- Lies of P is one of the most well-received Soulslikes to release in 2023, praised for both gameplay and visuals.
- The game has been confirmed to receive a sequel, and job listings have revealed crucial info regarding that.
- Neowiz Games, the game’s publisher, confirms that the sequel will use Unreal Engine 5 as per a job listing.
Lies of P has turned out to be a remarkably fantastic title with its unique art direction, stellar gameplay, and an array of quality-of-life touches that make it stand out from the rest of the competition in the Soulslike genre. So, back when Neowiz Games confirmed its sequel to be in active development, you could easily anticipate how excited I got, pondering how the next Lies of P game would play out.
Well, as per a new job listing on the Careers section of Neowiz’s official website, it appears fans and followers of the franchise have all the more reason to be even more hyped for the forthcoming title. First spotted by the eagle-eyed ResetEra user Eroke and shared further by Idle Sloth on X, the Project Localization Planner job vacancy states the following under the “Project Introduction” subheading:
We are looking for a development planner for the next project, ‘The Lies of P.’
Based on Unreal Engine 5, we aim to provide top-notch graphics, in-depth level design, and an intense action experience.”
Digging a little further, I discovered that all of the job listings on the site that relate to Neowiz Games’ next project, which is presumably Lies of P’s sequel here, mention the same “Based on Unreal Engine 5” statement. Take the Quest Planner vacancy for example—we pretty much have official confirmation at this point, taking all these listings into account.
For those not in the know, Lies of P is built in Unreal Engine 4, and as good as it looks now, both Neowiz Games and Round8 Studio, which is the developer of the title, are looking to crank things up a significant notch with the sequel thanks to Unreal Engine 5, which is the latest game engine in line, first showed off to the world in 2020 in breathtaking fashion.
