A Way Out Trailer & Release Date

By  | 

The most pleasant surprise of E3 2017 thus far has certainly been this first trailer for the EA Originals title, A Way Out.

A Way Out comes to us from Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons creator Josef Fares and his new venture Hazelight Studios. It follows two inmates who are trying to escape a high-security prison for their own reasons. Should they manage to do so, they will then need to find a way to escape the law and perhaps even find a bit of peace.

Much like Brothers, A Way Out will emphasize multiple character gameplay. Unlike Brothers, A Way Out will be an entirely co-op experience. What that means is that you will need to play the game with someone else and will not be able to play as both characters with one controller as you could in Brothers. 

This emphasis on co-op gameplay makes sense when you dive into the gameplay specifics. Josef Fares stated that A Way Out will focus on the ability to operate inherently from your partner in many situations. So, while you’ll participate in standard co-op fare such as shooting from a vehicle while your partner drives, you’ll also be asked to perform more complicated tasks that require each of you to handle a specific assignment.

Interestingly, one character will never have to complete a specific assignment meaning it is up to the players to determine who does what. Furthermore, if one player is caught up in a cutscene or otherwise indisposed, the other player will still be able to control their character independently. 

At this time, it appears that A Way Out is being designed as a split-screen multiplayer experience and will not offer an independent screen multiplayer option even if you take the game online. This design will seemingly feed into the game’s cooperation aspects. 

A Way Out is scheduled to release in 2018 for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
