Lies of P is the breakout Gamescom hit

Lies of P, a Soulslike game based on the story of Pinocchio, is looking like the biggest breakout out of this year’s Gamescom. IGN tweeted a photo of what looks like the line to demo Lies of P at the German convention, with a crude sign made out of red masking tape that indicates a two-hour wait from that point forward. A group of people can be seen sitting before the two-hour-wait mark, one of them brilliantly sitting in a pop-up camping chair. Gamers are nothing if not resourceful.

It’s unclear if GamesRadar’s own Josh West waited in a two-hour long line for his Lies of P hands-on preview, but he did get to spend a chunk of time trying out the highly anticipated game. West writers that “lie Bloodborne, combat is aggressive and encourages forward momentum,” so expect Lies of P to be fairly punishing and intense. 

Lies of P stunned the Gamescom crowd with a gorgeous and freaky gameplay trailer showing off Bloodborne-like scenes, strategic dialogue choices, and Pinocchio’s arsenal of weapons, which includes melee items, an arm cannon, and some cool elemental/magical powers.

Lies of P is set to release in 2023 for Xbox Series X/S, PS5, and PC. It’s been confirmed as a Game Pass day one title, so a lot more people will get a chance to try out this Soulslike than the dozens waiting in line at Gamescom. 

Until Lies of P drops, here are some great games like Dark Souls to brush up on your Souls skills.
