Soulslike RPG set in the world of the fairy tale Pinocchio is one of the positive surprises of this year. Lies of P recorded a strong launch, but a serious bug in the early stages of the game may prevent many players from continuing the adventure.
Information about a bug in the second chapter of the game, which can even lead to the destruction of our save game files, reached the developers yesterday.. Members of NEOWIZ addressed it, suggesting a temporary solution:
"Currently, we have identified a bug that can halt the game's progression in Chapter 2.We sincerely apologise to everyone who has encountered this issue.
As we investigate how we can fix/prevent this issue we would like to recommend the following guidelines to prevent this bug.
- Before defeating the Chapter 2 Boss the 'Scrapped Watchman', if the players attempt to enter locked rooms within Hotel Krat a game-breaking bug may occur preventing further game progression."
Clearly identifying the source of the problem can save you from causing it to occur, which should be considered a useful tip. Nevertheless, it will also negatively affect our gameplay experience. Fans of in-depth exploration of the game world must hold off for now, giving up trying to open every passage.
However, it won't end there - the developers have assured that they will try to get rid of this bug as soon as possible. At the same time, they are aware of the fact that the game likes to shut down at the least expected moments.
"After conducting a meticulous review and investigation of the reported cases, we have identified various factors causing these problems. As of now, most of the game crashes including the 'LowLevelFatalError' can be resolved through a integrity verification process.
We recommend players experiencing game crashes to undergo a integrity verification test as instructed on the Steam Notice.https://help.steampowered.com/en/faqs/view/5814-D9A3-BE42-62DF
In addition to the integrity verification, we also kindly ask players to make sure the graphic drivers and BIOS are updated."
According to SteamDB over the past 24 hours, the number of simultaneously active Lies of P players oscillated between 10-17 thousand people.
