Lies of P launched back in September to both critical and fan acclaim – we gave it one of our highest scores of the year and you can read about why in Game Informer’s Lies of P review. After a September patch that included various changes to make the Soulslike action RPG easier, game director Jiwon Choi has released a Director’s Letter to confirm plans for a Lies of P sequel, tease DLC for the game with two new images, and more.
Lies Of P Sequel Confirmed
Choi began the video thanking players for helping the game sell 1 million copies in less than two months after release. He then sneakily drops a line confirming the Pinocchio-inspired Soulslike is getting a sequel.
“Our highest priority is developing the DLC and working on the sequel,” Choi says in the Director’s Letter. “The dev team is putting in significant effort, brainstorming and exploring different aspects of the projects.”
That’s all Choi shares about the sequel but it’s nice to hear the team is working on one, and if you’ve beaten Lies of P and watched its post-credits scene, you can likely guess where it’s headed. That is, unless that’s planned for DLC…
Lies of P DLC Teased
And speaking of DLC, Choi also shared two new images from Lies of P’s in-development DLC. The first image appears to be some kind of laboratory, perhaps a place where people in Krat experimented on humans to create the monsters seen in the latter half of Lies of P. The second image is vastly different, showing Pinocchio on a ship on the water. It’s very Pirate-y, and some in-image clues suggest that perhaps this DLC will be taking us to Neverland to help (or fight) Captain Hook, Peter Pan, and others. But that’s pure speculation; check them out for yourself below and let us know what you think!
“Even after the launch, our commitment remains unwavering in providing players with a compelling and unforgettable story,” Choi says. “To do so, we are fully dedicating ourselves to the development of the DLC. [I] love seeing players speculating and discussing various aspects as they wait for the DLC. Every time we encounter remarkably inventive and creative hypotheses. My heart is pounding and I feel warmth. The anticipation is truly exhilarating.”
Upcoming Lies Of P Patch Details
Elsewhere in the Director’s Letter, Choi shared some details about an upcoming patch coming to Lies of P that should make the game more approachable. Here’s a look at the Lies of P patch details and other future plans:
- The team will tweak the performance of the blade and handle combinations available in the game
- The studio will make the Shovel Puppet at Venigni Works easier to defeat
- Rising Dodge will be a default skill, and Polendia will set two more additional quartz in his first stage of the shop to help you upgrade the P-Organ quicker
- An Alidoro mask and costume will be added to the game and free for all players
- An extra cosmetic facial slot will be added so that players can wear hats and glasses
- New wearables including the Alchemist’s Hat and additional glasses will be added to the game
- The team is preparing the release of the game’s soundtrack, which will encompass almost every song and include more than 60 tracks
Choi says the team is still discussing patch release plans, but that it’s aiming for this month.
And that’s everything we learned in this Lies of P Director’s Letter.
