The start of each and every month signals the time gamers get excited for new free goodies and the Xbox Games With Gold scheme is once again delivering. And what a game we kick October off with – as the rather brilliant party cooking title Overcooked gets stripped of the usual price tag.

Available for free from now until the end of October, Overcooked from Team17 is quite possibly one of the very best cooperative party titles available on the market. Yes we have just seen it’s sequel arrive – and if you’ve got a bit of spare cash in the wallet than a purchase of Overcooked 2 is highly advised – but for free, this is a bit of a stunner.

But what is Overcooked? Well, usually priced at £12.79, this Xbox One title tasks you and your friends with kicking up a storm, creating delightful dishes for the diners who make their way to your crazy restaurants. Whip up the meals quickly and you’ll get paid handsomely – and with the Onion Kingdom in danger should you fail, each and every plate you serve is an important one.

Frying steaks, chopping onions, tossing salad and working together is par for the course in Overcooked and if you have a few friends to hand will find one of the very best cooperative multiplayer experiences on the market. That doesn’t mean you can’t play alone though – for you can – it’s just everything is that much better with a busy kitchen to control.

If you have a valid Xbox Live Gold subscription then you should be downloading Overcooked immediately. If you don’t have one, then it may well be worth forking out just so you can get in on the action.

Just make sure you don those aprons before the end of October 2018, yeah!?

Game Description:

Working as a team, you and your fellow chefs must prepare, cook and serve up a variety of tasty orders before the baying customers storm out in a huff. Sharpen your knives and dust off your chef’s whites, there isn’t mushroom for error and the steaks are high in these crazy kitchens! The Onion Kingdom is in danger and only the finest cooking can save it! In Overcooked players must journey through a variety of cruel and unusual kitchens on their quest to become master chefs capable of conquering an ancient edible evil which plagues the land. Play solo or engage in classic, chaotic couch co-op for up to four players in both co-operative and competitive challenge modes. You’ll have to cook a range of different dishes and work together in order to become the most effective and ultimate team! Key Features: A Culinary Quest – The Onion Kingdom is a rich world full of cruel and unusual kitchens for you to conquer. Take part in an epic journey and tackle an increasingly challenging and bizarre gauntlet of kitchens which will push your skills of co-operation and co-ordination to the very limits. Each level brings a new challenge for you and your team to overcome, whether it’s sliding around on a pirate ship, moving between speeding trucks, cooking on an ice floe or serving food in the bowels of a fiery underworld, each level will test the mettle of even the bravest chefs. Simple Controls/Deep Challenge – Overcooked is so easy to pick up that anyone can join in the fun, but finding a team who can communicate and co-ordinate their actions when the pizza hits the fan, that’s when only a well-oiled team of super-chefs will come out on top! Different Ways to Play – Whether indulging in deep fried local co-op or sautéed single player, as you play through the game you’ll unlock new levels, new chef characters and even competitive challenge levels which allow teams of two to engage in hard boiled head-to-head in the kitchen. However you want to play, if you think you can stand the heat, then get ready to enter the kitchen!
