While South Park: The Fractured But Whole was first announced during last years Ubisoft conference, this year we got some more details as to what changes are being made to the combat and a live gameplay demo that was definitively the funniest demo out of E3.

Several details were unveiled about the Fractured But Whole by Matt Stone and Trey Parker during Ubisoft’s E3 conference. Building off of the previous game in the series (The Stick of Truth), player characters are now no long stuck to one space during combat and can move around to get better attacks on enemies or team up with other characters to unleash combo attacks. Farts can also be used to slow down time, which may allow the player to have more time in plotting out their next attack or allow multiple attacks on the same enemy.

Even with all the gameplay news regarding the Fractured But Whole, it was also extremely refreshing to witness Matt Stone and Trey Parker talk about their game on stage so casually and comfortably compared to other developers. They even divulged that many of the new tweaks to gameplay came from their love of tabletop gaming and that they would play tabletop games with the lead of the development team in order to come up with new concepts and how they could be implemented into the game.

I was a major fan of South Park: The Stick of Truth and am thoroughly looking forward to The Fractured But Whole which is out December 6th on all major platforms. Keep a tab on Inside The Box for more E3 updates.
