South Park: Snow Day is a new 3D co-op game being developed by Question Games. While the past two South Park video games were developed by Ubisoft and featured RPG gameplay, South Park: Snow Day is a 3D co-op action adventure where players take on battle against other South Park kids in a neighbourhood showdown.
The game follows the traditional fantasy elements from South Park and sees the cast dressed up similarly to how they were in Stick of Truth and Fractured But Whole. While the trailer does showcase gameplay for the first time, it doesn’t really do a good job of explaining how the whole thing will work. Cartman says the game is playable with three friends and can be played alone or with random people.
The video shows the kids punching and kicking each other, hitting each other with swords and shooting arrows around. However, there’s no real explanation of how these mechanics work, whether you’ll be able to level up your kid and if there are different roles you can take on.
If anything, the game looks like a copy-and-paste co-op brawler skinned with South Park. Whether or not this is enough is still the question. There’s currently no set release date for South Park: Snow Day. The game is expected to launch sometime in March for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PC and Switch.
Hey, New Kid! Grab up to three friends, in this four-player co-op, and battle your way through the snow-piled town of South Park on a quest to save the world and enjoy a day without school. Equip and upgrade devastating melee and ranged weapons. Deploy special abilities and powers that will bring hordes of enemies and epic bosses to their knees.
