Everything you need to know about Lies of P

Developed by Round8 Studio and published by Korean outfit NEOWIZ, Lies of P is an atmospheric Soulslike that pulls on both the design bedrock of FROM Software’s legendary series and also Carlo Collodi’s beloved fairytale, Pinoochio. An enticing mix of influences to say the least, this game blends in a beguiling Belle Époque setting and visual aesthetic to make it stand out among its genre peers, sending players off into a darkly violent odyssey through Krat, a city rife with plague.

Be sure to keep this guide in your favourites as we cover everything you need to know about Lies of P including the release date, gameplay details, latest trailer, PC specifications, early access information and more.

Lies Of P Release Date

The Lies of P release date has officially been confirmed as September 19, 2023. It is set to have a full release on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series S/X consoles and PC via Steam. There is currently no release date for Lies of P on the Epic Games store. Additionally, Lies of P has not been confirmed for a Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 or Xbox One release as of this writing. 

Lies Of P Gameplay

As we’ve already established, Lies of P is a Soulslike and with that descriptor comes a number of expected game elements that NEOWIZ’s latest effort embraces duly. With the action taking place from a third-person perspective, Lies of P follows in the footsteps of its genre stablemates by placing a premium on precise and punishing melee combat, where split-second frame timing is the difference between landing an attack on a boss and being one-shotted into controller-squeezing oblivion.  

Familiar also is the manner in which checkpoints work. Stargazers, which function the same way as Bonfires do in FROM Software’s Dark Souls games, not only replenish Pulse Cells (Lies of P’s version of trusty restorative Estus Flask) and allow you to spend ‘ergo’ (think Souls from the Dark Souls games) to level up your character, but so too do they resurrect all defeated enemies, minus bosses, on the map, allowing you to grind your way to glory should you so choose. So far, so Dark Souls then.

Lies of P however, leverages its unique narrative setting to introduce an additional gameplay element that hasn’t really been seen in other Soulslikes. With the titular hero of the game being a puppet of sorts, players can craft special weapons and augmentations that can be hooked into their frame, providing a surprising amount of creative latitude when it comes to battle configurations to say the least.

Lies Of P Story

A somewhat off-kelter retelling of the story of Pinocchio (and that’s putting it mildly), Lies of P begins with players taking control of a masterwork puppet that has been crafted by expert puppet maker Geppetto after a calamity has befallen the city of Krat. Formerly a metropolis filled with art, culture and kindness, Lies of P has players taking the titular puppet through the depths of Krat itself, carving a vengeful and bloody path through the nefarious figures and foes that stand between them and a shocking truth that will upend their very existence. 

Is There Multiplayer?

Quite unlike other Soulslike titles such as Dark Souls, Elden Ring and the seminal Bloodborne, Lies of P does not support multiplayer at all at launch. This means that the usual cooperative shenanigans where you would normally invite another player into your game – as has traditionally been the case in other Soulslike – simply isn’t an option. Additionally, Lies of P will not provide any adversarial multiplayer modes at launch either. 

Lies Of P Demo

Yes, you can! There is a free demo that is available on PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S platforms. The free demo is available on the Xbox Marketplace for Xbox Series X/S gamers, while PlayStation 5 folks can nab the demo from the PlayStation Store. Finally, PC owners can also dabble their toes in Lies of P’s myriad delights by grabbing the free demo from the official Steam page for the game. 

Early Access & Preorder Bonuses

The main Lies of P preorder bonus that is currently available to players is the Puppet’s Clothes and Mischievous Puppet’s Parade Hat. Both items will be provided for free to anyone who preorders the standard version. For folks with deeper pockets however, there is also a Deluxe edition which not only includes additional cosmetic DLC, a hardcover art book, original soundtrack and a fancy limited edition steelbook case, but also 72-hour early access to the game beginning on September 16, 2023. 

Where Can I Watch The Latest Trailer?

The latest trailer for Lies of P is available to watch right now and you can catch it above. Courtesy of this year’s Summer Games Fest, the latest trailer for the game is all about setting the scene for this most unusual of Pinnochio adaptations, showcasing an impressive array of beautifully realised, ruined industrial environments alongside glimpses at its scintillating and acrobatic combat. 

PC Specifications

With sprawling and highly detailed dark industrial worlds that unfurl before the player, all of which is ably supported by some great character designs and extravagant bosses, Lies of P is certainly a treat for the eyes.
