A new four-minute trailer filled with cinematics and in-game footage snippets was shown off at Gamescom Opening Night Live yesterday (August 23), which also confirmed that the game is set for some time in 2023.
Check out the game’s new trailer below.
When Lies Of P was first noticed, many compared its footage and visuals to Bloodborne, and whilst the studio behind the game is flattered, it made it clear this wasn’t an intentional choice.
Lead producer Ji-won Choi said: “Though we’re greatly honoured that many players felt the ‘Bloodborne vibe’ through our trailer release, it definitely wasn’t intentional. Still, Bloodborne and other soulslike titles are certainly inspirational, and almost everyone in our team is a hardcore soulslike fan.”
In Lies Of P protagonist Pinocchi must navigate the city of Krat with his mechanical arm and the gadgets therein. There’s a cannon, flamethrower and grappling hook on offer. Over on the Steam page, Lies Of P says that players will control Pinocchio to look for Mr. Geppetto, whilst the city will be “overwhelmed by madness and bloodlust.”
Elsewhere at Gamescom, Dead Island 2 has been re-revealed alongside a 2023 release date, whilst the release date of Gotham Knights has been brought forward a few days alongside a new villain-focused trailer for the game. Sony even announced the DualSense Edge, a new PS5 controller that’s highly customisable.
