A Way Out is a game from developer Hazelight, whose team is partly composed by developers of Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons and its creator, Josef Fares. It was unveiled at EA's E3 2017 press conference and promoted as a game "designed to be played with a friend on a couch". Gameplay is strictly split-screen co-op, either online or offline.
Players play as Vincent and Leo, two inmates who are planning a prison break. The game features various elements, including driving, shooting, exploration and more. Fares stated that the game will push boundaries on story-telling, allowing one of the players to engage on normal gameplay while the other is taking part of a cutscene.
