The lights are on
With South Park: The Stick of Truth coming out in less than a month, Obsidian has dropped an extended video showing off a large chunk of gameplay. The video also shows off a wealth of new information, including your character’s parents, hints about his mysterious past, and the importance of The Stick of Truth.
The new video also shows how much of the RPG trappings work. The new kid picks a class between Fighter, Mage, Thief, or Jew (naturally), picks from an armory of weapons, and shows what could be a pretty robust inventory system. Combat is turn-based with an emphasis on timing, much like Paper Mario. Most importantly, the clip shows that Matt Stone and Trey Parker haven’t lost their comedic touch, with some great lines from Cartman.
South Park: The Stick of Truth comes out March 7th on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. For more on the game, check out our exclusive coverage by clicking the hub below.
