Lies of P publisher Neowiz has announced a new game update, teased the game’s first DLC, and confirmed plans to release a sequel.
Lies of P sold one million copies in less than a month after Round8 Studio’s well-received soulslike launched on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and S, PC via Steam, and Mac via the Mac App Store on September 18. It reimagines the classic fairy tale of Pinocchio in Bloodborne style gameplay.
IGN’s Lies of P review returned an 8/10: “Lies of P might not branch out particularly far from its soulslike inspiration, but it plays the part extremely well.” Lies of P has a “very positive” user review rating on Steam too.
An upcoming patch is expected this month, which is set to bring “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. As part of this, players will get the Rising Dodge ability as a default skill, eliminating the need to unlock it.
Players will also get a new outfit (Alidoro’s costume and mask), along with a new feature to equip glasses and hats separately “for even greater freedom in character customization”.
In a director’s letter video, game director Jiwon Choi showed off two sketches, below, that tease a small portion of the content that will be available in the first DLC. More information as well as patch notes will be available soon.
Spoilers of Lies of P are ahead.
Lies of P includes a clear hint at either upcoming DLC or a sequel. A post-credits scene shows the ruby shoes worn by Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz. An unnamed character says: “When I return, I will find her. For sure. Another key of ours. Dorothy.”
In the video, Choi confirmed plans for a Lies of P sequel. “Our highest priority is developing the DLC and working on our sequel,” Choi said. “The dev team is putting in significant effort, brainstorming and exploring different aspects of the projects.”
