South Park: The Fractured But Whole
South Park: The Fractured But Whole is a computer role-playing game that wasdeveloped and publishedby Ubisoft in collaboration with South Park Digital Studios. It is the sequel to South Park: The Stick of Truth and is based on the American adult series South Park . Like the series, it was written by Trey Parker and Matt Stone .
The fractured ordeal takes place chronologically after the plot of South Park: The Stick of Truth . The school children Stan, Kyle, Cartman and Kenny embark on a new adventure with their friends. This time they play superheroes and use their hometown South Park in the Colorado Rocky Mountains again . However, with Cartman's franchise plans, the boys fall out and split into two rival groups. Cartman's followers join the Coon and Friends group , while the others join the Freedom Pals group to pursue their own franchise plans. The dispute grows into a war between the two rival parties.
In South Park: The Fractured Butcher, there are twelve superhero classes to choose from to play the children's superhero adventures: Brutalist, Blaster, Speedster, Elementalist, Gadgeteer, Mystic, Cyborg, Psychic, Assassin, Commander, Netherborn and Karate Kid. As in the previous game, the player controls "the new one" in town, but this time can choose the gender of the silent character.
In March 2014, South Park co-writers Matt Stone and Trey Parker said they would be open to a sequel, depending on the reception of its predecessor South Park: The Stick of Truth . The sequel, South Park: The Fractured But Whole , was announced in June 2015. This time, however, the development is taken over by Ubisoft San Francisco for the platforms Microsoft Windows , Xbox One and PlayStation 4 , and not like with the predecessor of Obsidian Entertainment .
In the English original, the title should actually be The Butthole of Time , loosely translated as The Butthole of Time . However, Matt Stone and Trey Parker were advised that outlets would not put products with the word "asshole" on their shelves. That's why Trey Parker worked for a few hours to hide the word in the title. Then he came up with the title The Fractured But Whole , the broken but whole , whereby the word combination "But Whole" sounds like the English word "butthole". This reference has been modified and adopted in the German title.
