Hazelight Studios officially unveiled It Takes Two this evening during The Game Awards 2020.
It Takes Two is an adventure co-op game that will be released March 26 on consoles and PC.
Developed by A Way Out studio Hazelight, the game follows the couple Cody and May as they learn how to overcome their differences and work together as one. The two humans have been turned into dolls by a magic spell, and trapped in a “fantastical world,” they will face unpredictability and challenges with saving their fractured relationship.
In it, you will work together across a variety of disruptive gameplay challenges such as piloting a pair of underpants or DJing at a club. It features connected character abilities in every new level.
- Pure Co-Op Perfection – As a thrilling adventure built purely for two, players can invite a friend to play for free with Friend’s Pass, tackling ever-changing challenges that can only be solved in pairs. Whether it’s in couch or online co-op with split-screen play, there’s an abundance of opportunities to team up and become an unstoppable duo. Gleefully Disruptive Gameplay – There’s a new ridiculous challenge to overcome around every corner, from rampaging vacuum cleaners to suave love gurus, gangster squirrels to magical snow globes — there’s never a dull moment. The game is filled with genre-bending challenges and new character abilities to master as players experience a metaphorical merging of gameplay and narrative to push the boundaries of interactive storytelling like never before. A Universal Tale of Relationships – Cody and May must learn to overcome their differences as they make their way through an adventure filled with outrageous and touching moments that put the challenge of getting along to the test. With the Book of Love’s Dr. Hakim and other strange yet endearing characters to help along the way, joining forces will lead to an incredible co-op journey.
“At Hazelight, we’re always looking to push the boundaries of what’s expected in games, and It Takes Two is going to make your head spin!” said Josef Fares, founder and game director at Hazelight Studios.
“We’ve taken all our learnings from our previous games and kicked it up a notch, linking the narrative and gameplay mechanics for a genre-bending experience. Players will journey through crazy challenges in a fantastical world, unlike anything they’ve ever seen. It’s going to be completely different from what people have come to expect from a co-op game.”
