Electronic Arts Shows Off Gameplay For ‘It Takes Two’

by Sage Ashford

Electronic Arts’ partnership with video game director Josef Fares (of developer Hazelight, known for Brothers and A Way Out) continues with It Takes Two, and they’ve released a new gameplay trailer for the title.  Another co-op focused title, It Takes Two stars a pair of humans transformed into toys trying to escape a strange world while repairing their fractured relationship.  More below:

“It Takes Two is a co-op action adventure platformer that marries gameplay and narrative in innovative and unexpected ways. The game starts with the divorcing couple Cody and May being magically turned into dolls by their daughter Rose. And just like that, they’re thrown head-first into a fantastical world created as a result of their broken relationship.

Now, they must work together to fix it and get back to normal. Two players will venture through a huge variety of gameplay challenges, gleefully masterminded by Dr. Hakim – a cheesy self-help book on love. The disruptive blend of game genres is a metaphorical reflection of what’s going on in the story. It also keeps the experience fresh and exciting from start to finish.

PURE CO-OP PERFECTION – Invite a friend to join online co-op for free with Friend’s Pass*, and experience a thrilling adventure built purely for two. Choose from online or couch co-op with split-screen play, and face ever-changing challenges where working together is the only way forward.

GLEEFULLY DISRUPTIVE GAMEPLAY – From rampaging vacuum cleaners to suave love gurus – with It Takes Two, you never know what you’re up against next. Filled with genre-bending challenges and new character abilities to master in every level, you’ll experience a metaphorical merging of gameplay and narrative that pushes the boundaries of interactive storytelling.

A UNIVERSAL TALE OF RELATIONSHIPS – Discover a lighthearted and touching story of the challenges in getting along. Help Cody and May learn how to overcome their differences. Meet a diverse cast of strange and endearing characters. Join forces, and go on an adventure you’ll treasure – together!”

It Takes Two releases for current-gen and last-gen consoles and PC on March 26th.
