So now that we know the new Obsidian-developed South Park RPG will be heavy on swearing and dying children, it's obvious that the game won't be holding back on the violence. But that is to be expected in an RPG, right? It wouldn't be much of a role-playing game without some sort of combat.
Going by these first images, it's clear that, yes, our favourite South Park characters will be engaging in epic, long and violent battles, just like any other fourth grader.
How will our heroes counter the Gingers, ManBearPig's and Mecha-Streisand's of the world? With, weapons, of course! It's all so fun to play with weapons!
