Ubisoft's comedy RPG South Park: The Fractured but Whole features various levels of difficulty, from easy to very difficult, much like most games. What's different though is the difficulty affects the colour of your character's skin.

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're able to change the colour of your character's skin, as you'd expect. What's interesting is the easier the difficulty, the lighter your character's skin. Conversely, the harder the difficulty, the darker your character's skin. It means if you want to play The Fractured but Whole on a harder than normal difficulty, you have to play as a person of colour.

During the process, South Park stalwart Eric Cartman will comment: "Don't worry, this doesn't affect combat. Just every other aspect of your whole life."

Think the next paragraph is important

Our Aoife Wilson and Chris Bratt, who captured the gameplay in the video, asked Ubisoft developers about this feature during a recent hands-on event. They were told the difficulty of the game affects the amount of money you receive and the way other characters speak to you throughout the course of the game. It is, quite clearly, a social commentary on racism in modern society, and as far as video games go, a pretty effective one.

Love this! I did wonder though for black people who wanted to create themselves in game but didn't want a challenge that this might be a bit shitty - but apparently it doesn't really do anything.

Why did I get negged for suggesting that South Park  'Fracture but Whole'  is a play on 'butt hole'? It is, the creators have even admitted it.

See, when Parker and co-creator Matt Stone took this potential title up the chain of Ubisoft decision-makers, word came down that retailers wouldn’t allow them to use the word “butthole” in their title. Conservative chains like Walmart and Target probably wouldn’t have wanted a display case called South Park: The Butthole Of Time. As much fun as that would have been.

“So I just sat there at my desk for hours,” Parker said, “how do I get butthole, butthole, butt hole, butt hole, but hole, but whole!”
