South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone graced the E3 stage once again to show off their squeal to South Park: The Stick of Truth. During the Ubisoft conference we got a good look at both cut-scenes and gameplay for South Park: The Fractured But Whole.

The South Park boys will be leaving the world of wizards and warlocks in the previous title to tackle crime as superheros. Their alias Coon and Friends was developed within the TV show, and now they will transfer to the video game world as well. You will return as "the new kid", allowing you to customize your avatar and choose the class of superhero you wish to be. 

Combat will be expanded upon, through "time and space" manipulation. Space will allow the player to move about the combat space to get an edge on enemies, while time refers to your new fart abilities that can "rip the fabric of time itself" and mix up the turn order. You can check out more gameplay here from Ubisoft, which features South Park creators Trey and Matt's time on stage. You can also check out some new screenshots below including Cartman's "franchise plan" that parodies Marvel's superhero movie development.   

The game will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on December 6, and its predecessor South Park: The Stick of Truth will be available free with purchase.
