South Park: The Fractured but Whole’s difficulty slider changes the colour of your skin
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 this video (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.”
