South Park: The Stick of Truth has taken the most dangerous of paths to reach release. After the transition from publisher THQ to Ubisoft and the indefinite delay out of its initial March 2013 release window, some feared the game may become vaporware. Not so, as Ubisoft and Obsidian are likely very please to announce South Park: The Stick of Truth now has a new, final release date -- December 10, 2013.
Yaaay, everybody! What could be the best South Park game ever now has an official release date that doesn't stir up dread in our hearts. Okay, maybe a little bit still, but also lots of excitement and joy. That's not all, however, as we also have new details on South Park: The Stick of Truth's special edition, the Grand Wizard Edition. For $79.99, here's what the Grand Wizard Edition includes:
- South Park: The Stick of Truth game on either Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 or PC
- Grand Wizard Cartman figure from Kidrobot - A 6" replica figure of Grand Wizard Cartman equipped with his Stick of Authority.
- Kingdom of South Park map - South Park fully mapped for the very first time.
- The Stick of Truth "Ultimate Fellowship" pack - Includes four additional DLC classes for the "New Kid," the Necromancer Sorcerer who does bonus fire damage, the Ranger Elf that does bonus weapon damage, the Rogue Assassin that gets bonus gold, and the Holy Defender who has bonus defenses.
All of the above was announced in celebration of the beginning of the latest South Park season, which airs tonight. I believe it's the seventeenth season of the show? Witch is as awesome as it is terrifying. I may need to watch just to have something to hold me over until December.
South Park: The Stick of Truth will be launching on December 10, 2013 on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. It has come. It is now. It is forever. I have no idea what I'm saying, okay, I'm just pretty excited to play the damn thing.
