Stick of Truth

It’s been a very long time since we’ve mentioned South Park: The Stick of Truth.  That was because there just wasn’t anything to talk about.  When THQ went under no one was really sure what was going to happen.  There was a release when it was announced that Ubisoft had picked up the game, but we were still left wondering what would happen.  This weekend I checked my old pre-orders status, I had paid the majority of this game off last October. 

Now we know that the game will be released on December 10th.  Pre-orders will be getting “The Ultimate Fellowship Pack”.  There are four costumes in the pack with each costume granting a different perk.  The Necromancer deals extra fire damage, the Ranger Elf deals extra weapon damage, the Rogue Assassin earns more gold, and the Holy Defender has bonus defenses.  Gamestop still lists the Good Time with Weapons pack and the Mysterion Superhero Pack on their website.  So it appears that pre-ordering there will get you a the Fellowship outfits, Bulrog and Mysterion summons, Cartman’s Kick-Ass Sais, a Samurai outfit, and a superhero outfit.  It’s possible other stores will have their own bonuses, but I haven’t seen anything yet.

There is also a Grand Wizard edition of the game coming out.  It will cost you an extra 20 dollars and comes with a 6 inch vinyl figure of Cartman dressed in his Grand Wizard costumer.  It also comes with a map that is described as being “Cartman’s hand drawn map of the South Park Kingdom.”  The set also comes with the Fellowship Pack.  I’m not sure the Kid Robot produced Cartman figure is enough for me to drop another 20 dollars on the game, but that might be because I’m still mad I never got the SDCC exclusive Mysterion figure.
