‘Unravel Two’ Is Out Now And It Has Adorable Yarny Co-Op

“Unravel Two” is officially out now on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, developer Coldwood Interactive announced Saturday during publisher Electronic Arts’ E3 2018 press conference. And, this time, two people can play cooperatively.

The platformer sequel builds off of the original game and centers on the bond between two Yarnys. It can be played solo or via local drop-in/drop-out co-op. The two Yarnys will need to support one another as they work through puzzles and explore beautiful natural landscapes and intricate urban environments, Coldwood said.

“’Unravel 2′ is about the new bonds that form when we cut ties to the past,” said Martin Sahlin, creative director at Coldwood. “Like ‘Unravel,’ it is a deeply personal game for the studio and our passion and life experiences are intertwined in the fabric of the journey players and their Yarnys will embark on. ‘Unravel Two’ is about the unbreakable bond between friends and how hope and love can make the world around us a better place.”

“Unravel Two’s” appearance during EA’s show was expected after fans noticed it was recently rated by the Entertainment Software Ratings Board (ESRB). But, the fact it launched Saturday as well is a nice surprise.

Coldwood and EA released the first “Unravel” in 2016. Critics praised it for its charming visuals and adorable Yarny mascot, but many felt the platforming was a bit lacking. Although there are no exact sales numbers available, the game did well enough that EA announced in May 2016 it was extending its partnership with Coldwood Interactive and working with the studio on its next project. While the announcement didn’t mention “Unravel” by name, an EA representative confirmed to PC Gamer at the time that “this will be for the next ‘Unravel.'”

“Unravel Two” costs $19.99 and is available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Origin for PC. EA Access and Origin Access members can play the beginning of the game starting today.
