Ubisoft Announces New Free-to-Play RPG 'South Park: Phone Destroyer' Coming to iOS in 2017

by

During Ubisoft's E3 press conference this week, the company announced an all-new South Park game that's coming to iOS and Google Play sometime later in 2017, called South Park: Phone Destroyer (via TouchArcade). Developed by Ubisoft studio RedLynx in collaboration with South Park Digital Studios, the new app combines the real-time combat of the new series of console South Park games with trading card collecting and multiplayer battles.


Players will become the New Kid in South Park and assume a variety of roles, including cowboy, pirate, cyborg, angel, and more throughout a new single-player campaign. Although not many details have been shared yet, Ubisoft said that card collecting will impact combat, and eventually becomes the strategic key to competing and winning in the real-time multiplayer mode, which includes a ranking system.

In South Park: Phone Destroyer™, players once again assume the role of the New Kid and team up with South Park characters to play a new game with cowboys, pirates, cyborgs and even almighty gods. Take your gang on a new single-player adventure featuring an original story. Full of fun, explosive battles and irreverent humor, players build and upgrade an all-powerful team to master the true strength of the cards they acquire.

Upgrading and learning to use cards strategically is key to competing at the next level: the real-time Multiplayer mode. Player versus Player combat challenges players’ skill and knowledge needed to defeat opponents in order to rise up the global multiplayer ranks.

Ubisoft also noted that South Park: Phone Destroyer will stay true to the TV show with all of the humor, jokes, characters, and animation that fans expect. Show creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone will also provide the mobile game with authentic audio and voice work of all the classic South Park characters. The developer also confirmed that the game will be free to play.


South Park: Phone Destroyer is set to launch worldwide on the iOS App Store and on the Android Google Play store later this year.

"Ubisoft" + "Free-to-play" = Spamming $1 buttons to skip delay timers.

Another educational game for children everywhere.

Not all games need to be educational, especially not games not made for them.

Came here to say the same thing. Hilarious trolling or the fact that the Comedy Central writers have no control in what the production company decides to license their name & characters to.

Stick of Truth was a great game. I'll be picking up the sequel but I refuse to play freemium games.

I'll definitely download this and try it out.

I refuse to be nickle and dimed though. If it tries that kind of crap on me, I'll be dropping it quickly.

I was being sarcastic about the educational part.
But the truth is that kids are the ones who end up playing these kind of games the most, then they act erratically, do stupid things and people wonder why...

The reason why, frankly, is lazy excuse-making parents not doing their jobs, which is why the kids are playing the game at all despite the myriad tools provided for them to control what goes on in their homes and digital lives. In fact, didn't South Park directly address this way back in Season 1, Episode 6?
