Unlike the previous game, South Park: The Fractured But Whole lets you choose your character’s gender. Last time around, the New Kid was a boy by default – this time, players can choose between “male”, “female” and “other”. However, the choice isn’t available at the character creation screen, so many players are confused, wondering how to choose gender in South Park Fractured But Whole. You can’t really miss it, but since it happens after a while, people are getting concerned that it might not be included.
How to choose gender in South Park Fractured But Whole?
The option becomes available after you spend your first night in town. You’ll get a quest called The Talk, which is part of the main mission chain, so you won’t be able to miss or ignore it. It will task you with going to the school and talking to the guidance counselor, Mr Mackey. When you visit him, he’ll give you an awkward but supportive talk about gender, and let you make your choice. As we’ve mentioned, you can choose between male, female and other. It may seems like the choice is final, as talking to him again doesn’t give an option to change your gender.
However, as you progress further into the game, you’ll get another quest, called The Talk 2: The Gendering. You’ll have to visit Mackey again, and you’ll go through another talk. This one will focus on both your gender and your sexuality, and you’ll be presented with a plethora of options. When you’re done, he’ll offer you a gender/sex “title” based on your answers, and if you don’t like it, you can have another go. Best of all, after this point, you can always return to his office and have the talk again if you want to change your gender.
