If you like to laugh and you have a crude side to your sense of humor, then you are probably already very familiar with South Park. If you are a gamer, then you also know that in 2014, a videogame was released called South Park: The Stick of Truth. However, you might not have realized that the sequel to that very popular and acclaimed game is actually just around the corner. If you love South Park, and you had fun with the first them, then you are going to love South Park: The Fractured But Whole SteelBook Gold Edition.
What Makes These Games Great?
First, you will find that this game, as well as The Stick of Truth, are not your typical type of game based on a licensed property. These games are actually quite good. They are high quality games at every level. The design of the games looks identical to the cartoon. In fact, if you didn’t know you were playing a game, you would swear you were watching an episode of the series.
That brings us to the next point. The humor is spot on. It feels like an episode of the show because Trey Parker and Matt Stone actually wrote it, just as they did with the first game. If you love the off the wall humor found in South Park, then you are going to love the game.
Expect More of the Same Greatness With South Park: The Fractured But Whole SteelBook Gold Edition
In The Stick of Truth, the kids in the town of South Park were pretending they were in a fantasy novel or movie, and you played as the New Kid. Naturally, Cartman and the others weren’t getting along, so the boys were at war. In this game, the concept is similar, but the theme has changed. Here, everyone is pretending to be superheroes. Naturally, Cartman and the others aren’t getting along – they disagree regarding how their film franchise should play out.
You will once again play as the New Kid in town. However, this time, you can choose whether you want to play as a boy or a girl. They have revealed a number of character classes already. They include Brutalist, Blaster, Speedster, Assassin, Cyborg, Elementalist, Gadgeteer, Psychic, Commander, Netherborn, and Karate Kid.
The gameplay should feel very similar to those who played the first game. In The Stick of Truth, the game played like a turn-based RPG. This new game will play in the same manner. However, there are going to be some differences when it comes to the types of powers and perks available, simply because we are dealing with superheroes in this case.
The game has a lot of potential for anyone who loves RPGs and, of course, for those who are huge fans of South Park. However, it is advisable for those who are unfamiliar with the show to watch an episode or two first to get an idea of the type of humor that will be involved. It’s a cartoon, but that doesn’t mean it is for little children, and the same holds true of the game.
What Does This Edition Offer?
When you get the South Park: The Fractured But Whole SteelBook Gold Edition, it comes with the Season Pass Subscription. This means that when they release new content for the game over the course of the year, you are able to download it without paying any additional fees since you bought the version with the season pass. It is generally going to be a much better deal when you buy the season pass rather than buying each piece of DLC one at a time.

Another one of the bonuses is the in-game content that comes with the South Park: The Fractured But Whole SteelBook Gold Edition.
