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 vehicle chases, stealth passages, melee fights, shootouts and many more. A Way Out is a story-based game that looks like it should be a mostly single-player experience, but it is very much a linear co-op game that forces you to work together with another player to proceed in the story. "The story is a genre-transcending narrative that's meant to be played with someone you know", writer and director Josef Fares said.
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.
Players can download the friends pass free trial for players to enjoy the entire co-op experience with a friend who has purchased the full game.
A Way Out features both split-screen and online co-op with each player assuming the role of either Leo or Vincent as they break out of a prison and escape the authorities. A Way Out is expected to come to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on March 23rd, 2018.
