New Lies Of P Update Includes Various Changes To Make The Game Easier

A new Lies of P update is live on PlayStation and Steam, and it includes several changes to bosses, standard enemies, items, and more that should make the game easier overall. The update is not yet live on Xbox platforms but publisher Neowiz says the Xbox versions of the update “have been submitted to Microsoft for testing and will be updated as soon as they are ready.” 

Lies of P hit PlayStation, Xbox, and PC earlier this month. It’s one of our favorite games of the year – read about why in Game Informer’s Lies of P review here – but it’s a tough soulslike that kicked our butts more than once. However, today’s Update should make the game easier overall so if you’ve taken a break from saving Krat with Pinocchio, now might be a good time to jump back in. 

Here’s what’s changed in Update in Lies of P:
