Lies of P, the upcoming Soulslike RPG inspired by Bloodborne and the Pinocchio fairy tale, has received an official release month of August 2023 for consoles and PC. The news was revealed in a new cinematic trailer for the game, showing off more of its story, world and enemies. A concrete release date has not been mentioned yet, but players are able to wishlist the game right now.
Lies of P puts a darker gothic spin on the classic tale of Pinocchio. Players assume the role of the character as he explores a world brought to ruin by vicious mechanical creations. A lot has been borrowed from From Software’s Souls franchise including stamina management, creative enemies and boss fights, challenging gameplay and eye-catching locations.
