South Park: The Fractured But Whole Devs Discuss Features, DLC and More
Ubisoft has released a new behind-the-scenes video for its upcoming title, South Park: The Fractured But Whole, in which developers Matt Stone and Trey Parker talk about the inspiration behind the game and discuss some of its new features. You can watch the developer diary above.
In related news, both Stone and Parker spoke with IGN during the San Diego Comic-Con, discussing their views on DLC. Explaining why they didn’t want it in Stick of Truth, Stone and Parker said that they didn’t like the idea of releasing content that was cut and that they would only do DLC if it was worth it. However, times have changed now, with DLC adding to the experience so the upcoming title might receive some add-ons as long as they’re not “bullshit.”
The world has changed too for games. It’s not like you have this game and you have a couple things to download. You have this game and you’re trying to create this living thing. … You’ve got the world, and now we can — instead of starting from scratch — we can say, here’s a little adventure we can do. And as long as it’s not bullshit, as long as it’s real work, that’s cool. It’s more like, it’s extras. You can tell that they were things that were thrown aside.
South Park: The Fractured But Whole is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on December 6. If you haven’t already, you can read our E3 2016 preview here.
