With South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone showing off South Park: The Stick of Truth on Microsoft's E3 stage, THQ has dropped a whole raft of new information about the game on Xbox 360, including timed exclusivity on DLC and the good old 'Better With Kinect' gubbins. There's also a March release date and some pre-order DLC too.
First of all, here's details for the pre-order DLC packs that are up for grabs, including one that's exclusively available on Xbox 360:
- Good Times With Weapons Pack - THQ is happy to offer exclusive weapons and costumes when you preorder South Park: The Stick of Truth. The Good Times With Weapons Pack, based on one of the most popular South Park episodes of all time, includes destructive items no fourth-grade martial artist should be without. With the Bulrog Chicken Attack, summon the devastating ninja powers of Bulrog and turn your feeble enemies into chickens! BLAM! "Nya-nya-nya-nya-na naa! Now you are a chicken!" With Cartman's Kick-Ass Sai, the ultimate weapon of destruction, penetrate even the most evil of villains! Harness the fiery sting of the Sai to slash and cut your way through South Park! Rounding out the Good Times With Weapons Pack is the Samurai Costume. Show off your brute muscle with this bad-ass getup, complete with samurai headgear, a super-sweet cape, and the toughest cardboard armour this side of Takagawa. Suit up, and prepare to unleash the ultimate pwnage!
- Mysterion Superhero Pack (Xbox 360 Exclusive) - THQ and Microsoft are proud to announce Xbox 360 exclusive pre-order items for South Park: The Stick of Truth: The Mysterion Superhero Pack. With your Superhero Costume, suit-up as the next South Park superhero! It's the perfect disguise for fighting your mortal enemies and keeping South Park safe! Also, harness the elusive power of Mysterion with the Mysterion Special Attack! South Park's protector unleashes a deadly combination of stealth and firepower - your enemies won't know what hit them! Finally, slash the darkness with the diabolical switchblade, the Dagger of Cthulhu! It's the same weapon used to stab and kill Mysterion in the twisted classic episode "Mysterion Rises." And now... the fate of the Cult of Cthulhu lies in your hands!
The first three DLC packs for South Park: The Stick of Truth will also be heading to Xbox 360 as timed exclusives, and each pack will offer a standalone adventure with its own story, taking you to never-before-seen parts of South Park.
Furthermore, the game's Kinect functionality will enable you to call Cartman a "fat ass", and he'll respond. You'll also be able to taunt enemies using Kinect voice commands.
South Park: The Stick of Truth is due to launch on March 5th, 2013. Check out three new screenshots and the trailer below.
