At the conference, it was announced that the downloadable content for the game will come to Xbox Live first. The downloadable content comprises three downloadable episode packs: "standalone adventures featuring their own stories, taking you to places in South Park you've never seen before," says Microsoft.

Two preorder bonus sets were revealed alongside the conference: the Good Times With Weapons Pack, including the Samurai Costume, Cartman's Kick-Ass Sai, and the Bulrog Chicken Attack; and the Xbox-exclusive Mysterion Superhero Pack, which includes the Superhero Costume, Dagger of Cthulhu, and Mysterion Special Attack.

South Park: The Stick of Truth on the Xbox 360 will also feature Kinect functionality so you can taunt enemies and launch attacks with voice recognition. "Finally, for the first time in South Park history," says the press release, "you can call Cartman a 'fat ass,' and he'll respond."
