Developer Round 8 Studio has released a new trailer for upcoming soulslike Lies of P, showing off gameplay and revealing more of the story.
Adapted from the classic tale of Pinocchio, but with a dark twist (for what was already a dark story), Lies of P puts you in the shoes of puppet mechanoid Pinocchio. You'll wind your way through the streets of a ruined city, crafting weapons from materials found in the world, and interacting with the few people to do remain there.
Lies of P promises profound narrative choices, and the more lies you tell, the more human Pinocchio becomes, which brings its own advantages and disadvantages. Judging from the trailer, it looks like your lies might even bring a gang of hunters after you. The game will also feature “deeply customizable character progression”, as you'd expect from an action-RPG such as this.
It all looks very promising, and you can check out the gameplay trailer for yourself down below. Lies of P is due to launch on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC in 2023, and will be a day one launch on Xbox Game Pass.
