South Park: The Fractured But Whole Season Pass Details

South Park: The Fractured But Whole Season Pass Details

With the release of South Park: The Fractured But Whole just a weekend away, Ubisoft has decided it’s time to unveil the raunchy RPG‘s post-launch DLC plans. South Park: The Fractured But Whole‘s Season Pass features a collection of three DLC packs to be delivered in the months after launch, as well some “Day One” DLC to help with the wait. Those who buy the full game will be able to purchase the Season Pass starting on October 17, launch day, for an additional $29.99.

Three DLC expansions will make up the bulk of South Park: The Fractured But Whole‘s Season Pass. Two of those DLC packages will add new story content and the third will be a challenge mode with unique costumes and artifacts available as a reward. The story DLC won’t be available until 2018 while the challenge mode will launch in December.

  • Danger Deck: where players will have to face the ultimate combat challenge in Doctor Timothy’s Danger Deck. They will be able to unlock exclusive costumes and artifacts. “Danger Deck” will be available for $5.99 in December 2017.
  • From Dusk till Casa Bonita: a new story where players will team up with The Coon and Mysterion to defeat a demonic presence at Casa Bonita. This content will be available for $11.99 in 2018.
  • Bring the Crunch: which will introduce a new story, including an all-new superhero class. It will be available for $11.99 in 2018.

Pricing is notably efficient, so South Park: The Fractured But Whole players that are only interested in story content can skip out on the Danger Deck and end up saving some money compared to the full Season Pass.

The two “Day One” DLC bits are the Relics of Zaron costume and perks pack and the Towelie: Your Gaming Bud DLC, who provides in-game tips. They’ll cost $4.99 and $1.99, and release on October 17 and 24 respectively.

South Park: Fractured But Whole Season Pass Revealed - Casa Bonita

South Park: The Fractured But Whole‘s was initially revealed as part of the game’s special editions and is not unprecedented. The RPG’s predecessor did feature DLC in much smaller scale. South Park: The Stick of Truth had a small amount of platform exclusive and collector’s edition exclusive DLC. The increased DLC offering seems in-line with what Ubisoft now regularly puts out with any of its large games.

The timeliness of Ubisoft’s announcement may seem somewhat suspect, too. With South Park: The Fractured But Whole just a few days from officially launching, burying a Season Pass announcement on a Friday could be taken as Ubisoft hoping the news doesn’t spread very far. Ubisoft could be worried about the online reaction to the announcement, have little faith in the DLC, or may simply not have prepared for the announcement adequately. The launch of the full game may help clarify the situation.

South Park: The Fractured But Whole releases on October 17 for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
