NEOWIZ’S Lies of P, a Souls-like action-RPG set in a Belle Époque-style city, is due for release next month and continues to look promising. Extensive new gameplay is available, courtesy of IGN at Gamescom, with director Jiwon Choi and translator Jiyoon Shin discussing some of the new weapons.
Two weapons are shown – the first is the Shichishitō or Seven-Branched Sword, a heavy weapon. It is a two-handed sword that causes you to roll and attack more slowly. However, it can pulse with electricity to do more damage and has a special movement that creates a wave of energy. The second weapon is, well, a giant wrench. Hey, if it works, it works.
The new boss, King of Puppets, is a huge enemy with a long range. It can fire projectiles that land and explode over time, and it has a large area of effect-blast. Even if you are overwhelmed, it is possible to summon NPCs to help (unfortunately no co-op).
Lies of P will be released on September 19 for Xbox Series X/S, PS5, PC, Xbox One and PS4.
