New trailer reveals release date of 'South Park: The Fractured But Whole'

South Park: The Fractured But Whole Trailer – The Farting Vigilante
After previously announcing that South Park: The Fractured But Whole would be released within the next fiscal year, Ubisoft has revealed a new trailer giving fans a more exact date.

According to Ubisoft, the upcoming South Park sequel releases on October 17 of this year. The game is still slated for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Fans of the series can pre-order one of four editions — Standard, Gold, Steelbook Gold, and Collector’s Gold — from Ubisoft starting Wednesday.

The Standard Edition  comes with the game and costs $60, but Ubisoft has included a few pre-order bonuses that will come with every edition of The Fractured But Whole. For anyone who missed out on The Stick of Truth, each purchase comes with a free download code for that game on PS4, Xbox One, or PC. This previous entry in the series is available to play right now, so there’s plenty of time to master it before the sequel releases. All pre-orders also come with Towelie, an exclusive in-game assistant.

For $90 and $100 respectively, the Gold and Steelbook Gold Editions come with a season pass and additional in-game costume perks. The latter also features a steelbook case, three South Park postcards, and several lithographic prints. Going a step further, the Collector’s Gold Edition includes a few extra collectibles including the lithographic prints and a six-inch-tall figurine of “The Coon” character. This edition retails for $130.

Exclusive to Amazon is a Special Edition  that comes with a remote control Coon Mobile. It will retail for $190. Further details on the various editions of South Park: The Fractured But Whole can be found on the official website.

The South Park sequel was originally set to release on December 6, 2016. In September, the game was pushed back for the first time into the first quarter of 2017, only to be delayed again shortly thereafter. Now that The Fractured But Whole has an official release date, all that is left to do is wait.

There are no plans to bring the game to the Nintendo Switch.

Slime Rancher 2: Release date, trailers, gameplay, and more
Beatrix LeBeau looks over Rainbow Island in Slime Rancher 2.

The ranching adventures of Beatrix LeBeau will continue in Slime Rancher 2, a sequel to the award-winning, smash-hit open-world spacey ranching simulator original. Announced as somewhat of a surprise sequel at E3 2021, there are still very few details about what the sequel will look like. We know we'll be exploring an island, capturing and raising cute little slimes of all varieties, selling their plots, and just having a grand time. But how will this sequel expand on the original? Are we going to see new slimes? New tech? More lore?

Here's everything we know about Slime Rancher 2 so far!

Skate: release date speculation, trailers, gameplay, and more
A skateboarder approaching a ramp.

It's been over 10 years since we got the last game in the hit Skate series, and ever since, fans of the series have been asking when EA will finally return to this unique take on the skateboarding genre. In that time, the skating genre has seen a major resurgence. Not only has the Tony Hawk series made a comeback with the Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 & 2 remake, but other games like Skater XL and Skatebird have appeared to fill in this gap in the market.

However, no game has quite filled the void that Skate filled. Thankfully, we do know that Skate is happening. First announced way back during EA Play in 2020, there has been precious little information about this highly anticipated return to a more grounded style of a skateboarding video game. Even so, there are still a few details we've learned about what this next Skate game will look like and when we can hope to finally play it. Here's everything we know about Skate.
