A Way Out
Best 10 Co-Op Games to Look Forward to in 2018
Of all the entries on this list, A Way Out has to be one of the most anticipated co-op games of the year, if only because of director Josef Farez’s “passion” to deliver a quality experience. To say that Farez is hyped about the prospect of his latest game would be a woeful understatement. The eccentric developer, who’s better known for his work in the film industry, is determined that A Way Out is going to be a memorable title, and his down to earth nature and transparency has undoubtedly already won adoration from potential buyers already.
But aside from Farez’s charisma, A Way Out does look like a genuinely good game and a breath of fresh air for the industry. We really haven’t seen a AAA co-op story-driven production like this on console for years, and arguably never one that puts its emphasis on stealth, puzzle solving, and heavy dialogue. As for its narrative, why on earth haven’t there been more Prison Break-like games? It seems like such an obvious fit for a cooperative game, and especially with a movie director at its helm, expect A Way Out to make a big splash when it arrives, March. 23.
