It takes two for two players with cool graphics.
BAFTA-winning Hazelight Studios and Electronic Arts have released It Takes Two worldwide – a cross-genre platform adventure with pure co-op alignment for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X | S and PC via Origin and Steam.
With uniquely varied gameplay that blends seamlessly with the story being told, It Takes Two sets new standards in co-op innovation and offers players an exciting adventure that they can enjoy either on the couch or online with a friend.
Players embark on a wild journey as Cody and May, a falling out couple who must learn to work together and overcome differences in order to escape the fantastic world they suddenly find themselves in.
“We’ve created something completely new here that the co-op genre won’t know how to do,” said Josef Fares, Founder and Game Director at Hazelight Studios.
“At some points the game makes you laugh, at others it gets very emotional, and then there are moments when your pulse is racing because the gameplay is just so fast. The game has it all and we can’t wait to hear what the fans have to say about it. “
“Hazelight is not only innovative, but also a real pioneer in game development. They create experiences that uniquely bring players together, ”said Steve Pointon, senior vice president of third-party content and development for Electronic Arts.
“They are true virtual artists in every way and we are honored to have supported them in their inspiring vision for It Takes Two, an action-adventure that combines humor, heart and gameplay in a co-op experience like no other.”
As players try to unravel the intricate web that Cody and May are trapped in thanks to a magical spell that turned them into puppets, they encounter quirky challenges around every corner.
The unpredictable nature of each level takes players through a uniquely metaphorical gaming experience that tells a universal story of relationships in which Cody and May must work together to save their broken marriage on the verge of divorce.
From vacuum cleaners going astray, to charming love gurus with opinions on every topic, to a nightclub desperately in need of a DJ – obstacles pop up around every corner that make for hilarious and warm moments.
