Ubisoft has been on a role lately, pumping out new content for many of their upcoming fall releases including the sequel to Obsidian's South Park. The new trailer takes digs at Marvel's Captain America: Civil War in typical NSFW South Park fashion.

The trailer is only a minute and 30 seconds long and was recently posted up to the South Park Studios channel, but it manages to convey the fractured rift between the two groups of superheroes in the upcoming South Park: The Fractured But Whole.

The story elements are intertwined more-so into a look at the gameplay content this time around. We finally get to see some more of the superpowers that some of the kids will be able to utilize during battle. In one sequence, some robbers invade one of the homes and players will have to duke it out with them, not unlike the original 3 Ninjas.

We get to see some specialized superpowers on display as well, including super speed, where the kid runs around pummeling on the robbers. We also get a look at some of the custom costumes that players can outfit their character with. A lot of the stuff looks scrappy and as if it were pulled out of an old chest in the attic. Nevertheless, the customization fits in well with the kind of world that South Park: The Fractured But Whole is going for. So don't expect to get in there and make a character who looks like they would fit in well with DC Universe Online or Champions Online.

It's hard to make out what some of the superpowers are in the game, but we do see things like quantum teleportation, projectiles, and plenty of melee attacks. The trailer doesn't spend any time whatsoever going over the more technical aspects of the combat, story or characters, but it's mostly designed to help inform people that the game is coming and that it parodies the whole superhero movie genre in a way that only Matt Stone and Trey Parker could.

The stage presentation at this year's E3 in Los Angeles, California actually revealed that the game is working on a much deeper technical level than South Park: The Stick of Truth. The combat now uses lanes that can determine who gets hit and how. They also have positional attacks, where moving characters into a specific position can alter how well they work both defensively and offensively.

Just like the trailer above reveals, the story moves from the medieval-fantasy elements and Tolkien-style themes of the previous game, toward the more trendy fashion of superheroes, which is the "in thing" right now. Of course, there are plenty of NSFW jokes, themes, and language to keep it all within the perspective of a parody, and they even manage to dabble into the whole process of how both DC and Marvel have been handling the roll out of their superhero franchises.

You can expect to get your hands on South Park: The Fractured But Whole starting December 6th for the Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
