Settle into South Park with 13 Minutes of Stick of Truth Gameplay

Posted by Finlay Milligan

"Welcome to the Kingdom of Kupa Keep"

Finally, after almost three years, South Park: The Stick of Truth is ready to be released. The game's not had the best time since its announcement back in 2011. Developer Obsidian – a veteran when it comes to RPGs – has faced design delays and redundancies, as well as original publisher THQ going bankrupt. And all of this had left us starting to wonder if the tie-in was just a really cruel fantasy.

However, following the news that the title has gone gold, we've now been treated to the first 13 minutes of gameplay. The introduction shows you – the new kid – settling into South Park and making friends, as well as learning about the conflict between the drow elves and humans for the all powerful artifact known as the Stick of Truth. It's remarkable how much the release looks like an actual episode of the legendary show, and, with the cartoon's usual razor sharp wit and edginess on display, no one is safe from Cartman's quips and insults. We're incredibly excited to explore the town with the boys, and can't wait to hone our swordplay and fart skills.

I don't really like South Park so this doesn't do much for me. I can 100 per cent appreciate how this is probably the best thing ever for fans, though.

@get2sammyb As a fan of both South Park and Trey and Matt in general, I am massively excited by this game. More so due to Obsidian developing and the fact that Trey and Matt have been involved in every aspect of the game. In recent previews are anything to go by, fans should be excited!

@Swiket "A white thief? Never heard of one, but interesting." I think they've absolutely nailed the writing in this.

I loved south park on the dreamcast but that was basically just a bunch of weird mini games, it was a lot of immature fun. I also loved the series but its relentless so I haven't bothered keeping up. I'll give it a go in the future but its not a title I would ever pay day 1 premium prices for, I definitely wanna play this soon though. Looks like they've put plenty of work in and I'm fairly impressed so far.

This looks incredible. I even stopped watching after 5 mins so I don't spoil the beginning.
