Green is the new black
Some of my fondest memories in gaming were made when I was playing with someone sitting next to me. Whether it’s sticking a mate in Halo split-screen multiplayer, or screaming obscenities about onions during a particularly difficult
Overcooked level, local multiplayer is the best. That’s why we were so excited to get exclusive hands-on access to A Way Out this month. We scooted over to Stockholm to visit Hazelight, play the game, and chat to its creators – you can read all about it on p40. That’s not all, though – this issue is packed. We’ve also got our Xbox GOTY awards (p56), which caused fierce debates and a few tantrums in the office, a gift guide (p64) packed with hardware and merch for your fellow gamers (or yourself), plus all the big interviews, previews and reviews you expect from us. Enjoy the issue, and see you next month.
