South Park: The Game’s fifth class revealed

Rogue, Paladin, Adventurer, Wizard, or... Jew?

South Park: The Game, Obsidian Entertainment’s upcoming RPG based on the hit Comedy Central series, will feature five playable classes. Earlier this month, four were revealed, a fifth said to be an unconventional class proposed by Cartman. Today, it’s been revealed.

Alongside Wizard, Paladin, Adventurer, and Rogue, you’ll also have the option to play as the Jew class.

Fans of the series should no doubt appreciate the game’s ‘no holds barred’ direction.

“Each one of these classes will flavor how you approach combat,” lead designer Matt MacLean told Game Informer. “And the Jew is going to sort of our Paladin/Monk type character.

“The current design for him is that he’s a high-risk/high-reward character. The closer you get to death, the more powerful his abilities become. So, your strongest when you’re at one hit point but you’re also just about to die.”

A 6 minute video interview with MacLean can be seen at Game Informer. It also features a few gameplay screenshots, such as the one attached right of this article.
