Lies of P is now available on Game Pass just a year ago tiny a little earlier than initially planned.
It was scheduled to arrive on Game Pass as a day one launch tomorrow, but Xbox VP of Gaming Marketing Aaron Greenberg confirmed in a post on X/Twitter a couple of hours ago that it’s now available on the service.

However, the launch has been a bit confusing. The release date was largely announced as September 19, but it arrived on Xbox and Steam consoles this morning. The PlayStation version, however, is still scheduled to launch tomorrow (or rather, midnight tonight).

Of course, many have already gotten their hands on Lies of P, and those who pre-ordered the Deluxe Edition will have access on September 15. Basically, maybe the release dates have been the real lie all along.
Lies of P is a dark version of Pinocchio, where the player steps into the shoes of “P, a puppet created by Geppetto, in the city plagued by 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 writing in your review which “may not stray particularly far from its spiritual inspiration, but like a puppet controlled by a skilled puppeteer, it plays its role extremely well in a wonderfully dark fantasy world.”
