More from the developers

It Takes Two is developed by the award-winning studio Hazelight, who have spent years crafting innovative new ways to experience cooperative play.

A Way Out

From the creators of Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons comes A Way Out, an exclusively co-op adventure where you play the role of one of two prisoners making their daring escape from prison. 

What begins as a thrilling breakout quickly turns into an unpredictable, emotional adventure unlike anything seen or played before.

Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons

Share in the epic journey of two brothers, as they set out to find a cure for their dying father. Travel across beautiful vistas, through dark and foreboding forests, down perilous rivers, up hazardous mountain sides and experience the wonders of Nordic mythology along the way.

Use the unique control system to control each brother with a stick, for concurrent gameplay throughout the adventure. Use both brothers cooperatively to solve puzzles, explore the environments and in boss encounters.

Friend's Pass

Invite a friend to join the adventure in It Takes Two for free*1, even if they don’t own the game! Because whether it’s splitting an ice cream sundae, grabbing a drink, spending the night on the couch, or going on the craziest adventure of your life – everything is better when we do it together. Also, flying through a mob of angry rodents in a plane made of underpants is 1000% more fun when you have a co-pilot.

Frequently asked questions

Friend’s Pass is included It Takes Two, releasing on March 26, 2021. It allows the owner of the game to invite another person to join online co-op with them for free.

Yes. There are some alterations to the implementation, but in spirit, Friend’s Pass allows you to play with a friend for free.

Friend’s Pass offers cross-gen but not cross-platform play. For example, Player 1 can be playiinviteng on PlayStation 5 and invite Player 2 on PlayStation 4. But Player 1 playing on PlayStation 5 cannot invite Player 2 on a non-PlayStation console. The save system also works cross-gen.

Yes. Friend’s Pass is available on all platforms.

Yes, both players will need primary PSN accounts.

Yes. No internet connection is required to play couch co-op.

Yes.

Yes, save progress will be carried over. In addition, if they've joined a game session and the game was saved, it will automatically unlock all chapters up until that point for the joining player. So if Player 2 purchases It Takes Two for themselves and then host a game, they would either be able to continue from their last session's save, or select any of the chapters before that save to play.

Only someone who owns It Takes Two can host their own games. Player 2 won’t be able to play the game through their own incentive, as they don’t own it. They are dependent on playing with Player 1, or being invited by anyone else who already owns the game.

The point where play starts is determined by Player 1's progression. Player 1 would be able to choose whether to start a new game, continue from their previous session's save, or choose from any other chapter Player 1 has unlocked.

Hosts can only invite one friend at a time, but they can invite another friend once the previous friend has stopped playing.

Yes, both players will need a PlayStation Plus subscription to play together online.
