The Oscars might suck but The Game Awards sure don't, at least according to Josef Fares. During the awards show, he debuted his next game from Hazelight, It Takes Two. Like A Way Out before it, this one allows players to invite a friend who doesn't have a copy of the game to play for free. It supports both online and local co-op.

Embark on an all-new, crazy journey in It Takes Two, a thrilling platform adventure game built strictly for co-op. Step into the shoes of Cody and May, two humans turned into dolls by a magic spell, who, trapped in a fantastical world where unpredictability hides around every corner, are reluctantly challenged with saving their fractured relationship. In It Takes Two, players work together across a huge variety of gleefully disruptive gameplay challenges such as piloting a pair of underpants or DJing a buzzing night club. With connected character abilities in every new level, an abundance of unexpected obstacles and hilariously heartfelt moments, players will work their way through a uniquely metaphorical gameplay experience.

It Takes Two will release on March 26, 2021 for Xbox One, PS4, and PC. It will retail for $39.99. Players who purchase on consoles will be able tp upgrade to its next-gen counterpart for free on the same day.

The Game Awards are still going strong so be sure to tune-in for any new announcements.
