A Way Out was released on March 22, 2018 by EA Origin. The game was developed by Hazelight. A Way Out is a 2 player coop action game.

Gamlay follows two prisoners, Leo and Vincent, making their daring escape from prison which is the essence of the game, the story lends itself naturally to a two player coop.

The game uses the third person and it is designed to use the split screen mode and it feeds very much like a movie. The game can be played as 2 players locally or online.

As the story of the brothers is told simultaneously, their progress may not be synchronized, which may result in one player being able to control their character, while another watching a cutscene. Players can take on different roles. For instance, during a prison escape scene, one player needs to distract the guard, while another player needs to find a tool to aid their escape. These roles are not fixed, so Leo and Vincent can swap their roles in another playthrough.

Its together that they explore their prison world and gain the trust of others. The interaction is complex and subtle. The AI for the NCP is excellent. This game is surprisingly well designed for the game’s story.

The story is told in three chapters and the ending we will leave for players to discover on their own.
