- Flintlock: Siege of the Dawn
- Lies of P
- The Lords of the Fallen
Flintlock: Siege of the Dawn
Flintlock: The Dawn Siege is an open world action-RPG and adventure game. When the gate to the Afterlife opens and unleashes undead legions of the Old Gods, mortals must unite to survive. The game is a true epic of revenge, combat and magic. Players fight alongside Nor Vanek of the Coalition of Last Hope and a magical creature named Enki. Players challenge the gods and use a varied and creative combat system.
Flintlock: The Siege of Dawn is expected in 2023 for PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series and Xbox One.
Lies of P
This Souls-like game is based on Carlo Collodi’s famous fairy tale and allows players to embody Pinocchio in a once prosperous Belle Époque city, now plunged into a dark and bloody environment. The puppet must face the dangers of the city to find the inventor Mr. Geppetto and become human, but he can’t trust anyone to achieve his goals. Thanks to its revision of the story, the game is partly based on a system of choices, in this case telling the truth or lying, which influences the course of the plot and allows Lies of P to have several possible endings.
Lies of P is expected in 2023 on PC, PS5 and Xbox Series.
