Despite the fact that the game was only released last week, Ubisoft isn’t beating around the bush and has released a free trial for South Park: The Fractured But Whole on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The free trial has been designed to give players a chance to try out the game, and will feature no alterations (read: censorship) to its gameplay. The only restriction is that it’s limited to one hour. 

After players have completed the trial, they’ll be asked if they wish to buy the full game. Like all of the other recent games from Ubisoft that have received free trials, if you decide to buy it, all of your progress from the trial carries over into the full game.

The Fractured but Whole follows on from the end of South Park: The Stick of Truth as the kids embark on a new adventure in the town, except this time they’re superheroes. Players will once again control The New Kid, and now have the option of choosing the gender and the skin colour of the protagonist. 

Colm played the game recently, and enjoyed his time with it noting that for all the game’s fun he grew tired of the game’s humour, saying that, ‘the effect of a well-written joke diminishes each time you hear it. It’s only natural, really.’ 

South Park: The Fractured But Whole is out now on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
