South Park: The Stick Of Truth Announced

The funniest adult cartoon of our time will soon be making a return to a console near you, taking players on an epic journey through Colorado, on a quest to become….cool.

South Park: The Stick of Truth was unveiled at Microsoft’s E3 Briefing by none other than series creators, Trey Parker and Matt Stone. We’ve since received some details outlining what we can expect from this upcoming title, so here they are:

The Storyline

You will begin as the new kid in town facing a harrowing challenge: making friends. As you start your quest the children of South Park are embroiled in a city-wide, live-action-role-playing game, casting imaginary spells and swinging fake swords. Over time the simple children’s game escalates into a battle of good and evil that threatens to consume the world.

You will arm yourself with weapons of legend to defeat Crabpeople, Underpants Gnomes, Hippies and other forces of evil. Discover the lost Stick of Truth and earn your place at the side of Stan, Kyle, Cartman and Kenny as their new friend. Succeed, and you shall be South Park’s savior, cementing your social status in South Park Elementary. Fail, and you will forever be known… as a loser.
