After an elephantine gestation period, Ubisoft and South Park Studios’ follow-up to The Stick of Truth, South Park: The Fractured but Whole is finally on the verge of release. Yet somehow, through all the delays, the crafty chaps managed to also start work on some DLC to justify a season pass. If you’re into that sort of thing, you know, paying a small fortune for a game and then paying again for a bit more.
The season pass, as detailed via the South Park Studios blog, kicks off right away (oh, no, they definitely couldn’t have squeezed this content onto the disc, no way) with the Relics of Zaron costumes and perk pack on launch day, followed by Towlie: Your Gaming Bud on 24 October. For those two, non-season pass owners will need to shell out $4.99 and $1.99 respectively (local price unconfirmed for now). At least things get a bit more interesting from there on, with some proper story content, as copied and pasted directly below because it’s Monday and I’ll be buggered if I’m retyping all of that:
- “Danger Deck”, where players will have to face the ultimate combat challenge in Doctor Timothy’s Danger Deck . They will be able to unlock exclusive costumes and artifacts. “Danger Deck” will be available for $5.99 on December 2017.
- “From Dusk till Casa Bonita”, a new story where players will team up with The Coon and Mysterion to defeat a demonic presence at Casa Bonita. This content will be available for $11.99 in 2018.
- “Bring the Crunch”, which will introduce a new story, including an all new superhero class. It will be available for $11.99 in 2018.
South Park: The Fractured but Whole season pass is included as part of the Gold Edition, which is listed at R1299.00 on Xbox.com.
