  • From the creators of Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, A Way Out looks at gaming styles from a fresh perspective to provide a unique experience. Designed to be played entirely in co-operative mode, you’ll need either a friend with you, or go online and play with others around the world. The best thing is, your friend across the world won’t have to buy the game as well as you. Only one purchase is necessary, send your friend an invite to download the free trial which gives them full access to the game and all it has to offer. Your story starts off in a large prison complex, with Leo already an inmate and Vincent just arriving. You’ll quickly notice how the two are a clash of personalities, but their determination to break out of prison is enough to force them into each other’s company. Now that the promise of escaping has been made, it’s time to get to work on the plan. You’ll need to actively work together to complete the objectives set throughout the game, so being able to communicate with one another is imperative.

    From the very start, you will begin learning more about the characters, how they ended up in prison and their lives on the outside. You’ll notice that Leo is quick to react to situations, usually with violence, whereas Vincent is a lot more relaxed, and prefers to solve issues verbally. Decisions will need to be made throughout the game about who uses the gun, or who drives, and you will need to base these decisions on your own skills, as well as the temperaments of individual characters. Enjoy the rollercoaster of emotions that ensues, with family reunions, police shootouts and terrifying car crashes – sure to have even the most experienced gamer wondering what’s going to happen next. A Way Out features plenty of playing styles and game genres to please a wide audience, including, but not limited to: car chases, melee fights, shootouts, explorations, stealth missions and minigames. The experimental design looks fondly back on old style two-person arcade games, with its unique view on narrative, interactivity and split screen. Occasionally another section will appear in the split screen to allow you to see new information, such as a police car arriving, or someone reaching for a weapon.

    During the building process, the creators wanted to ensure that both players were continuously engaged in the game, which led to them cutting out long, unnecessary cinematic scenes, and creating exciting content to keep each player on the edge of their seat. Throughout the game, there will be times where one player is locked in a cut scene, but the other free to move around and watch the action unfold from any angle they want. The game designers strived to create something different, and they’ve definitely achieved it.
