Last month, we finally got the official unveiling of the next South Park video game. South Park: Snow Day is on the way, offering a 3D take on the mountain town and its many characters. At the time, we learned the game was due to release in March, but now a proper, finalised release date has been put in place.
South Park: Snow Day is a collaborative effort between small California-based studio, Question Games, and THQ Nordic. While previous popular South Park titles were single-player turn-based RPGs, this time around we are getting a co-op shooter of sorts, themed around the kids in South Park enjoying a Snow Day, just as the title suggests.
In keeping with the South Park RPGs, players will be taking on the role of the ‘New Kid’ in town, interacting with various established characters from the show. In squads of four, players will traverse through levels using melee and ranged combat abilities to save the town from some imaginary form of destruction. The game will take on more of a fantasy setting, like The Stick of Truth.
The game will be available for PC, Xbox Series X/S, PS5 and Nintendo Switch, starting on the 26th of March 2024. The game will be priced at £24.99 for the standard edition, but a more expensive Deluxe and Collectors Edition are also on the way.
