Ahead of South Park: The Fractured But Whole’s release, Ubisoft has detailed what is included its season pass. Purchasing into the pass will grant players access to three lots of major DLC, as well as smaller content available on release.
Danger Deck is the title of the first post-launch DLC, arriving at a currently unspecified point in December. Alongside bringing exclusive unlockable content such as costumes and artefacts, the core portion of the DLC centres around “the ultimate combat challenge against Doctor Timothy’s Danger Deck.”
The second lot of DLC is called “From Dusk till Casa Bonita,” which is the first of two currently planned story episodes. Releasing sometime in 2018, the player must “team up with The Coon and Mysterion to defeat a demonic presence at Casa Bonita”.
Ubisoft has kept quiet on its third and final planned DLC expected to arrive later in 2018, giving just the title; Bring the Crunch. This is set to be the second story episode and will introduce a brand new superhero class for the player.
The season pass launches with the game next Tuesday, on October 17th and is available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. Day One DLC included within the pass includes The Relics of Zaron costume and perks pack, while other minor content such as the Towelie in-game tip buddy follows up the week after, beginning October 24th. Pre-ordering the game before its launch also nets the player an instant download code for the first game, The Stick of Truth.
The season pass comes in at $30 with UK pricing yet to be confirmed. Each bit of DLC can be purchased separately, with the Towelie in-game tip buddy coming in at $2, The Relics of Zaron costume and perks pack at $5, Danger Deck at $6 and both story packs at $12 each. This makes buying the season pass a saving of $7 for those that intend to get everything they can from the title, however those who have purchased the Gold Edition of the Collector’s Gold Edition will already have it all included.
KitGuru Says: This has honestly been one of my most anticipated games of the year, with many already describing it as a better RPG than its tamer, accessible predecessor. After games like the Arkham series, in my opinion, mishandling the season pass model and offering very little content within it, I am sceptical but I have faith that the story content in The Fractured But Whole will make it worthwhile. Do you plan on picking up the new South Park game? What do you think of the season pass?
