A Way Out. Let’s play.

Gaming is part of our life. And new games are coming. Check this one!

Created by Hazelight Studios, led by the man behind the superb Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, this two-player co-op game is about two men trying to break out of prison. It’s set in the early 1970s and makes use of a variety of gameplay set-ups, such as shooting, driving, crawling and solving other physical problems. It’s out on March 23. 

From the creators of Brothers – A Tale of Two Sons comes A Way Out, an exclusively co-op adventure where you play the role of one of two prisoners making their daring escape from prison.What begins as a thrilling breakout quickly turns into an unpredictable, emotional adventure unlike anything seen or played before.A Way Out is an experience that must be played with two players. Each player controls one of the main characters, Leo and Vincent, in a reluctant alliance to break out of prison and gain their freedom.

Together, you’ll explore notions of trust and consequence as your choices begin to catch up with you.Play the entire experience with your friends for free using the one-click free trial feature.

A Way Out, the narrative-driven adventure game from the team behind the acclaimed Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, is a co-op-only experience. That is, you can’t play it unless you have a partner for the entire journey. But in an unusual setup, the online and local co-op experiences will be identical in one huge way: Only one of you will have to buy the game.

Electronic Arts — which is publishing A Way Out under its EA Originals program — will offer a free “friends pass” trial for the game, the company announced tonight during The Game Awards 2017. As long as you know someone who has purchased A Way Out, you can download the trial and play “the entire co-op experience” with that person without paying for it, said EA. In essence, it’ll work just like inviting a friend to your house to play the game on your couch.

This is a remarkable move, especially since A Way Out is Hazelight’s first project and EA is a massive publisher. At the same time, A Way Out is a unique experience — you need a human partner for the whole game, and it plays out in split-screen co-op — so it calls for unique treatment.
