Normally, here at GamerTell, we don’t go in for those news stories that just showcase a bunch of new screenshots from a game. I mean, a few images typically isn’t that big of a deal. Yet, when I saw the new screenshots from South Park: The Stick of Truth from Gamescom 2013, I felt like these were something I had to show off. I’ve been watching South Park since the series began its run in 1997, have remained a fan off-and-on through the years, and each update Ubisoft releases makes South Park: The Stick of Truth look like the most incredible game inspired by a show ever.
The thing is, South Park: The Stick of Truth has such star power behind it. Obsidian Entertainment, famous for fantastic RPGs, has been developing it, and through these screenshots have proven capable of creating a game that looks like an episode of the series.
But enough talk. I’m going to show a few screenshots, while saying what seems to be going on in each, so you can be stunned by how good South Park: The Stick of Truth is looking too.
This is obviously a scene were the players are going through an area of South Park: The Stick of Truth, akin to a player in a normal RPG going into a bar to explore and talk to patrons.
This is an in-battle fight, between the party and some random kids.
This South Park: The Stick of Truth screenshot shows how the archery mechanic will work within the game, with the archer in the foreground, aiming a reticule to hit something in the background.
And this final screenshot looks like an image from a South Park: The Stick of Truth event scene.
As you can see, South Park: The Stick of Truth is looking very accurate in the stills. If I didn’t know better, I’d think they were screencaps from an upcoming episode or movie. Instead, they’re brief glimpses at a game we’ll hopefully be enjoying on our PS3s, Xbox 360s and Windows PCs later this year.
