Connecting to Host is a co-operative and multiplayer gaming podcast. As friends who now live a thousand miles apart, John and Ben let loose their strong opinions about co-op and online gaming. In a typical episode we review a game from a purely co-op perspective but we often do specials to discuss other gaming news or other topics about the bigger picture of multiplayer gaming.
Episode 41. A Way Out
We take up the roles of Vincent Moretti and Leo Caruso, a pair of hardened criminals who have been incarcerated and imprisoned for murder and grand theft respectively. A Way Out is an exclusively co-operative third-person action-adventure game with a strong focus on story and the relationship between the main characters.
There is no single player game mode in a A Way Out and it must be played co-operatively in split-screen mode - either online or local. We discuss our experience having played through the game on our YouTube Let’s Play Show (see https://shyguys.io) so you can decide whether you want to pick up A Way Out or send it to the cooler.
A Way Out is available on Origin (PC) for around €29,99 and for a similar price on PS4 or Xbox One. You only need to purchase a single copy of A Way Out to play with a friend - even online. The second player needs to simply download the trial version of the game and join a host who has previously bought the game.
