So, does playing a new cooperative game with your "player 2" sound like something you might want to do on Valentines Day in 2019, well then this news is for you. The cooperative 2D puzzle platform game Degrees of Separation arrives on various platforms, inclouding the Xbox One, on February 14, 2019.
In addition to offering an experience that’s perfect for solo and co-op adventurers, Degrees of Separation also boasts a narrative crafted by industry veteran and games writer Chris Avellone, known for his past work on Planescape: Torment, Baldurs Gate: Dark Alliance, and Neverwinter Nights 2.

Featuring dual protagonists named Ember and Rime, each with the power to manipulate heat or cold, players must learn to master their respective temperatures as these two unlikely individuals grow ever closer. Tackling themes of closeness and separation, explore a gorgeously realized non-linear world that encourages players to experiment and interact with the environment around them, making use of Ember and Rime’s polar opposite skill-sets, all while seeking a common goal.
While Ember may cause a nearby river to melt, Rime can freeze it over just as easily.
