The news from Ubisoft just keeps pouring in. This time, we got a new release date for South Park: The Fractured But Whole. Assuming it doesn’t get hit with another delay between now and release, we can expect to play the game on October 17.
This follows yesterday’s reveal that four AAA titles from Ubisoft would be returning over the course of the company’s current fiscal year. Ubisoft has been on a tear over the past few days, revealing their plans surrounding some of their biggest franchises, including Assassin’s Creed.
South Park: The Fractured But Whole will launch with four different tiers available. There’s the standard edition, of course, but there will also be Gold, Steelbook Gold, and Collector’s editions available for the game.
Both Gold editions are largely similar. They each come with the base game, the season pass for upcoming DLC, three South Park themed postcards, and extra costume perks in-game. The Steelbook Gold edition differs in that it includes a Steelbook case for the game.
Meanwhile, the Collector’s Edition includes a six-inch figurine of Eric Cartman’s alter ego, The Coon. Additionally, the $190 Special Edition that was announced last year remains available on Amazon. That package includes a remote controlled vehicle called The Coon Mobile.
Pre-ordering The Fractured But Whole will award players a copy of The Stick of Truth at no additional cost. Those who choose to do so will also gain access to Towelie, who’ll serve as an in-game assistant to the player.
The bonus offer for The Stick of Truth will last until January 1, 2018. Additionally, certain retailers will allow players to download and play the bonus game right now if they pre-order The Fractured But Whole.
South Park: The Fractured But Whole was originally scheduled to release December 6 of last year. It has since been delayed twice in order to ensure that the game meets Matt Stone and Trey Parker’s standards for the franchise.
When it launches, the game will be available for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. AS of right now, there are no currently announced plans to bring the game to the Nintendo Switch.
