Until 2018, it's just a combat challenge, skins and Towelie.

After a few delays, South Park: The Fractured But Whole will finally be released next week. If you're curious what the super-hero-themed RPG's season pass offers before laying down another $30 (assuming GameStop hasn't already guilted you into buying it), we've got you covered. Come launch day on October 17th, you'll only have access two two things: a costume and perks pack and Towelie, the pothead towel, who will give you tips in-game. Both will be sold separately; the former will cost $4.99 on launch day, and the latter will be $1.99 a week later.

The meat of the add-ons won't be available until later, and what sounds like a wave-based combat challenge ("Danger Deck," a nod to X-Men's "Danger Room") will launch sometime in December. Without the season pass, it'll cost $5.99. A pair of story expansions won't be available until 2018. "From Dusk to Casa Bonita" has you teaming up with Cartman's The Coon (above) and Kenny's Mysterion to take on a demonic presence, while "Bring the Crunch" adds a new story as well as an entirely new superhero class. Both will cost $11.99 a la carte.

If you're looking to save some money, and only want the extra missions, waiting until those are released in 2018 will be $6 cheaper. Plus, being patient means you'll have the chance to make an informed decision before laying down your hard-earned money -- always a good idea.
