We Were Here Forever is Bringing its Co-Op Puzzling to Consoles

We Were Here Forever

We Were Here Forever, a two-player co-op puzzler where you’re separated from your partner, is getting a console release this January.

The fourth running series in the Were Were Here series, it traps you in the sinister Castle Rock (not the Stephen King one). We mean “you” plural, because like A Way Out, you to work together with your partner. Were Were Here Forever launched on PC in May and is now coming to consoles.

Unlike No Way Out, however, you and your partner spend most of the time apart and there’s no split screen. Instead, you communicate via a walkie talkie, describing what you see, suggesting what to do next and. The puzzles are asymmetric so you won’t both see the same thing, hence the need for co-operation.

It promises 12 hours or so of gameplay so if you don’t work together, you could be there a while. If you want help as to how to succeed, we suggest you watch a few episodes of The Crystal Maze and do your best to be less terrible.

So which platforms is We Were Here Forever is coming to? It’s hitting PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S – sorry Switch owners. And it’ll support cross-play on any platform, PC included, though whether players can get on is another matter.

We Were Here Forever arrives on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 this January 31st. And if you want a taste of what to expect, check out our review of the previous game, We Were Here Together.
