Ubisoft have opened up pre-orders for South Park: The Stick of Truth on Steam, meaning that you can plonk down £39.99 for the game right now. Yes, £39.99. Much as it looks like it’ll be an entertaining title, for that price, you might think about waiting for reviews.
This also means that the official PC release date is, I guess, set at 6 March. I expect a delay within a week.
Pre-ordering nets you the Ultimate Fellowship content pack. This contains four costumes, each of which has a special ability: the Necromancer Sorcerer does bonus fire damage, the Rogue Assassin gets extra gold, the Ranger Elf does more weapon damage, and the Holy Defender has higher defences. Will this help much? Will South Park: The Stick of Truth be good? Will Ubisoft delay the PC version for Quality Reasons? I have no idea! Hopefully we’ll find out the answers to all of these before too long.
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing things about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning some really terrible ones, getting very angry at people in Dota 2, or playing basically anything that’s not a hardcore simulation or sports game. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
