From the creators of Brothers – A Tale of Two Sons comes A Way Out, an exclusively co-op adventure where you play the role of one of two prisoners making their daring escape from prison.
What begins as a thrilling breakout quickly turns into an unpredictable, emotional adventure unlike anything seen or played before.
A Way Out is an experience that must be played with two players. Each player controls one of the main characters, Leo and Vincent, in a reluctant alliance to break out of prison and gain their freedom.
Together, you’ll explore notions of trust and consequence as your choices begin to catch up with you.
Play the entire experience with your friends for free using the one-click free trial feature.

Me and my friend finished the game in one run because once you started playing you couldn’t stop. You totally forget to eat and sleep, such amazing this game is. The story is very involving and you are interested in every character, no matter main or side one. It’s the first true co-op with a split screen in a while and it’s awesome. We didn’t have any problems with the plot or the gameplay. A Way Out is a great example of how one little studio with some talented people can really f*** Oscars - and big AAA projects!

Such a disappointment. I love the idea of the game but there are too few actual moments of creating “a way out”. Mostly you run through a corridor and figure out how to overcome another obstacle - and usually you have to do the same things: lift something, open something. And even here the game is not challenging - yellow dots mark every person or object you need to go further. What is really sad is that the changing of gameplay to shooting is boring too. As a result, too easy and repetitive gameplay ruins a great idea. A Way Out is not a fun at all.
So we just beat this one with a friend of mine, and I can say that it's one of the best story-focused games I've played so far. If you need a good reference point for this one - you can look at David Cage's games (e.g., Heavy Rain, Beyond: Two Souls). The core gameplay is mostly QTE and minigames, with some dialogue here and there and a couple of possible story branches. But since this game is aimed to be played together with a different person - that changes everything. Every time you do something together - it feels incredible. In the Prison chapters especially. All of those moments when one of you distracts a guard, while the other one does something sketchy - feel so good. The game is also filled with different references and easter eggs from things like "Shawshank Redemption", "Scarface" and many others. And they are not as blunt as "here, look, this is a reference", but they all feel very natural and fit in the world quite well. Anyways, if you have someone to play this game with - you should pick it up 👌

A nice six hours action film for you and your buddy. Game has nice touches as interactive experience — its very generous for situations, places and actions. Looks clear: it is a passion project of Josef Fares: his ideas for story and game design mechanics is everywere. Cool mini games comes always in time and keep you interested even in quite monents. If you into co-op games you cant miss that one.

Простая, но глубокая история. Кооперативный геймплей с кучей уникальных ситуаций, необязательных мини-игр и огромным разнообразием в целом. Отличная музыка и атмосфера. Из минусов только сильно устаревшая графика и местами слабая анимация, которые при этом не мешают погружаться в мир и проникаться персонажами. Играть весело порой до детского восторга, таких игр с чисто сюжетным кооперативом на 1 раз не делают, желаю хороших продаж!
