Hazelight and Electronic Arts have just published a new trailer showcasing It Takes Two‘s cooperative gameplay. The game will launch on March 26th, and players who buy it on Steam or Origin can invite friends who don’t own the game to play with them through the Friends Pass feature (Origin) or Steam’s Remote Play Together system.
I enjoyed A Way Out but this new title from Josef Fares’ Hazelight studio seems to be a more lighthearted story, and I feel that I’m going to like it even more because of that. It helps a lot that the game looks beautiful, as you can see in the video I’ve embedded below.
Embark on the craziest journey of your life in It Takes Two, a genre-bending platform adventure created purely for co-op. Invite a friend to join for free with Friend’s Pass or Remote Play Together (depending on the platform) and work together across a huge variety of gleefully disruptive gameplay challenges. Play as the clashing couple Cody and May, two humans turned into dolls by a magic spell. Together, trapped in a fantastical world where the unpredictable hides around every corner, they are reluctantly challenged with saving their fractured relationship.
Master unique and connected character abilities in every new level. Help each other across an abundance of unexpected obstacles and laugh-out-loud moments. Kick gangster squirrels’ furry tails, pilot a pair of underpants, DJ a buzzing night club, and bobsleigh through a magical snow globe. Embrace a heartfelt and hilarious story where narrative and gameplay weave into a uniquely metaphorical experience.
It Takes Two is developed by the award-winning studio Hazelight, the industry leader of cooperative play. They’re about to take you on a wild and wondrous ride where only one thing is for certain: we’re better together.
