At the heart of an Electronic Arts conference focusing on annual sports licenses and multiplayer titles, the atypical projects take advantage of their singularity to offer themselves a welcome welcome: this was the case of Unravel there two years old, it is now the turn of A Way Out Download , whose brief presentation marked the spirits during the conference of the American giant. We had the opportunity to attend a presentation and even lay our hands on the new baby of the creators of Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons for a half hour. Sufficient to judge the potential of the work, but frustrating in view of the variety that the title intends to propose and that we could only catch a glimpse of. A Way Out is a narrative experience that is only playable in cooperation, whether you are online or quietly installed on your couch with your gaming partner. Players embody Léo and Vincent, two characters found in prison at the beginning of the adventure and who will get to know each other to carry out their ultimate goal: to escape from the penitentiary.
A goal not so ultimate than that in view of the video proposed on the scene of the EA conference, auguring of the presence of sequences of play outside the prison mentioned here. This is one of his sequences that we were able to try. After a brief exchange in a vehicle during which Léo and Vincent – and by transposition, the two players behind the screen – must agree on who will carry the gun, our two companions take the lead of attacking a small supermarket. For what purposes? Josef Fares, author and director yet fanciful and affable here has not wished to expand on the subject, logically preserving the screenplay of his title out of sight. No matter, the sequence allowed us to discover the narrative dimension of the title and the nature of the proposed cooperation. For example, it was possible to prepare the case by peacefully inciting people to shop elsewhere or by sabotaging the telephone wire, for example. Similarly, once the break had started, the player who did not have the gun could continue to monitor or intimidate the last remaining people, which could have short-term consequences on their reaction and whether the larceny was successful.
The idea is not, however, to make A Way Out a branch title, as the proposed choices serve only to involve more players and demonstrate the interest of cooperation. However, some variations are possible, but they will not affect the overall adventure that is dictated by a scenario already laid down on paper. This sequence is not really an example of what A Way Out will be. One of the peculiarities of the app comes from the variety of its gameplay, which we saw with a new phase (not playable this time) during which Leo and Vincent were running away from a hospital. This time, the realization opted for a full screen displaying the control of a single player, varying his plans to make us pass from one to the other in a style evoking the pursuit races of a Uncharted … Before that the camera offers us an ultimate facetium to switch again, making Vincent the hero of a fighting game in 2D view.
