This game was released on October 17, 2017 and is no longer available to pre-order. Any incentives that were offered are listed below.

The Fractured But Whole is a sequel to the 2014 comedy RPG, The Stick of Truth. The New Kid returns as the protagonist, and this time the boys are playing superheroes. Players create their own hero, choosing from several classes and customizing their appearance, and join the Coon and Friends to fight crime which has been on the rise in the town. There is also a competing group, Freedom Pals, which split off from Cartman’s organization resulting in a civil war between the superheroes.

South Park: The Fractured But Whole makes the combat more complex by adding a tactical grid, which means the players now have to mind their positioning and use the environment to their advantage. Also new to the game is a crafting system which allows the players to create their own equipment.
