A Way Out, the new game by the Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons developer Hazelight, received a brand new trailer at The Game Awards today. Just as in the announcement trailer back at E3 this year, the new trailer showcases the game's unique cooperative gameplay, where the action always takes place in a split-screen format, with the two protagonists, Leo and Vincent, performing different tasks at the same time.
While the game is only playable with a co-op partner, it supports both couch as well as online co-op. Also, the developer announced today that for players who will be experiencing the game via online co-op, they would not need to buy two copies.
Once someone owns a copy of the game, they can give another player who is on the same platform a "friends pass free trial," which will allow the second player to join in and play the entire game without purchasing it.
Regarding this generous decision to allow the second player to play for free, the game's writer and director, Josef Fares, said the following in a statement:
“We developed the game to be experienced with a friend on the couch, but since that isn’t possible for everyone, those who download the friend’s pass free-trial will be able to play the entire game online with a friend who owns the full game and still get an awesome experience.”
A Way Out will be available for $29.99 on March 23, 2018, arriving on PC via Origin, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
