Trey Parker and Matt Stone came out on stage at the Microsoft Press Conference to talk about South Park: The Stick of Truth. Approached to make a game a few years ago, they said they were excited to make the game, but only if they could make it feel like you were in an episode of South Park. They’ve had to do a lot of work with it, though – one of the things they had to work out was an actual map of the world. Before, they could just cut to Kyle’s house, but now that you have to walk there, they have to know where it is.
All of your favorite characters are present, and now you are a character as well. You have to work hard to become cool with the South Park boys, get accepted by them, and become the savior. Maybe then you can wear the Baratheon crown and take out some teenage vampires, too.
South Park: The Stick of Truth will be released on March 5, 2013.
