What do the universes of Lies of P and Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty have to do with one another? Fans of NEOWIZ will be getting the answer to that later this year, as the developer behind the former—a Pinocchio-inspired, Souls-like action game—has announced that it is teaming up with KOEI TECMO as part of a new and mysterious collaboration. More details about the collaboration won’t be revealed until September, but Lies of P will be available beginning that very same month, with PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Steam versions of the game scheduled to release on September 19. According to NEOWIZ, the demo for Lies of P, which remains available to download through Steam, surpassed 1 million downloads in just three days.
