After a break from the series, Ubisoft came out the gates running with their latest iteration of the flagship Assassin's Creed franchise, this time with Assassin's Creed: Origins. The newest entry takes players back to the beginning of the timeline for the Assassin's story, originating in Egypt set in the times of pharaoh's and Roman occupied cities with the country of Egypt.

20 years ago, it was hard to believe that a strangely animated TV show about crude children would be such a hit. Now in the modern day we have 20 series of possibly the most current TV show being made, where the storylines hit out about current weeks events and nobody is safe from the mocking. Trey Parker and Matt Stone are two giant names in the current entertainment industry; their humour sets out to entertain in what some people see as an offensive manner. No doubt their special brand of comedy has landed them in trouble with many a different celebrity and yet they have outlasted a lot of "celebrities". There have been TV series, a film and a few computer games; though it was not until March 2014 with the release of South Park: The Stick of Truth that we felt like South Park had finally cracked the interactive barrier.
3 years later we are now here to take a look at South Park: The Fractured but Whole, the sequel that redefines the RPG game with brilliant combat mechanics and a shed load of character customisation. Players will once again step into the role of "The New Kid", who not only ruled in the Stick of Truth; they now have to take on the evil under belly of South Park as a superhero in The Fractured but Whole. The transition from fantasy RPG to superhero RPG was a clever one, also one that did not raise too many questions as this is South Park after all and it is kids playing. When it comes time to create your character and chose what you look like and what to wear, there is a perfectly good reason to reset your stats and start from scratch all over again.
The powerful statement being put forward by Ubisoft in the latest trailer for the return of their iconic Assassin's Creed franchise. The latest trailer is a terrifying display of patience and planning, with the general public lying in wait to overthrow all who oppress them. The concept behind the trailer is that an idea and a code can be more powerful than any army or leader, the words spoken in the trailer are dark and full of purpose.
South Park: The Fractured but Whole isn't out until 17th October but we already have a list of downloadable content (DLC) that will be coming for the game over the coming months and that will be included with the season pass. The DLC will be as follows:
Danger Deck - Doctor Timothy's Danger deck will be the ultimate challenge of combat. Players will be able to unlock exclusive costumes and artefacts. This DLC will be available in December 2017.
