Hazelight, a new studio from the creators of Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, revealed a new co-op game called A Way Out in a gameplay preview. It’s a co-op game that is made to be played in split screen, featuring two characters with their own stories. Says Hazelight founder Josef Fares:
“This game is going to bring a co-op experience unlike anything you have ever seen before.“The idea for A Way Out came when me 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.”
Said EA executive vice president Patrick Soderlund said in a statement:
“Josef and his team at Hazelight represent everything that EA Originals stands for. They are a small and very talented group with a vision and passion for a game that is truly unique in the video game industry. A Way Out is going to surprise people with its innovative co-op gameplay and the way it tells an emotional story solely through these two characters.”
