Prep For Profanity ‘Cos The New ‘South Park’ Game Won’t Be Censored In Aus

If you played the Australian version of the last South Park game, The Stick of Truth, you’ll know that it was pretty heavily censored, which would lead you to assume the upcoming title, The Fractured But Whole would suffer the same fate.

I got to play the new game for about 40 minutes at E3 and while absolutely hilarious, I couldn’t see it clearing the Classification Board in its current state.

To give you an idea of what I mean, the part I played tasks the player – who assumes the role of a child – with getting information from two grown-ass men in a strip club by giving them a lap dance and farting on them.

In a Ubisoft press release, the company announced that the game has been given an R18+ rating, so we’ll definitely be getting it here in Australia. It also notes that the game is “completely uncut and uncensored”, so there you go.

How the company managed to slide this one through classification is anyone’s guess, but it’s awesome that we don’t have to cop another game with shitty censorship.

Gamers who played the censored version of The Stick of Truth received the screens below when they encountered an especially naughty section of the game.

South Park: The Fractured But Whole is due out on the 17th of October for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
