South Park: The Stick of Truth, Obsidian Entertainment's role-playing game based on the long-running television series, does not require Ubisoft's Uplay service to run, the developer revealed on Twitter.
Responding to a fan's question if Uplay will be requirement to play the Steam version of South Park: The Stick of Truth, Obsidian confirmed that Uplay is not an implemented feature. The developer went on to state that players will not have the option of using the Uplay service with game as it "was not integrated at all" into the title.
Ubisoft launched the Uplay platform for PC in 2012 and rolled out Uplay 4.0 to PC last October. The update introduced Twitch streaming services, an "improved download manager" that allows for progressive game downloads and auto-patching, along with a new social features. Uplay is also available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One next-gen consoles.
Pushed back from a revised launch date of Dec. 10, South Park: The Stick of Truth is slated to launch in North America on March 4, 2014 on PlayStation 3, Windows PC and Xbox 360.
