For years, it seemed impossible to create a soulslike game capable of rivaling From Software’s titles. Not without reason. The excellence achieved by the Japanese studio in defining and shaping the genre made all its imitators appear to be just that: imitators. It didn’t feel like anyone was bringing something new to the table or doing their own thing. At least, until Neowiz Games came along to shake things up.
Lies of P has been a sales success, receiving notable acclaim from critics, and it doesn’t seem like the buzz will die down anytime soon. This is according to the game’s director, Ji Won Choi, in a video where he discussed the franchise’s future.
The most important points revealed are that, due to its success, we can expect Lies of P to have a sequel at some point in the future. Although no specific release date was given, he mentioned that they are already working on it. Additionally, he confirmed that they are simultaneously working on a new balance patch and a DLC for Lies of P, about which he could provide a bit more information.
Regarding the balance patch, he has mentioned that it is expected to arrive during this month of November, and they have focused on listening to player feedback. They will continue refining the difficulty of the early moments of the game, adjusting the difficulty of some enemies, and unlocking certain abilities for players to start with. As for the DLC, Choi has shared two images, featuring a large water turbine and two stranded ships, which will be part of the DLC content.
Lies of P was released on September 14th and has sold around one million copies in just a month. It is available on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X, and Game Pass.
