Hazelight Announces Co-Op Prison Break Game “A Way Out”

During today’s EA Play conference, Hazelight, a studio founded by the developer of Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, announced their first game: A Way Out.

A Co-Op only split-screen adventure, you and a friend must work together to escape a prison. While it supports online co-op, Hazelight wants players to play couch co-op whenever possible, to heighten the emotional bond the players are supposed to feel.

Here’s a brief synopsis of the game, via Electronic Arts:

A Way Out is a new EA Originals game coming to players from the creative minds behind the critically-acclaimed indie title, Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons. Coming early 2018, A Way Out is a co-op only game uniquely tailored for two players to work together no matter the situation. Through a compelling narrative, Leo and Vincent will embark on an emotional adventure, where they will live some memorable action moments that they will face together including car chases, stealth passages, melee fights, shootouts and many more.

The story of A Way Out begins in prison with two separate inmates, Leo and Vincent, who don’t know each other. While their individual stories progress, players will have to build a relationship based on trust as they break both men out of prison into the world beyond. This co-op only experience is meant to be played together with a friend on a couch or online.

A Way Out launches early 2018 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
