South Park: The Stick of Truth is a RPG based on the very crude, very popular TV show, South Park. The players take on the role of a new kid in town, picking one of the five classes (Fighter, Mage, Thief, Cleric, and Jew), and setting out on an epic adventure along with Stan, Kyle, Cartman, Kenny, and others. The game is developed by Obsidian Entertainment known for RPGs like Neverwinter Nights 2 and Fallout: New Vegas, and uses the trademark cutout animation visual style from the television series.
The Stick of Truth is similar to Paper Mario or Final Fantasy in that the players can explore South Park freely as a party, while the battle system is turn-based where each member of the group can attack, use an item, or perform a special move when it’s their time to act. Some elements like blocking or dealing additional damage require a well-timed input.
Pre-order South Park: The Stick of Truth and get the Ultimate Fellowship Pack for free. Said pack gives you four bonus costumes with special perks: Necromancer Sorcerer boosts your fire damage, Rogue Assassin lets you earn extra gold, Ranger Elf increases weapon damage, and Holy Defender raises your defense.
In addition to that, the following retailers are also offering some exclusive incentives:
- GameStop: Super Spaceman Samurai Pack which includes three more costumes. Superhero buffs your character at the start of every fight, Samurai buffs you when you defeat an enemy, and Spaceman provides an emergency shield.
