Cooperative prison break action.
A Way Out, an action game centered around a prison break, was announced today at Electronic Arts’ EA Play event today. The title is being developed by Hazelight Studios, in conjunction with the EA Originals program, and headed by the creators of the 2013 game Brothers – A Tale of Two Sons.
The cooperative game allows two players, both split-screen and online, to assume one of two prisoners working together to escape a prison and their adventures on the outside. A reveal trailer was shown, while you can check out the official gameplay trailer below.
“The narrative keeps you on your toes, offering a fresh, unique and compelling experience throughout,” according to the video’s description. “Get a unique look into the character’s personal lives and their driving motivations through their interaction with others as strong cinematic moments tie the plot together and propel the characters forward through their journey.”
A Way Out is coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Origin on PC in early 2018.
