Xbox just updated the games you can expect from Xbox and PC Game Pass in late September and early October.
The subscription service is usually updated twice each month and the second wave of September starts with the release of a new soulslike action RPG called Lies of P, that’s taking a unique spin off the tale of Pinocchio. It’s available now to all members on day one for Xbox and PC Game Pass players.
Here’s a quick description of Lies of P:
“Lies of P is a thrilling soulslike that takes the story of Pinocchio, turns it on its head, and sets it against the darkly elegant backdrop of the Belle Epoque era. You must adapt yourself and your weapons to face untold horrors, untangle the unfathomable secrets of the city’s elites and choose whether to confront predicaments with the truth or weave lies to overcome them on the journey to find yourself.”
For the rest of the month, here’s what you can expect from the service as there are a couple more day one titles to look forward to in the coming days.
