Neowiz has been building up hype for their new souls-like for weeks now with all sorts of trailers and gameplay videos. Just last week, we got a peek at the game’s unique “Weapon Assemble” system in a snazzy weapon showcase. Today, the devs are ready to reveal the exact timing of when Lies of P early access players and general release players can get into the game; they’ve also released a new Boss Fight Showcase gameplay video to show off some of the game’s intense boss fights.
Lies of P Release Timing:
Lies of P early access begins on September 15, 2023, at 8am PDT/11am EDT/11pm HKT for Xbox and Steam players. For PlayStation players, early access begins at 9pm PDT on September 15 and at 12am EDT/12am HKT on September 16.
General release players can get into the game starting at 8am PDT/11am EDT/11pm HKT on September 18 for Xbox and Steam Players. PlayStation players can access general release at 9pm PDT on September 18 and at 12am EDT/12am HKT on September 19.
Boss Fight Showcase Gameplay
The video is a little over six minutes long, and you can check it out below:
Here are a few things we noticed about the boss fights included in this showcase:
- Of Machines and Men – The bosses in this gameplay keep very true to the game’s Victorian-steampunk-meets-eldritch-horror aesthetic. Several of the bosses were anthropomorphic robots, and those that weren’t were tied up with various machinery that appeared to augment their abilities.
- Slow Down, Speed Up – As is common with Souls-like games, there’s a wide range of movement among the bosses shown here. Some, like the grotesque flesh monsters we saw, move with slow, lurching attacks, while others, like the robed woman and the tree-like monstrosity, aim to keep players on their toes with quick stabs and slashes.
- Bosses of All Sizes – While some of the enemies that the player fights in this video don’t appear to be much larger than the player, there are a few bosses that absolutely tower over them. In particular, the last boss shown off is a gigantic four-armed robot that stands nearly half the height of the massive burning theater that the fight takes place in.
- Need a Hand? – In the last boss fight, we also see a companion fighting side-by-side with the player. This companion is a dark figure with bright white hair and a speedy scythe, and it looks like they’ll be able to help deal damage to the boss and draw its attention mid-fight.
