What you need to know

  • A Way Out is a two-player co-op game developed by Hazelight Studios and published by EA.
  • Previously, A Way Out was only available in EA Access for PlayStation 4.
  • A Way Out is now available in EA Access on Xbox One.
  • You can subscribe to EA Access through Amazon (opens in new tab).

A Way Out released back in 2018 as part of the EA Originals program. Developed by Hazelight Studios and directed by Josef Fares (known for his strong opinions on the Oscars) it's a game that features a unique mechanic: it must be played by two players and both players can see the other's screen, even online.

While A Way Out was added to the EA Access Vault for PlayStation 4 when the subscription service came to PlayStation earlier this year, it hasn't been available in the Vault on Xbox One.That has recently changed, as confirmed on the official EA Access page. If you have EA Access on Xbox One, you can now play A Way Out. Obviously, you'll need to find a friend to play with.

EA Access has seen several high-profile additions this year, including Battlefield V and Anthem. In addition to giving players access to the Vault, EA Access also provides discounts if you want to purchase any EA games or DLC. Players can also try out many games before they release.

  • Amazing game, shame I've already finished it, although maybe I should play it through with someone else, and play the other side.
  • Hmm I should play it to see what's it's about
  • It's very good, especially playing couch co op, it's probably the best couch co op, non party based game, I've ever played.
