Can you play It Takes Two single-player?

It Takes Two, the new game from the makers of A Way Out, is out now, but one question is on players' lips.

They're wondering whether you can play It Takes Two in single-player, or whether it's exclusively a co-op multiplayer game.

Can You Play It Takes Two Single-Player?

In short, no, you cannot play It Takes Two in single-player. The game can only be played in co-op multiplayer either locally via splitscreen or online with another player.

The whole game is designed so that you're working together in a variety of situations, keeping track of what your friend and co-op partner are doing at all times.

Unless you're right next to each other, you'll always be looking at your partner's view as well as your own, no matter if you're playing splitscreen or online.

Friend's Pass

That being said, that doesn't mean you need to ask your friend to buy the game so that you can play it yourself.

Every copy of the game comes with a 'friend's pass' which lets you invite someone to play alongside you. Below is EA's break down of how to do it:

"First, have them search for It Takes Two and download the Friend’s Pass from the PlayStation™ Store. Then, invite them to play with you from the main menu. If none of you own the full game, you can still try out the first level of It Takes Two in both local and online co-op with the Friend’s Pass."



Just do note that It Takes Two multiplayer does not feature full cross-platform multiplayer.

While a PS4 player would be able to play with a PS5 player, and the same for the Xbox platform, an Xbox Series X player wouldn't be able to play with a PS5 player.

It's cross-gen, but not cross-platform, in essence.
