South Park: The Stick of Truth release date, DLC, trailer

Pre-order incentives and exclusive DLC announced

Here's a new trailer for South Park: The Stick of Truth - the PS3 and Xbox 360 RPG coming next year.

This is the footage Microsoft rolled during its press conference, which concluded moments ago.

"From the perilous battlefields of the fourth-grade playground, a young hero will rise, destined to be South Park's savior. From the creators of South Park, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, comes an epic quest to become... cool," says the PR.

The game will launch on March 5, and THQ is offering DLC as a pre-order incentive. The 'Good Times with Weapons Pack' adds new weapons and costumes apparently "based on one of the most popular South Park episodes of all time".


The pack includes the 'Bulrog Chicken Attack', which turns your enemies into chickens, 'Cartman's Kick-Ass Sai', and a Samurai Costume.

Xbox owners will also get a bunch of exclusive treats. Xbox pre-orders get 'The Mysterion Superhero Pack', which includes a Superhero Costume, Mysterion Special Attack, and the Dagger of Cthulhu.

Also, three standalone episodes will be released as DLC on Xbox on a timed exclusive basis, "featuring their own stories, taking you to places in South Park you've never been before".
