The New South Park Game Literally Stinks Thanks To Nosulus Rift
Like many of Trey Parker and Matt Stone’s controversial creations, 2014’s South Park: The Stick of Truth earned acclaim, commercial success, and all kinds of awards. It’s understandable, then, that the duo would return to video games for a sequel known as South Park: The Fractured But Whole. (You may need to say it out loud to get the scatological wordplay.)
According to the game’s official synopsis, “a dark shadow has spread across the quiet town of South Park,” inspiring Cartman and company to form a superhero gang known as Coon & Friends. “As the newest member of Coon & Friends, you must create your own superhero, build up your notoriety, and use your incredible abilities to save South Park,” Ubisoft explains. “Only then will Coon & Friends take their rightful place as the greatest team of super heroes ever assembled, and get the movie deal they so richly deserve. In a city gripped by chaos, justice will be silent… but deadly.”
If that last part stirs memories of juvenile fart jokes, it’s no accident. Ubisoft is offering dedicated South Park fans a chance to go even deeper into The Fractured But Whole with a convention exclusive known as Nosulus Rift. Taking virtual reality to “a whole new level,” this device allows you to experience the game in “the most immersive way possible.” In short, it allows you to smell what The Fractured But Whole has to offer, namely farts.
South Park: The Fractured But Whole will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on December 6, just in time to corrupt your holidays. Watch the new trailer below or sample 15 minutes of irreverent game play here.
