There are a variety of weapons to use as an adult spade curve a stalks e clubs. Pinocchio, to make matters worse, also boasts a mechanical arm that uses various tools such as a grappling hook and a flamethrower. Reactivity-based counterattacks will also play their part as accurate timing will allow them to destroy hordes of angry automatons.

It is really impossible not to notice from the first moments of the game the references to the atmosphere of Bloodborne (even if in this title, the starting point in terms of setting seems to be a sort of Belle Epoque oscura and distorted). Lies of P is scheduled for release on 2023 per PS5, Xbox Series X/S e PC. He will receive more details at G-STAR 2021 which takes place from 17 to 21 November.
