The lights are on
The world of South Park is full of various groups that translate perfectly to RPG factions.
In South Park: The Game, players will battle against or perform quests for all kinds of factions, which will raise or lower their standing with each group. Several of these potential factions have appeared on our cover and in screenshots in our latest issue. Though it's unclear how they'll play out in the game at this point, we've compiled a list of factions that have appeared in our cover story and some that we hope will make it into the game. Click on the links for episodes and clips from SouthParkStudios.com (warning: adult content). Don't forget to check out the South Park hub for more on the game.
We'd guess Cartman would like nothing more than to join your party and join in the beat down of his oldest enemy. Watch out for their protest sign melee attacks.
Gingers will probably be stronger at night. Hopefully, there will be light enchanted weapons that harness the power of the sun to target their weakness.
These kids aren't really vampires so you shouldn't have to worry about bites. Just keep them away from the curative properties of Clamato.
These kids are seemingly identical to the vampires except they drink coffee and smoke cigarettes. Be sure to tell them that to trigger a berserker rage.
As if Hooters wasn't already creepy enough, Raisins hires only tween girls. If battle breaks out in this restaurant, be wary of their charm spells and subtle back and arm touches. Before you know it, your wallet will be completely empty.
If metrosexual dudes show up in the game, don't be surprised if they transform into crab people partway through the fight. Special attack? Crab makeovers.
Hope you didn't have a rare set of underpants equipped because if you've seen one of these guys running around they're already gone.
We're hoping these hyper-annoying Jar Jar Binks-inspired creatures aren't allowed to multiply. Otherwise, you'll be fighting an army in no time.
The stronghold for the North American Man/Boy Love Association would be a dangerous dungeon, but being able to summon the North American Marlon Brando Look-Alikes to your side would help even the odds.
These guys will surely ruin tranquil scenes with their loud, obnoxious motorcycles. Try not to pay them any attention. It only encourages them more.

hey don't forget the possible new enemy type from this past season the Agnostict's they drink dr. pepper and diet dr. pepper why beause its neither cola nor rootbeer nobody is sure what flavour it is and nobody can be sure, the only way to defeat them is with Pasbt Blue Ribbon.
This could be one of the best games I'll ever play the way it looks right now.
Are these real in-game factions or is this just a wish-list?
I thought the bikers went by another name by all the town's people?
craaab people, craaab peo-ple, we are craaaab people, craaaab people...
I wonder if killing gingers in this game will fill the void where i should have a soul...
All signs are currently pointing to success for this game. Keep the information coming GI!
I would befriend the jacovasaurs faction because they would kill everyone with thier annoyinness, but would definitely kill them after that
OMG WHAT ABOUT THE OLD PEOPLE!?!? YOU KNOW THEY WILL BE AN ENEMY, TRYING TO RUN YOU OVER AND WHATNOT.
crab people FTW WOOT ! ! !
I'm so excited for this!! Hope Al Gore & Manbearpig will be in it as well.
is it gunna be like fallout or mario? from screens ive seen it looks like its mario but the ability to move your character from the top of the screen to the bottom. i hope its more like fallout where i can go any where with my character in the same position on my screen.
That's more factions than I thought there would be.
