E3 2017: EA Reveals A Way Out, New Co-Op Action Game From Brothers Dev

During EA’s E3 2017 press conference, we saw the debut of a new game from Hazelight, which features the creators of Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons. Teased back at The Game Awards in 2014, A Way Out is a co-op-only action/adventure game focusing on the exploits of two escaped cons who have to work in tandem to evade the police and other criminals.

As the first title from Hazelight, which opened back in 2014, the developers of A Way Out have kept the focus on parallel gameplay mechanics from Brothers, yet have upped the ante for this one–including a grittier and darker story to follow. Set in what looks like the ’70s, A Way Out focuses on the story of two convicts who are on the run, and going from prison escape, to getaway chase, to seemingly another caper, the story will follow these two characters as they come to grips with their past, all while trying to stay one step ahead of the law.

Unlike Brothers, however, A Way Out is only playable in co-op with another player. Either through local or online co-op, players will always have another person to experience the game with. During one section, one player with have to drive a getaway vehicle, while another stays in the back to shoot at oncoming vehicles. It looks to be a pretty clever take on the style of gameplay that was present in Brothers, controlling two unique characters with different perspectives, but expanded considerably.

Slated to arrive in early 2018 for Xbox One, PS4, and PC, A Way Out looks to be an exciting and original debut from Hazelight.

We’ll report back with more details on A Way Out in the days ahead. In the meantime, follow along with our EA Play liveblog for all of the other news the company has to share at the event, or watch the livestream here.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
