Fans of Bloodborne and Pinocchio, rejoice, for your time has come. A Lies of P Xbox Game Pass day one release has apparently been confirmed, if a photograph of the Xbox booth at this week's Gamescom event is to be believed.

What evidence do we have for a Lies of P Xbox Game Pass release?

Over on Twitter, user Spartan P.B.G spotted a rather blurry photo depicting a banner for Lies of P at the Xbox booth at Gamescom. The photo was then retweeted and corroborated by "Xbox news guy" Idle Sloth, lending some more credence to the leak. The Lies of P banner sits alongside a banner for The Last Case of Benedict Fox, which was announced at this year's Xbox E3 showcase and which is also coming to Game Pass on day one.

It's looking pretty likely that evocative Soulslike Lies of P is heading to Xbox Game Pass on day one.

This leak is corroborated further by a recent tweet from gaming insider The Snitch, who has correctly predicted multiple recent announcements including the entire Sony State of Play presentation in June. The Snitch's tweet consists of a block green color (which looks very much like Xbox green) and some Morse code, which translates to "the wise man say, you'll find your way". That's a lyric from Kanye West's Pinocchio Story, which...well, it's pretty hard not to read that as a Lies of P reference, right?

It's worth saying here that nothing has been officially revealed as of yet, of course. There isn't going to be an official Xbox showcase at Gamescom, per se, but we are just a couple of hours away from the opening night showcase, which could well contain a Lies of P reveal. We'll just have to wait and see what happens, but as it stands, the evidence is piling up for a Lies of P Xbox Game Pass launch.

What is Lies of P?

Lies of P is a Soulslike that looks pretty heavily inspired by From Software's Bloodborne (and, of course, Pinocchio). It was announced back in May last year (thanks, IGN) for PC and current-gen consoles and will cast you as a dark, gritty version of Pinocchio looking for Geppetto. The game promises "interconnected procedural quests" that will play out differently depending on "how you lie", with those choices also affecting your ending. Naturally, there will also be plenty of brutal Soulslike combat to engage in and a Belle Époque-inspired city to explore as well.

We don't have a concrete release date for Lies of P yet. At the moment, the game's Steam page still lists a date of "TBA", but the buzz is building in the lead-up to Gamescom, so it likely won't be much longer before we hear more about it. Stay tuned to TechRaptor for more information about Lies of P.
