Is Lies Of P Open World? – Answered

Should you go in expecting a vast, open-world adventure?

The world laid out before you in Lies of P is gorgeous, filled to the brim with environmental details that would make Hidetaka Miyazaki himself smile. While the world has taken more than a little inspiration from the lands of Bloodborne, not only in its combat but its general feeling of doom-and-gloom, are we treated to an open-world wonderland more akin to Elden Ring or a sprawling world like the glum streets that we have explored before?

For those of you hoping to explore the world laid out before you at your own pace, you may be disappointed to learn that Lies of P is a more straightforward adventure than games like Elden Ring, feeling more like a spiritual successor to Bloodborne in more ways than one. While the path you follow is relatively linear, there is still plenty of room to explore, but you cannot leave the boundaries before you.

Throughout the fictional city of Krat, you’ll find plenty of things that will catch your eye, and it honestly plays to the overall gameplay and vibe that Lies of P brings to the table. While it would be fun to explore the city at our leisure rather than be set down a specific path, the story being told here is much more suited to the original Dark Souls formula rather than the Elden Ring path.

Whether you’re struggling to find out which bosses you have yet to face or you’ve already found yourself ready to quit at the dastardly Parade Master, we’ve got you covered in our Lies of P section below. Countless little secrets are hiding in this dense world; check it out before you embark on this dark reimagining of a childhood favorite.
