South Park: Stick of Truth launching December 10

Obsidian Entertainment's RPG coming to consoles and PC this winter; $80 Grand Wizard Edition revealed.

South Park: The Stick of Truth will launch for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC on December 10, Ubisoft announced today. The Obsidian Entertainment-developed game was originally pegged to launch in March 2013 before being delayed.

Ubisoft also announced today that all consumers who preorder South Park: The Stick of Truth will receive the Ultimate Fellowship Pack. This includes four "exclusive" costumes that feature special abilities.

The Necromancer Sorcerer increases fire damage, while the Rogue Assassin outfit will yield extra gold. The Ranger Elf costume will allow players to deal extra weapon damage, while the Holy Defender outfit boosts player defense ratings.

A premium South Park: The Stick of Truth bundle was also announced today in the form of the Grand Wizard Edition. The $80 bundle includes the full game, a six-inch Grand Wizard Kidrobot Cartman Figure, a Kingdom of South Park Map, and the Ultimate Fellowship Pack mentioned above.

Ubisoft purchased South Park: The Stick of Truth for $3.2 million in January as part of the THQ bankruptcy auction.

Finally a release date! it's a preorder for me.

Since I don't like Cartman, I'll stick to standard edition.

Anybody think Grand WIzard edition is worth it?. Normally could care less about the little toys these game include on their special editions, but might be willing to shell out that extra $20 for two south park video game collectibles

FINALLY an actual release date. I can't wait.

Gotta say though, the Ultimate Fellowship Pack sounds a little..... normal. :-/

I cannot wait for this game. I just hope the humour is on par with the series, of course with trey and matt writing it I would not be surprised. The only game that ever made me laugh while I was playing it was leisure suit larry.

I have really been looking forward to it but I'm probably going to wait for reviews. This game could really go either way.

Should of been the Wizards Sleeve edition.

This can easily be great provided Obsidian can get their sh!t together and not botch it up. Been interested in this one awhile myself, and I have high hopes.

They bought this for $3.2 milion? Probably a decent investment there. Hopefully the game turns out to be amazing.

That would have been awesome if the one of the bonuses was the porno tape from the fellowship episode.

So it's 20 extra bucks for a Cartman figurine?

So glad it's coming out this year, hopefully the holiday release date doesn't hurt it with new consoles releasing right before. Anybody know if the 360 version is still getting exclusive missions/quests, or did that get scrapped once Ubisoft bought it?

i'd bet actual money that obsidian produces a game that's  worth your money over gta5.

I am getting this game, I have been waiting for a release date for a while now. I really want to play this game so bad and the funny thing is I have not been that into South Park for a long time.

@Hendrix247 I don't think it will be worth the money, but that's just my opinion. Just buying the game alone is enough for me to be happy.

@Aaronp2k I was going to 'Like' your comment, but then you had to go and mention Leisure Suit Larry.

@Vozlov haha, that is pretty good actually. they should have.

@G4m3r0uTL4wZ I know man. I can't keep up with a PS3 and a 3DS. And that doesn't include the dozens of games I would like to replay. Shit, I really want to get D3, but I don't know if I'll have enough time to fit it in. And that's not a game I would want to rush through.

@RicanV What is wrong with a current gen release?  South Park's graphic style isn't exactly maxing out the memory!

@RicanV  

you mean, devs/pubs who know how to use the tech available to them?  

or, are you laughing at the lack of creativity among devs/pubs?

@Pre_ordered_PS4  

i'm a huge obsidian fan and have never watched one episode.

this would be an amazing achievement, in my eyes, if the game rocks like kotor2 over 1 and newvegas and, absolutely, alpha.

@udubdawgz @RicanV Well I would hope that the reason they delayed it was to take advantage of dev kits for next gen consoles.

 i hoped that the popularity of video games would create better games and smarter gamers.

1/2.

idiots who allow walls of protection for the very industry that screws them over?

lol.
