Lies of P is now available on Game Pass only and small a little earlier than originally planned.
Game Pass was supposed to be the first release tomorrow, but Xbox VP of Game Marketing Aaron Greenberg confirmed in a post on X/Twitter a few hours ago that it’s now available on the service.

However, the release was a bit confusing. The release date was largely marketed as September 19th, but it hit Xbox and Steam this morning. However, the PlayStation version is still scheduled for tomorrow (or rather midnight tonight).

Of course, a lot of people have already gotten their hands on Lies of P, with those who ordered the Deluxe Edition gaining access on September 15th. Basically, maybe it was the real lie all along.
Lies of P is a dark take on Pinocchio where the player takes on the role of ‘P, a puppet created by Geppetto, in the beleaguered city of Krat, where you must navigate a web of lies and secrets and fight deadly puppets.
IGN gave the game an 8/10 with Travis Northup writes in his review that it “may not branch out particularly far from its soul-like inspiration, but as a puppet controlled by a skilled puppeteer, it plays the part exceptionally well in a wonderfully dark world of fantasy”.
