A Way Out has already surpassed EA's lifetime sales expectations

A Way Out has already surpassed EA's lifetime sales expectations 

Hazelight's A Way Out was only expected to be moderately successful, with EA predicting that the game would sell 203,000 copies in its first week and 894,000 copies over the game's lifetime.

A few days ago, Hazelight confirmed that A Way Out has sold over 1 million copies, surpassing EA's sales target within two weeks. Not bad for a low budget EA original. 

A Way Out is a co-op only game, where each player takes the role of either Vincent or Leo, two prison inmates who through the game will escape from jail and have a cross-country adventure (The game is called "A Way Out" after all). Gamers can play this game in split-screen or online co-op modes, with both versions showcasing the same split-screen perspective. 

One unique selling point of the game is that fact that online co-op only requires one of the players to own the title, with the other needing a free downloadable client version of the game to play on their system. This unique feature was expected to harm A Way Out's overall sales. 
 
 
 

 

 

A Way Out's success showcases hot well new IP can perform with a low budget, offering a unique gameplay experience and a compelling story, unmarred by loot boxes, DLC or microtransactions.

Its terrible. Bland, pointless and short. What is the point of the logic in some scenarios... example, you need a wrench to pass to your partner, there is one right in front of you on the table but its non interact able...

So much potential and it is wasted. Bit tech did quite a realistic and accurate review. Their previious indy Two brothers was amazing, but this was a disappointment.Quote

I agree that it wasted much potential, but it was nice to see a REAL coop game again. No stupid coop where both players have the same paths and see cutscenes from the exact same angle.

I liked the game very much, might as well be because I was the one with the Friend Pass.Quote
