We have known for some time that the star of Disney fame, Pinocchio, would be entering the world of Soulsborne courtesy of the upcoming title from Round8 Studios, Lies of P. However, up until very recently, we were in the dark about when we would be able to get an opportunity to get on hands on this gritty take on Gepetto’s creation.
Well, wonder no longer. Courtesy of a trailer announcement at Geoff Keighley’s Summer Games Fest, we now know that Lies of P will be releasing on the 19th of September, and even better. You can get prepared for the release right now, because a Lies of P demo is now available on all participating platforms!
Within the trailer, we were treated to a reveal of a number of the hulking bosses that will inevitably stand in our way when the game drops in September, and we also got to see a number of cool mechanics and features we will have up our sleeve to deal with these brutes.
For those unaware of how Lies of P will play out, here is what we know. This game will have you play as Gepetto’s creation and travel through the world of Krat to uncover a web of lies, battle through a city where bloodlust reigns supreme. This game takes a lot of notes from FromSoftware titles like Dark Souls and Bloodborne, aiming to provide complex combat which will push players to their limits.
This game comes in the wake of Guillermo del Toro’s updation of the game character, and from what we can tell from the available trailers and other media, this game will be a game heavily inspired by the science fiction sub-genre of Steampunk.
We are very excited to see what the full game has to offer, and if you need us, we will be playing the demo for the foreseeable future.
Round8 Studios’ Lies of P will retail for £49.99 on release, is currently available to pre-order, and will be available for PS4/PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.
