10 Things You Should Probably Know About "South Park: The Fractured But Whole"

Sh*t is about to hit the fan.

1. Matt Stone and Trey Parker wanted to call the game Butthole of Time, but retailers would've refused to put "butthole" in the display windows.

The huge gamers spent hours trying to find a "way" to get a name they were happy with that would also be retail-friendly.

2. You have a super "butthole" that lets you time travel and perform attacks.

Continuing on from Stick of Truth's use of characters' butts.

3. Every toilet in the game is useable and comes with a mini game.

All about that stick and poop action.

4. The difficulty setting is based on skin colour.

Always known for its scathing social commentary, the game pulls no punches highlighting this using the in-game difficulty setting.

5. You can fully customise your character, including a diverse range of RPG classes and genders.

You'll be able to choose how your character identifies themselves.

6. The story of the game takes place exactly one day after the last South Park game, The Stick of Truth.

The kids stopped playing fantasy and decided to play superheroes instead. You get given a free copy of "Stick Of Truth" with every purchase too.

7. It builds on the great RPG gameplay from Stick of Truth and gives it a modern twist...

RPG + superheroes = amazing.

8. ...including a really interesting new turn-based attack system.

It's turn-based but far more advanced than other RPG-style turn-based action, allowing for more freedom and also more comedy. With Fractured but Whole, the combat system has been overhauled to allow for more strategy, like moving your character into position before attacking.

9. Everything is hand-drawn.

Like South Park episodes, each character and item was hand-drawn first.

10. Oh, and you'll be able to build a social media presence and take selfies with surprise "celebrity" cameos.

And just like in real life you can get into "fights" in your comments sections.
