Ubisoft will unleash South Park: The Stick of Truth on Dec. 10 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
The role-playing game based on the long-running Comedy Central show will also get an $80 special edition called South Park: The Stick of Truth — Grand Wizard Edition. Yes, I do believe that is a KKK joke.
In the special edition, gamers will find a map of the Kingdom of South Park, a code for the Ultimate Fellowship content pack, and a Grand Wizard Kidrobot Cartman Figure. The map charts all of the interesting locations in the mystical version of South Park from the game. The Ultimate Fellowship unlocks additional characters.
Players who preorder the standard version of the game will also get the Ultimate Fellowship pack.
The Stick of Truth enables gamers to enter the world of South Park as themselves. They will join the cast of the show on an adventure to save Princess Kenny and the world. During the quest, players will fight against hippies and underpants gnomes while the game parodies pop culture, politics, and other video games.
Developer Obsidian Entertainment produced the game in association with South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, who wrote the title. It was originally under development at publisher THQ before Ubisoft purchased the rights.
