A Way Out Reaction at EA Play
Wait, There is More!! We are not done yet because EA came strong with more titles and on our second reveal features a new take on co-op gaming with “A Way Out”, which is from the same people that brought us Brothers: Tale of Two Sons. Checking out the story of two inmates Leo and Vincent have they form a bond to find a way out and venture off to handle some unfinished business.
“This game is going to bring a co-op experience unlike anything you have ever seen before,” said Josef Fares, Writer and Director at Hazelight. “The idea for A Way Out came when I and a friend tried to find a story driven co-op game that wasn’t a drop-in/drop-out experience. We simply could not find a game like that. We’re also bringing an innovative look into how to tell the story of both these characters. Players will be immersed in the game with the way we change the display from a full-screen experience seamlessly to different cinematic split-screen formats. By focusing on the two characters in different ways, it opens up a huge variety of gameplay, as we really wanted to avoid repetitions so they will get to know the characters through very different situations.”
- Embark on a Unique Co-op Adventure: Meet Leo and Vincent, two men who don’t know each other but who will have to learn to work together no matter the situation. They need to find a way to break out of prison and continue on together beyond the prison walls.
- Experience a Wide Variety of Gameplay: Together they embark on a journey, where they will live many memorable action moments together: car chases, stealth passages, melee fights, shootouts and much more.
- Get to Know Leo and Vincent: As they set out to reach a common goal, you will get to know more about their lives, who they are and the people they care for.
Hazelight is all about making games that focus on story-driven experiences backed by innovative gameplay. We truly believe that there are ways to play and experience games that have yet to be discovered, and that’s what drives the team here at Hazelight.
This is a top notch looking game, but I will have to wait to make a judgment. I will give you props EA, you showed off something unique and impressive I give you that.
