Game news gamescom 2022: 5 Elden Ring and From Software inspired by souls
Souls-like games were honored among the many titles presented at Gamescom 2022. While these games incorporate many elements of the genre, each of them also has its own personality and its own universe. JV’s editorial staff presents five Souls-like games inspired by FromSoftware.
- Flintlock: The Seat of Dawn
- Lies of P
- The Lords of the Dead
Flintlock: The Seat of Dawn
Flintlock: The Seat of Dawn is an open-world action-RPG and adventure game. When the gate to the Beyond opens and releases undead legions of the Old Gods, mortals must band together to survive. The game offers a true epic of revenge, combat and magic. Players fight alongside Nor Vanek of the Last Hope Coalition, and a magical creature called Enki. Players challenge the gods and use a varied and creative combat system.
Flintlock: The Siege of Dawn is expected in 2023 on PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series and Xbox One.
Lies of P
This Souls-like is inspired by the famous tale by Carlo Collodi and allows players to embody Pinocchio in a once prosperous Belle Époque town, now immersed in a dark and bloody atmosphere. The puppet must face the dangers of the city to find the inventor Mr. Geppetto and become human, but cannot trust anyone to achieve his ends. Thanks to its revisiting of the tale, the game is partly based on a system of choices, in this case to tell the truth or to lie, which impacts the course of the plot and allows Lies of P to have multiple possible endings.
Lies of P is expected in 2023 on PC, PS5 and Xbox Series.
soulstice is an RPG and a hack’n’slash in a dark, mysterious and dangerous world. Players embody a Chimera. In this world, chimeras are hybrid warriors born from the union of two souls.

When Specters invade the Sacred Realm of Keidas and take possession of the bodies of their victims, the Chimeras are the only beings who can eradicate them, and protect humanity. Briar and Lute are on a mission to liberate a ruined city from Ghost occupation.
