Team17 has a nice gift for all owners of Overcooked! 2. A FREE festive holiday/winter update has just become available, announced on Twitter. The devs continue to deliver with this spectacular game, adding 5 new kitchens, 3 recipes, 2 chefs, practice mode and enhanced online play that now supports 2 local players teaming up with 2 other local players. The update also includes a number of big fixes, detailed below.
It seems people tend to either love or hate the Overcooked! series. I have a friend whose family spends every get-together playing it for hours, but it just hasn’t sunk in the same way with mine. Personally it just gets a little too difficult and chaotic quickly, but some people understandably love that! Either way, it’s great seeing the care and attention the developers continue to give this game and the undeniable fan base that’s grown.
