The South Park TV show has its own game. An RPG called South Park: Fractured but Whole. Interesting to say the least. Unfortunately, the team behind it all delayed the release of the game. The Ubisoft official blog explains that the team working on the game needs to make sure the game meets with the fans’ high expectations. They don’t want to disappoint them and for this reason, the game will take a few more months to fully develop the way they want it to. It will come out on PS4, Xbox One and PC in the first part of 2017 (the game was supposed to come out on December 6, 2016)
Something to look forward to
The South Park game it is indeed a thing to look forward to. The game’s creators, Trey Parker and Matt Stone tried to find a way to make this game even better than the first one (South Park: The Stick of Truth). They even watched and took some useful tips from famous YouTube video game player PewDiePie.
Considered to be the spiritual heir to the first game, this one follows a superhero theme rather than its fantasy themed predecessor. The Stick of Truth was heavily influenced by some medieval fantasy games. That’s not the case with this one. The game borrows heavily from other more serious RPG games. It makes you choose your class and uses strategy for the combat. You need to use some tactics in order to experience the full complexity of the game. You have tanks, healers, melee and long-ranged classes, as in any other respected RPG game.
What it’s actually about
There are four main characters in the game. Coon (Eric Cartman), is the ex-leader of the group. They kicked him out of it for being unpleasant. Mysterion (Kenny McCormick), is the new leader, who was elected in a democratic manner. The Human Kite (Kyle Broflovski), thinks he can fly and shoot lasers out of his eyes. And finally Toolshed (Stan Marsh), who’s telepathic powers over all tools make him a valuable ally.
If you are familiar with the TV show (and I believe you are if you’re reading this), you’ll know which one of them actually has a special power. Not a very pleasant one but… he’s special.
Witty, funny, ironical= South Park
The title of the game has South Park written all over it. Funny, witty, unusual and full of jokes and ironies. We can only hope that the time the producers have taken will do some good to the final product. Fans will probably buy it anyway, but it would be nice to have this game as a standalone RPG which everyone can enjoy.
It’s a very good thing that they decided to take some advices from people like PewDiePie who know a thing or two about gaming. This is proof that the team cares about their fans and want to offer them the best game experience they are able to. Let’s pray that they’ll succeed.
