It Takes Two release date

It Takes Two makes its debut in the gaming sphere on March 26, 2021 and is available for preorder via Steam, as well as the Playstation, XBOX and Origin stores.

Price (US/UK)

The price is currently set at $48 (£35) and gives you and a friend access to the whole adventure. Importantly in order for your friend to participate they have to be able to play online. This requires the respective first-party accounts, as well as an Xbox Live Gold or PS Plus subscriptions.

Trailers

The title’s official trailer was unveiled at The Game Awards in 2020, but had been preceeded by an interview with the game’s Writer and Director Josef Fares.

Official Release Trailer

Narrated by an adorable little Italian book entitled ‘The Book of Love,’ the trailer promises us a magical world where you traverse everything from a winter wonderland ski resort to space time itself.

You do this in the bodies of Cody and May, the adorable couple that are at the heart of this story. Turned into dolls as a magical form as couples therapy, they have to work together on their relationship in order to make their way through the game’s universe.

Friend’s Pass trailer

A trailer dedicated to the Friend Pass has also been released, and it specifically breaks down how the Friend’s Pass will work.

What is it about?

At the core of It Takes Two is the cooperative aspect. The storyline revolves around married couple Cody and May whose relationship, according to the Book of Love, is at an all time low.

Halfway through a divorce, they’ve been magically transformed into two of their daughter Rose’s adorable little woven dolls and forced to work together in order to work their way through the universe.

Meeting a host of colorful characters along the way, It Takes Two promises to be a “light-hearted and touching story” that is the perfect mood booster.

Gameplay

As the title suggests, in order to play It Takes Two you’ll need a friend. The game is purely cooperative, and therefore you won’t be able to play the story alone.

Focusing on split screen gameplay, friends can be invited via the Friend’s Pass which allows them to play the game for free as your partner.

Only the person with the purchased copy can be the game host, and therefore if you want to be the one in the driver’s seat you’ll have to be the one forking out the cash.

It Takes Two platforms

It Takes Two will be available on Playstation 4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S Series, and on PC via Steam or Origen.

Importantly, the game is not cross platform, and therefore to start your co-op journey you need to have the same console or a PC. The game is cross generational, though, so a PS4 player can play with a PS5 player with no issues.

Sneaky Overwatch trick lets Pharah & Mercy easily capture the point on Eichenwalde

Overwatch’s Eichenwalde can be a pretty tricky map to take Point A on, but this perfect Pharah and Mercy combo will help you get a sneaky backcap. 

Pretty much every Overwatch fan knows that the Pharah/Mercy (dubbed ‘Pharmercy’) combo can be a nightmare to deal with. With the Middle Eastern DPS Rocket Boosting herself through the skies, getting pocket healed by our favorite Swiss Medic, the duo can be pretty unstoppable.

While players recently found a fun Junkrat combo that’s the perfect counter for Pharah on Eichenwalde, another Reddit user has found a sneaky backcap tactic that will keep her safe from the Australian’s explosive assault.

So, get ready to grab a Mercy main and take to Eichenwalde, because you might just be able to steal the show.

Pharah & Mercy Eichenwalde trick

A seen in a thread on the Overwatch Reddit, if you run Pharmercy on Eichenwalde then you can sneak around the castle’s exterior wall and sneak onto Point A.

Here’s a step by step guide on how to do so:

  1. Take a hard right when you leave Attacker Side Spawn.
  2. Use Pharah (or Echo) to Rocket Boost around the wall, hugging tight to the buildings.
  3. Follow the wall along until you find the gap in the ramparts by Point A.
  4. Jump on the site and let the chaos ensue.

This trick is perfect because it hides both characters from enemy sight, and also allows them to dodge the notorious choke point that leads up to the point.

As soon as they realize they’ve been duped it’ll force Defenders off the front line, therefore breaking their formation. Alternatively, if they aren’t paying attention then they’ll just drop the objective without even noticing.

On today’s episode of the adventures of a mercy main, I present a Pharmercy duo backcap within 30 seconds of comp round one. Seen stuff like this posted here by others, but honestly never thought it would happen for me lol. Super awesome feeling. from r/Overwatch

If you fancy taking to the beautiful aqua skies of Eichenwalde, then this is the perfect trick for you. Give it a go and see what happens, after all, you’ve got Mercy to keep you safe!
