Aw scary! Look, a skeleton!
After years of delays and setbacks, South Park: The Fractured But Whole will finally be landing on consoles this Tuesday. The verdict is still out on whether that extra time was well spent, but if you just have to have everything South Park related, know that the kids’ latest journey will have a season pass. That same pass will also take you to the greatest place on Earth; Casa Bonita (which I just found out was a real place in Colorado).
Priced at $29.99 (and included with the Gold Edition), the pass will include two new story expansions, costumes and perks from The Stick of Truth, a guide in the form of Towlie, combat challenges and additional super heroes. The first bit of content will be the “Danger Deck,” a challenge room fashioned after Doctor Timothy’s evil lair. It will be coming in December and can be nabbed by itself for $5.99.
The first story mission, which will be available at some point in 2018, is called “From Dusk till Casa Bonita” and will see your character team up with Cartman and Kenny to defeat demons at the world’s greatest restaurant. The second story expansion is titled “Bring the Crunch,” but doesn’t even have a description. Both can be purchased separately for $11.99.
This wouldn’t be a Ubisoft game without some day one DLC, so that is also included! The first bit will be the “Relics of Zaron” costume and perks pack. This will be available on launch for $4.99. The second bit is “Towlie: Your Gaming Bud,” who will offer tips to the player. Towlie will be available on October 24 for $1.99.
I’m not quite sure how I feel about this game having a season pass, but if the writing is as funny as Stick of Truth, then I wouldn’t mind spending more time in the world of South Park. I’m definitely saddened that Towlie is being relegated to DLC, but its actually kind of fitting for “the worst new character ever.”
