As you’d expect with a new game from Josef Fares and the team at Hazelight, It Takes Two is co-op focused. The game places you and your co-op partner in the shoes of a couple going through a divorce. However, in an odd twist, you both have your minds transported into dolls made by your daughter. You must work together to get back to your real-world bodies.
It’s an intriguing premise that really opens up the doors in terms of gameplay. With a much more fantastical setting than the grounded A Way Out, Hazelight has a ton of leeway with what players can do. I will say that, as a child of divorce, I really hope we don’t just get a perfect happy ending. I don’t think Hazelight would do that, but it’s giving me pause nonetheless. That said, I’ve liked all of Fares’ other work so far. I’m more than willing to give them the benefit of the double until I can check it out for myself.
The Game Awards kicks off at 6 PM CST on December 10. If you can’t tune in, make sure to stick with DualShockers. We’ll have all the big news for you as it comes in.
