We all know that if you want to break out of a maximum-security prison, you can’t do it solo and it’s fundamental that you find someone else crazy enough to try and pull it off with you, right?! Well Hazelight clearly know this and so that’s why their new action adventure ‘A Way Out’ is a multiplayer only game. That’s right, no single player option. You either play online or a local split screen, but this just adds to the realism of the experience.
Take control of Leo and Vincent, two cons with no prior connection apart from being behind the same bars. Together they must work together as a team to break out and then (as importantly) stay out of prison. Cooperation is the key to success and these two misfits must find a way to work together to achieve their freedom. Can Leo distract the guard long enough for Vincent to steal the necessary tool? From car chases, to stealth passages, to melee fights, shoot outs and more, this is sure to be an action-packed adventure.
EA describes the game as a thrilling escape that turns into an emotional adventure and the further you progress in the game the more this becomes apparent. The cut scenes for each character (that often don’t necessarily occur simultaneously) give deeper insight into each of their individual personalities and add to the underlying emotional storyline. One thing’s for sure, it’s going to be one hell of a journey and the main question is….. can YOU find a way out?
