I have discovered “A way out” last year when I was playing FarCry 5 in co-op with a friend of mine, and we were wondering about the existence of other games that can be played in co-op mode. Somehow, we did not buy it at that time, and I have rediscovered it a couple of weeks ago, in the EA Access game’s list.
Here is the launch trailer.
About « A way Out »
A Way Out is an action-adventure game developed by Hazelight Studios and published by Electronic Arts under their EA Originals program on March 23th, 2018. It is the second video game to be directed by Josef Fares after great co-op game, Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons (not available on PlayStation 4).
The game has no single-player option. I know that’s strange, but A Way Out is only playable in either online or local split-screen co-op between two players. I played it in co-op mode, but it must be a great couch game. The game was released on the same date for Microsoft Windows, and Xbox One also, selling over a million copies in two weeks.
I have played the game with a friend (who already knew some things about it), and we succeeded to get all the trophies in 5 hours and 11 minutes. It is the first game I have platined on this CostinLive account.
You can find the list of all Trophies, and also details about each one of them (video included about how you can do it), here. Take a look before starting the game, some of them are super easy to get, you will only need to do simple things.
The storyline is super great to crazy because you will never saw the end coming. It was an interesting end and also surprising by its unusual approach. You will definitely remember this game.
I will not tell you more about this story. As the trailer shows, the game is about two guys that will escape from the prison, but just keep in mind that the prison part is only 15% of the game, and this is the only spoiler you’ll get from my part. 😀
The game costs around 35 euros, but I strongly recommend you to buy that EA Access. It’s like you will buy only this game and you get all the rest of the Electronic Arts games for free. 🙂 And you don’t even need 2 copies to play co-op. Only one player must buy the game.
Drop a comment if you already finished it. Or after you will. 🙂
