South Park: The Fractured But Whole is getting a season pass
Ubisoft's upcoming South Park RPG South Park: The Fractured But Whole is nearly out, and the game is coming with plenty of downloadable content in the near future. And new information on the game's season pass reveals just how much DLC players can expect after the game's release.
First off, the season pass comes free for fans that pick up the game's Gold Edition. Expect to pay a huge price for it, with GameStop listing pre-orders at $89.99 for a digital download and the Steelbook Gold Edition going for $99.99. Otherwise, the season pass can be bought for $30. So arguably, it's better to just pick up the Gold Edition from the start.
After all, the season pass covers a lot of content. Ubisoft is launching a Towelie-themed DLC called "Towelie: Your Gaming Bud" for $2, giving players in-game tips through Towelie. That DLC is out on day one for season pass owners, and available by Oct. 24 for non-pass buyers.
There's also the "Relics of Zaron" DLC, giving special costumes with in-game ability bonuses. That upgrade is available from the game's release for anyone who buys the pass. Otherwise, it officially launches on Oct. 17 for $5.
Then there's three bonus missions available afterward. "Danger Deck," which drops for $6 for non-season pass owners, has players go into battle against Doctor Timothy's Danger Deck. It's then followed by "From Dusk till Casa Bonita," where players will fight back against demons at the titular location in 2018. Non-season pass owners can grab the DLC for $12 when it launches.
And lastly, "Bring the Crunch" lands for $12 next year, with a new superhero class coming to the game. That's quite a bit of content, clocking in just above $30 when DLC is bought separately. So for power fans, the season pass is a great way to save a few dollars. South Park: The Fractured But Whole launches on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 on Oct. 17.
