Lies of P is a new Soulslike game that’s exciting many fans of the genre. Who doesn’t love a punishing video game with a beautiful, historically-inspired backdrop? However, as these hardcore gamers jump into the world of Lies of P, they wonder about what other Soulslike features will show up in the gameplay. Parrying? cryptic NPCs? And one of the most important questions: is there multiplayer in Lies of P?
Can you play multiplayer?
Unlike many Soulsborne games, Lies of P has no multiplayer and is a completely single-player experience. So no, you cannot play through the game with a friend. You are going to face every single boss in this game solo. On the flip side, though, you are never at risk of being invaded. The game’s developers want you completely immersed in their world and story. There are no current plans to add a multiplayer mode to the game, either.
How can you play Lies of P with friends?
The only way you can play Lies of P with your friends is by getting creative. You’ll either have to invite them to your house and do some backseat gaming or head to Discord and play concurrently. There, you can use Discord’s many features to stream your game to your friends so you can enjoy it together. Beware, though— if you stream the game to your friends they might make fun of how many times you die.
If you miss multiplayer for the lack of connection to the community, you have options. All Lies of P fans can head to places like Reddit and Twitch to play, watch, and talk about this thrilling new game. It’s not the same as fighting enemies side by side, but it’s the best way to connect with fellow Lies of P players.
