New Lies Of P Update Includes Free Cosmetics, Fixes Bugs, And Makes The Game's Combat Easier

Lies of P launched back in September and turned out to be a Soulslike favorite amongst critics and fans alike this year – we gave it one of our highest scores of 2023 and you can read about why in Game Informer’s Lies of P review. To celebrate the game’s reception, director Jiwon Choi released a Director’s Letter video earlier this month to tease some images of Lies of P’s DLC and reveal details about an upcoming update. That update is now out and it includes free cosmetic items, some bug fixes, and balance changes that should make the game easier. 

Plus, alongside this update, developer Neowiz has officially released the Lies of P soundtrack; it’s available for purchase on Steam for $9.99 and hits digital music streaming platforms later today. 

Here’s what’s new in Update Version

New Features and Content

The following costume pieces have been added to Lies of P and can be found in the “Equipment” and “Bag” menu:

  • Alchemist’s Hat
  • Treasure Hunter’s Mask
  • Treasure Hunter’s Hunting Apparel
  • Illusory Emerald Glasses

There is a new category in the Costume menu; players can now equip the “Mask” and “Accessory” together in the Hair section of the Costume menu. Short grey hair has been added to the game and is available at Geppetto’s Tools after completing the game once. Plus, subtitle size adjustments have been added to Lies of P. 

Balance and Content Improvements

Today’s update adjusts the attack speed of some monsters to make their attacks more intuitive and increases the duration of stance breaks for some monsters. Plus, it adjusts the spawn locations of some monsters and traps to fit better with the flow of the game. And, as previously revealed in the recent Director’s Letter video, the P-Organ’s “Rising Dodge” ability is now a default ability. “Retain Guard Regain upon Pulse Cell use” has been added to the P-Organ to replace “Rising Dodge.” 

The following combat balance adjustments have been made as well

  • Increased the damage of some weapons.
  • Increased some weapons to trigger stance breaks to monsters more frequently.
  • Now relatively lighter Blades will gain more ‘Guard Regain’, while heavier Blades gain less ‘Guard Regain’.
  • Decreased the delay after an attack and the time to charge a ‘Charge Attack’ for some heavy handles.
  • Now some heavier handles will have a faster attack speed depending on the assembled blade.
  • Adjusted the ‘Destruction Damage’ inflicted to monsters by a ‘Perfect Guard’.
  • The weapon ‘Puppet’s Saber Blade’ will now have increased stats after enhancing.
  • Increased the movement distance while using the ‘Proof of Humanity’ weapon’s attack skill.
  • Increased the damage reduction rate while guarding the weapon ‘Etiquette’ but reduced the fable’s charge amount for a set period of time when attacking.
  • Enhanced the attack tracking mechanism after successfully performing the Fable Arts, ‘Guard Parry’.
  • Increased the damage buff of ‘Bell of Provocation’ to the player.
  • “The Attribute Status Ailments will now stack faster for the following Fable Arts:
  • – ‘Thunderstrike’
  • – ‘Flamestrike’
  • – ‘Acid Slash'”
  • Increased the damage of Fatal Attacks to better scale with the players stats.
  • Increased the attack radius and tracking mechanism of the Legion Arm, ‘Aegis III – Counter Charge’.
  • The pillars in the ‘Kill King’s Flame, Fuoco’s room will now only be destroyed by Fuoco’s Fury Attacks.

Two new items have been added to Polendina’s Shop: two more Quartz can be purchased during the early stages of the game. After expanding the shop for the first time, one additional Quartz can be purchased. After expanding the shop a third time, two additional Full Moonstone of the Covenant can be purchased.
