Josef Fares, the mind behind the impressive co-op adventure A Way Out, has unveiled the first gameplay trailer for his new title, It Takes Two as part of The Game Awards 2020.
Following the same principle of A Way Out, it seems It Takes Two will be a heavily based around the core idea of working together as the two main characters work on fixing their relationship in unusual ways. The genre-bending adventure is set to arrive on Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One on March 26, 2021.
Much like A Way Out, a friend can dive in for free with the Friend Pass, which offers the ability to download and play with a friend who has already purchased the game.
"Play as the clashing couple Cody and May, two humans turned into dolls by a magic spell.
