Now that the long-in-development South Park: The Fractured But Whole is close at hand, Ubisoft and South Park Studios are finally opening up about its creation. To start, they've posted a behind-the-scenes video that isn't quite the usual puff piece. South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone not only why the game exists, how it was made and what's new, but how they got some of their feedback on The Stick of Truth. They apparently got plenty of helpful input by watching PewDiePie's playthrough -- after all, the YouTube star is telling you what he thinks at any given moment.

Also, you might not want to count on downloadable content reaching Fractured But Whole any time soon. Parker and Stone explain to IGN that they fought against including DLC in Stick of Truth for a reason -- they didn't think that anything they cut was worth playing. That might change with the newer release (there are a couple of ideas), but the creative duo isn't going to produce DLC strictly for its own sake. In short, it shouldn't feel like the developers are purposefully holding back to wring out some extra cash.
