With crime on the rise in South Park, the streets have never been more dangerous. As the sun sets on the quiet Colorado town, havoc and chaos unleash a reign of terror and the seedy underbelly of the city comes alive. The town needs new heroes to rise! Eric Cartman seizes the opportunity to save the town and create the best superhero franchise ever, his own Coon & Friends with himself as the leader, The Coon.
Every superhero has an origin, and Coon & Friends are no different. Continuing in their role as the New Kid, players will discover their backstory, assemble their unique costumes, and harness their fart-based powers from numerous hero classes to create their own original hero. An all-new combat system offers unique opportunities to master space and time while on the battlefield, and a revamped looting and crafting system gives players the freedom to craft their own equipment to aid them in battle.
South Park: The Fractured But Whole will be available in four editions: Standard, Gold, Steelbook Gold and Collector’s. Anyone who purchases South Park: The Fractured But Whole will receive South Park: The Stick of Truth for free.* If you pre-purchase the game at select partners, you can start playing The Stick of Truth immediately.

Matt Stone and Trey Parker join Bill Simmons to discuss how they tackled the Presidential election in the 20th season of Comedy Central’s South Park. The two explain how they had an episode prepared for a Hillary Clinton victory and how they had to pivot late Tuesday evening before airing their election show the following day. With a President-elect Trump, they discussed going black or putting up “under construction” signage, but instead they went to the dry erase board, rearranged and brainstormed and were able to put a show together reflecting what had just happened, turning what would have been dubbed “The First Gentleman” into “Oh Jeez.”
