EA revealed a new game from devel­op­er Haze­light, which has been titled “A Way Out.” Haze­light is a new devel­op­ment team, but the writer/director who worked on Broth­ers: A Tale of Two Sons, will also be work­ing on this project.

A Way Out will also be a coop­er­a­tive expe­ri­ence, except you are break­ing out of a prison (ohh my). You can play as one of two char­ac­ters —Vin­cent or Leo—and the jour­ney they take togeth­er. 

This is a sto­ry dri­ven game and is played split-screen co-op only. There is no solo play in A Way Out, but you can play co-op online or local­ly on the couch with a friend. The cre­ator actu­al­ly rec­om­mends play­ing with a friend in the local set­ting as the game is designed to func­tion that way. To see what A Way Out has to offer, check out the video below:

 

A Way Out is com­ing to PS4, Xbox One, and PC some­time in ear­ly 2018. The title will be pub­lished by Elec­tron­ic Arts Orig­i­nals Pro­gram, which help fund inde­pen­dent stu­dio projects. 

Haze­light was start­ed by Josef Fares, the writer/director of the acclaimed Broth­ers: A Tale of Two Sons. Although A Way Out is the studio’s first major title, it looks to be an excel­lent start and I am real­ly hop­ing suc­cess with this game.
