[Update]: Lies of P has now arrived, and I'm happy to say that it's ended up being quite good!

In a bit of a departure from the usual noble knights and gloomy wanderers, the upcoming Souls-like action-RPG Lies of P will have you take control of none other than Pinocchio in order to rid the world of all sorts of metal monstrosities and murderous mutants. Along the way you'll be able to combine your weapons in a multitude of different ways in order to create entirely new ones, as well as change parts of your own body to gain new combat and exploration abilities.

Most interestingly of all, Lies of P will have a plethora of interconnected procedural quests that will play out differently depending on how and whether you lie. How exactly will this work in gameplay terms, I have absolutely no idea, but I'm certainly intrigued to see where all of this goes given how heavily Lies of P is leaning into the whole Pinocchio thing.

Speaking of gameplay, you can get a little bit of a sneak peek at what Lies of P has to offer, as well as what its visuals and storytelling are like, through the preview below. Have a gander, it's a rather interesting one:

If all of that looks like exactly the kind of weirdness you'd love to dive into, you'll be happy to hear that you won't have to wait all that long as Lies of P will be launching at some point in 2023 for PC, PlayStation and Xbox. Once we get an actual release date, I'll make sure to let you know.

Until then, you can learn more about Lies of P by heading over to the official website. Enjoy!
