Ubisoft’s irreverent South Park: The Fractured But Whole receives its next DLC on July 31st, the developer announced today. The new story content is dubbed Bring The Crunch and launches on PS4, Xbox One, and PC as a digital only download. Those who have purchased the Season Pass or the Gold Edition of the game will get the new DLC for free.
Bring The Crunch follows on from the game’s first DLC From dusk Till Casa Bonita and features a story campaign as well as a brand new superhero class known as Final Girl.
Reprising the role of the new kid, players are introduced to Mint-Berry Crunch freshly arrived from planet Kokujon and harnessing the mysterious power of, you guessed it, mint and berries. What this entails isn’t revealed and remains shrouded in confusion if we refer to the series’ frequent jabs at Mint-Berry Crunch having no discernible superpowers. He does have a well fleshed out backstory though, involving alien planets colliding and a mission to save planet earth.
Teaming up with Mint-Berry Crunch, and returning characters such as Professor Chaos and Doctor Timothy among others, you must get to the bottom of the mysterious disappearance of counselors at the Lake Tardicaca summer camp. Things quickly go awry with enemies of the creepy variety to contend with.
The Final Girl superhero class introduces fresh tactics, powers, and traps ideal for facing the Halloween-inspired evil befalling the summer camp. Once the DLC story is completed, players can carry the new class, powers, and Mint-Berry Crunch character over to the vanilla campaign to continue their South Park antics.
In other South Park gaming news, the prequel to The Fractured But Whole, The Stick of Truth is headed for Nintendo Switch by the end of September this year, Ubisoft revealed in their first quarter financial report. The unconventional move is explained by the presumed successful launch of The Fractured But Whole back in April. Ubisoft are seemingly eager to capitalize on the franchise’s popularity among Switch owners.
