Today, Electronic Arts and Hazelight Studios have officially revealed that It Takes Two, a platform adventure game created especially to be a collective experience, will be available on March 26, 2021, for consoles and PC.
Developed by the industry leaders in cooperative gaming, It Takes Two is the latest title from Hazelight, the BAFTA award-winning studio with A Way Out. Featuring unique and varied gameplay and an engaging and interconnected narrative on a fantastic journey, the game follows the couple Cody and May as they seek to learn how to overcome differences and work as a team as one. It Takes Two puts players on a turbulent and wonderful ride so that they discover that there is only one surprise: we are better together.
“At Hazelight, we are always looking to push the limits of what is expected from games, and It Takes Two will tie your head in a knot!” said Josef Fares, founder and game director at Hazelight Studios. “We took everything we learned from our previous games and improved the level, connecting narrative and game mechanics to create an innovative experience. Players will take a journey through crazy challenges in a fantastic world, unlike anything they have ever seen. It will be completely different from what people expect from a cooperative game!”
“We are very excited to be working with Hazelight on their second release at EA Originals,” said Steve Pointon, Senior Vice President of Content and Development 3rd Party at Electronic Arts. “Hazelight has a unique storytelling method that unites gameplay and storytelling, leading to a deeply engaging and exciting experience. We can’t wait for everyone to experience first-hand the innovation, talent, and skill with which they created this game”.
