Darker Skin Equals Higher Difficulty in South Park: The Fractured But Whole

After that, they're sent to a difficulty selection screen where, in a very South Park-style twist, the option you pick also happens to determine the color of your character's skin.

"This means that the default behaviors for nearly all the non-player characters in the game are easier on you than they would be otherwise", Scalzi wrote. "Just every other aspect of your life".

Yet another aspect of life just got more hard if you're not white.

During the character creation section of the game, which you can see in the video below (skip to the five minutes and 40 seconds mark), you select the difficulty of the game.

Ubisoft's South Park: The Stick of Truth was debatably easy depending on who you ask, even on its hardcore difficulty.

South Park has a long history of inserting social commentary on racial and gender issues into the show, a tradition that has frequently led to controversy.

While the tactical RPG takes a lot of influence from its predecessor, South Park: The Stick of Truth, there are several differences in the long-awaited sequel, like how the children dress up as superheroes instead of fantasy characters. The darker the skin tones go, the harder the game gets. There's just one thing, the game will respond to certain choices you make. Contrarily, the darker your character's skin color the less leeway the world has to offer. This change is enforced with a clever little ret-con, which will also allow players to choose whether they want to be cisgender or transgender. Mr. Mackey follows up with: "It still tracks with The Stick of Truth, yes it does. Yes of course. I get it". The game releases for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on October 17th.
