South Park: The Stick of Truth won't be toned down

Just in case you were worried that South Park's legendary scatological satire would be watered down in its transition to playable form for upcoming RPG The Stick of Truth, rest assured that the game is shaping up to be every bit as offensive and filthy as you might expect.

The Achievements for the Xbox version of the game have found their way online, and suggest a game that will certainly live up to the show.

Eight of the Achievements can be unlocked by - how to put this? - breaking wind on enemies, animals and other characters. There's one for killing enemies with Cartman's backside, and also one for -how to put this again? - soiling your underpants during a boss battle. There's even one for joining the Ku Klux Klan. Some are just plain bizarre, such as the one awarded for befriending Crab People and Underpants Gnomes.

One thing is clear, it won't be a game to play with your Gran, which makes sense given that the script for the game was written by South Park creators Matt Parker and Trey Stone. "We really didn't have any big reason we'd have to do it, except that we're both just huge gamers," Stone told GameInformer last year. "Especially when the show first came out, there were video games that we weren't super proud of and we were always like 'Well, if we ever got the chance to spend the time and do it right and do it big, this is sort of what this is all about.'"

South Park: The Stick of Truth is out for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC on March 7th.
