South Park: The Fractured But Whole Released

It was quite a surprise back in 2015 when Ubisoft announced that they were going to develop the sequel to Obsidian's well-received South Park: The Stick of Truth, the superhero-themed South Park: The Fractured But Whole, at one of their in-house studios. It was an announcement that elicited a great deal of Obsidian mockery at the time, particularly since Ubisoft also decided to adopt a sophisticated-looking grid-based tactical combat system in place of the first game's JRPG-style combat. That mockery fell away as it became clear over time that The Fractured But Whole was almost as vaporwarey as its predecessor, with the release date pushed back several times. But today it's finally out. Here's the launch trailer:
The game seems to be reviewing about as well as The Stick of Truth did, perhaps a tad worse. The reviewers like the new combat system, but some disapprove of the Ubisoft-style item collection or are just tired of the whole South Park thing. If you're not tired of South Park and you're not too busy playing Divinity: Original Sin 2 ELEX, you can grab the game on Steam now for $60.
