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 storytelling, allowing one of the players to engage on normal gameplay while the other is taking part of a cut-scene.
