A new trailer and an 11-minute gameplay demo for South Park: The Fractured But Whole, the sequel to The Stick of Truth, were released this week. The game was announced at the E3 event two years ago.
In the first game the kids were playing Lord of the Rings-style fantasy, and as we’ve seen in previously released trailers and videos for The Fractured But Whole, they’ve jumped over to playing superhero franchises.
Continue below to read more about the game and watch the trailer and gameplay demo.
