Play With a Friend Without The Need for Two Copies
One of the biggest and most obvious issues that rears its head when you buy an exclusively co-op game is the need for a second player. If you haven’t organised the purchase with someone else, ensuring that they buy it as well, you’re stuck with a game you want to play, but can’t. Thankfully, that shouldn’t ever be an issue with A Way Out.
Two people can play A Way Out with just one copy of the game. The owner of the game can simply invite someone else to join them and both of them can play through the entire game. The second player doesn’t need to own the game in any form, all they need is a friend and an invite. This decision makes the game far more accessible. Those that are on the fence about picking the game up have the chance to play it for free, and anyone that does buy it shouldn’t need to worry about whether they’ll be able to find someone else.
