Lies of P

Publishe Neowiz and developer Round8 Studio have announced Lies of P is getting a balancing patch sometime this month, news teased alongside the game’s first DLC.

Here’s a rundown on the update, the DLC teaser, and a video from the game’s director:

The video, hosted by Game Director Jiwon Choi, catches players up on the state of Lies of P since its official launch on Sept. 19 and what to expect from the game in the near future including a sneak peek at the first DLC as well as details on the release of the official game soundtrack, and more.

After thanking fans for helping Lies of P surpass one million units sold in the first month, Choi goes on to discuss the upcoming balance patch for the game. Expected to arrive in November, the update brings significant changes to weapon and character balance, as well as quality-of-life changes to ease the difficulty in the early stages of the game. To show the developers’ gratitude, players will also receive a new outfit, along with a new feature to equip glasses and hats separately for even greater freedom in character customization. As another treat for players, Choi provides a short preview of the upcoming game content for Lies of P through never-before-seen sketches that tease a small portion of the content that will be available in the first DLC. More information, including the complete patch notes and details on the new DLC, will be available soon.

Inspired by the familiar story of Pinocchio, Lies of P is an action Souls-like game set in the dark, Belle Époque-inspired city of Krat. Once a beautiful city, Krat has become a living nightmare as deadly puppets run amok and a plague sweeps the land. Play as a puppet who must fight his way through the city on his unrelenting journey to find Geppetto and finally become human. Lies of P presents an elegant world filled with tension, deep combat and character customization systems, and a gripping story with interesting narrative choices where the more lies told, the more human P becomes. Just remember: in a world filled with lies, no one can be trusted…

Lies of P is has been available since September 2023 for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Microsoft Windows (through Steam). Check out our review for the game!
