You’ve trudged through the haunting city of Krat, battled terrifying puppets, and maybe told a few fibs to get more human-like. If you’ve been wondering what’s next for this action-packed RPG, we’ve got some news for you. Game director Jiwon Choi has filled us in on what’s coming down the pipeline, and there’s a lot to unpack.
First off, Lies of P hit the ground running. The game sold more than a million copies in just a month, and the team couldn’t be more grateful. Launched on September 19, this game has taken many by storm, and the developers want to keep that momentum going. If you missed Choi’s video update, it’s worth watching.
This November, prepare yourself for a hefty balance patch. You know those early-game challenges that made you want to throw your controller? The team is working on it. The upcoming patch is set to make things a bit more reasonable for both weapons and characters. But don’t worry, it won’t remove the teeth-gritting difficulty that die-hard fans love. Oh, and get this: they’re throwing in a new outfit, plus a feature that lets you put on glasses and hats separately. It’s like a thank-you note but in the form of virtual fashion.
As if that wasn’t enough, Choi gave a quick look at some sketches for the game’s first DLC. While he didn’t give away too much, he did leave a lot to the imagination. Sure, we all want the details now, but it looks like we’ll have to wait a bit longer for the full story.
The game already offers a rich world, influenced by the story of Pinocchio and set against the bleak backdrop of Krat. If you haven’t played yet, you take on the role of a puppet trying to find its creator, Geppetto, while making life and death decisions. The twist? The more lies you tell, the more human you become. A word to the wise: trust is hard to come by in this game.
If you haven’t picked up Lies of P yet, there are plenty of ways to do it. It’s up for grabs on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. You can also find it on Mac, and it’s even part of the Xbox Game Pass. Watch for the complete patch notes and more info on the DLC, as they’re expected to drop soon.
