South Park game's difficulty slider also dictates your character's skin tone

South Park The Fractured But Whole gets harder if you're dark skinned 2 South Park: The Fractured But Whole is More Difficult if You Aren't White

Ooh, what woke social commentary! Things like other characters' responses to you, or how much money you can make, will change depending on cultural attitudes toward your character's identity-just like IRL!

Today, we learn that the player character in Ubisoft's upcoming South Park: The Fractured But Whole will be treated differently according to appearance.

There are options ranging from "Easy" to "Very Difficult", but as you opt to go for a harder selection, your skin color will get darker. For the first time in the series, players can choose to be female or "other" and if they identify as cisgender or transgender.

Adding to the social commentary are the gender options of the character. Lighter skin means less difficulty while darker skin means more difficulty.

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.

Kaia's mom Cindy Crawford also shared a message on Instagram . So excited for you!" she wrote . "It has to come from within". But they are both a part of life.

Alongside this change, players will now have the option to choose between a boy or a girl as their character, which was forced to the former in the previous title.

The only problem is that this game is a sequel to Stick of Truth, a game that didn't have gender so being anything but male would cause a plot hole.

The game has been reviewed by Eurogamer.net who said the character's color has impacts the difficulty of the game. Mr. Mackey follows up with: "It still tracks with The Stick of Truth, yes it does". She was definitely a girl the whole time.

South Park: The Fractured But Whole is set to be released on October 17 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
