Watch the first trailer for My Father My Son, a unique two-player co-op puzzle-platformer for PC about a father and son that can also be played with one person controlling both characters, similar to the 2013 classic Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons.
Players will be able to play alone with a friend in local and online co-op and explore a low-poly 2.5D world. Each of the two playable characters will offer unique capabilities to aid them in solving environmental puzzles, with the father’s height and strength allowing him to break down doors and push heavy obstacles, while the son can fit through narrow gaps and climb to otherwise inaccessible locations. With its emphasis on co-op gameplay and exploring familial relationships, My Father My Son looks like it could scratch the itch for fans who have wanted to see a followup to Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons.
It will be a while still before that can happen, as the game is currently planned to launch next year. On the plus side, though, fans of co-op games have something to look forward to in the near future. Brothers creator Josef Fares and his studio Hazelight will be releasing their next co-op adventure game, It Takes Two, in less than two months, with the game set to launch on March 26.
My Father My Son is slated to launch in 2022 for PC, with plans for PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X ports at some point after.
