Obsidian reveals South Park RPG

posted by Davies on - last edited - Viewed by 677 users
American games magazine Game Informer has the scoop on a new South Park game from Obsidian (the developer behind Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic II, Neverwinter Nights 2, Alpha Protocol, Fallout: New Vegas, and Dungeon Siege III). The image below was revealed along with the announcement.

The game is set for release late next year for the 360 and PS3, with the script and voices being provided by South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker (both of whom are massive gaming fans; as evidenced by the Guitar Hero, WoW, PSP and Wii episodes of South Park).

It all sounds very promising to me and should make up for the lazy cash-in South Park games from the past.

  • I'll be keeping my eye on this defintootly, Obsisian are full of great ideas so it's not gonna be half-hearted by any means. I wonder how much RPG you can get from South Park though...
  • At first I WTF'd at Kenny, but then I realized he's a big perv.

    No offense to the dudes who RP as chicks.
  • I forgot to mention that you play a new kid in South Park, so character creation seems likely. Looks like I'll be able to play as my forum avatar in-game. :eek:

    I'm expecting a plethora of gaming references in the game. South Park has always excelled in that regard...

    Well, the released picture suggests that we'll be entering a fantasy world (something akin to the Imagination Land episode), so I doubt there'll be a shortage of scenarios/quests. Also, take a closer look at that image...

    Man-Bear-Pig as an enemy NPC... I'm being super cereal! :D
  • Looks like there'll be a fight against CRAAAAAAAAAAAB PEOPLE. This pleases me.

    Also, while I'm sure Obsidian will handle the license well, I am kind of let down. I considered South Park to be one of the licenses Telltale would do good with.
  • I'd argue South Park would work best as an adventure game, (it makes SO MUCH SENSE. The boys often split up, they have their own plotlines, and there is always something that ties it all together and brings resolution), but an RPG by Obsidian will also do nicely.
    I shall keep my eye on this...

    At least this way we'll actually get some gameplay and not just one long South Park episode with QTEs... Zing!

    Also, being a RPG should allow for some interesting stats...

    "+7lbs to Cartman's ass."

    "250 gold added to Kyle's Jew purse."

    "Kenny is now adept at the 'Resurrection' skill."

    "Stan learns a new attack; 'Vomit-Projectile'."

    I had to pinch myself and check the calendar when I heard the news. It certainly does seem to be too bizarre/awesome to be true and yet here we are.:D
  • Welp. I'll be buying it.
  • You mean this isn't a joke?

    Jesus Christ, not ANOTHER Stupid South Park Game!
