A long interview granted to the Prankster 101 portal by the director of Round 8 Studios reveals that Lies of P will last around 30 hours for the average user. About double in case you want to do a run devoted to completeness. The game of Neowiz and Round8, presented in recent months, will put us in the shoes of a very aggressive version of Pinocchio. The story written by Carlo Collodi is adapted to the videogame world and in particular – at least apparently – to the Souls-Like category. Impossible not to think of Bloodborne looking at the images proposed by Neowiz over the last few months.
Choi Ji-Won speaks from the pages of Prankster. The director has revealed some interesting details, other information was already known. For example, we find that the game has been in development for 2 years and that, according to the forecasts, it should arrive during the summer of 2023. “If you do the math, it will be about 3 years of development,” says Choi Ji-Won of Round8 Studio.
At the first images of Lies of P, a little for everyone (including us) the comparison with Bloodborne was immediately taken. Although Lies of P can also be registered in the register of titles in the souls-like manner, the director is keen to point out some differences. “The setting is not at all ‘Victorian’ as many people think,” says Ji-Won. In this regard, he also offers us some clues: “Here we are in France, during the Belle Epoque, so at the beginning of the 19th century. These are completely different premises “.
The game does not yet have a precise release date. It is expected for a generic 2023 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows, Xbox Series X / S and PlayStation 5. An interesting novelty that came to light at the Gamescom in Cologne, will arrive on Game Pass starting from day-one.
