The Obsidian-developed RPG gets a definitive title and a release date.
Matt Parker and Trey Stone have rocked onto the stage of Microsoft’s conference at this year’s E3 to announce that the much talked about South Park tie-in game currently at development at Obsidian will be dubbed ‘South Park: The Stick of Truth’ and will be released March next year.
The official release date for North America is Tuesday, 5th March, and we suspect the European release date will be Friday, 8th March. Incidentally the RPG will also be released on PC, Xbox 360 and PC.
The creators of the show also talked about how they’re attempting to create an experience which makes players feel as though they’re in an episode of the show, with all the wanton violence, racism and toilet humour you’ve come to expect – as if we’d want anything different!
A trailer for the RPG was also shown and featured footage of ‘gingers’, Jesus wielding a rocket launcher, bears and massive explosions portrayed in the show’s trademark 2D cutout style, as well as a detailed character creator which allows players to insert their own likeness into the iconic township.
Voice command support will also be supported, if you have Kinect-enabled hardware that is, so you’ll be able to call Cartman out on his generously portioned posterior and he’ll respond in turn. How exciting!
During the presentation is was also confirmed that the first three downloadable episode packs for South Park: The Stick of Truth will bea timed-exclusive on the Xbox 360. Interestingly these episodes will be standalone and will all be story-based; very interesting…
