Lies of P is now available on Game Pass just one tiny slightly earlier than originally planned.
It was scheduled to hit Game Pass as a day one release tomorrow, but Xbox’s VP of Game Marketing Aaron Greenberg confirmed in a post on X/Twitter a few hours ago that it’s now available on the service.

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

Of course, plenty have already gotten their hands on Lies of P, and those who ordered the Deluxe Edition got access on September 15th. Basically, release dates may 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 haunted town of Krat, where you must navigate a web of lies and secrets and fight against deadly puppets.”
IGN gave the game an 8/10 with Travis Northup writes in his review that it “may not branch very far from its soul-like inspiration, but as a marionette controlled by a skilled puppeteer, it plays the role extremely well in a wonderfully dark fantasy world.”
