2A Way Out
A Way Out is a special kind of co-op game. Where other games may throw in a co-op mode alongside the main single-player mode, here, co-op is the only way to play. A Way Out tells the story of Leo and Vincent; they’re prison inmates and together, they’ve hatched up a plan to escape. With you and your partner each taking on the role of one of the men, you’ll have to carry out their plan. But getting outside the prison walls is only the beginning. It turns out life on the outside isn’t going to be easy for two runaway convicts.
Over the course of the game you’ll learn more about Leo and Vincent, and their separate lives. You’ll need to stealth past police officers, work together to solve puzzles, and help each other out in a big world where everyone’s out to get you. It’s a fantastic game, and one of the best co-op games of recent years. The fact it relies so much on teamwork makes it one of the best games for couples on Xbox Game Pass.
Note: A Way Out is available on EA Play, so you’ll need Xbox Game Pass Ultimate to be able to play it.
