Bloodborne was nice, nevertheless it did not have any lightning gorilla robocops. This is an issue the upcoming Lies of P hopes to repair, as revealed in a brand new gameplay trailer designed to indicate off how good it appears on a Radeon RX 7900 XTX. I’ll possible by no means personal a Radeon RX 7900 XTX, nevertheless it’s trying more and more possible that I’ll purchase Lies of P.
It’s a Soulslike that plonks you into an alternate Victorian London the place folks received actual good at inventing creepy automata. You play as the massive P himself, Pinocchio.
We’ve seen clips of P’s fight earlier than, however I a lot choose getting to observe fights play out slightly than being discombobulated by fast jumps between plenty of totally different ones, like within the Gamescom trailer from final August. This offers a a lot better concept of the pacing, with customary enemies that shamble round whilst you pirouette between them doing fancy sword slashes.
The lightning gorilla robocop doesn’t shamble; it stampedes. The approach it slams the participant round would make the Hulk proud, and I just like the slight stuttering imposed by its clockwork chassis. A boss worthy of the extraordinarily Soulsy double-handed door opening that precedes the encounter, certainly.
As properly as snazzy fight, publishers Neowiz have teased that the extra lies you inform to NPCs “the extra human gamers turn into, with all the benefits and downsides it entails.”
We’ll discover out what which means when Lies of P comes out sooner or later this 12 months. In the meantime, you’ll be able to peek at its Steam page.
