A Way Out is an action-adventure title developed under Hazelight Studios under director Josef Fares who previously released Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons. The video game takes some deep inspirations with the film, Shawshank Redemption, in which players are looking for a means to escape prison.

The narrative follows two prisoners, Vincent and Leo, which will be controlled by two players at all times. Cooperative multiplayer plays an important role in the video game as the title cannot be played as a singleplayer experience.

Instead, two players must go through the title either locally or remote online. It’s worth noting that only one friend must own the game online to enjoy it cooperatively.

In this particular guide, we’re going to showcase just how to acquire every trophy and achievement that is available in the game.
