PSA: You only need one copy of the game to play A Way Out online with a friend

Hazelight’s co-op prison break-’em-out launched on Xbox One, PS4, and PC on Friday, and according to a report over on Kotaku and confirmed by actual, real people on my Facebook feed, you can play A Way Out online using only one copy of the game. How it works is that the person who owns the game can send an invite to a friend who is prompted to download a free demo version that can only join other sessions, and just like that, you’ve got somebody else to blame when you’re busted. The game also supports local co-op if you prefer to keep your conspiracies on the couch.
