It’s long been known that if you’re in the market for a great party experience, the Overcooked! franchise is the way to go. In fact, ever since the first Overcooked! rolled out back in 2016, and then the sequel hit home in 2018, it’s pretty much been the go-to party title. But with the upcoming arrival of Overcooked! All You Can Eat on next generation consoles, Ghost Town Games and the publishing team at Team17 are looking to take things further, giving gamers the opportunity to open up a host of brand new options.
Launching later this year on next-gen consoles – Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, PS5 we would assume – Overcooked! All You Can Eat will prove to be the definitive edition of the award winning cooking series. Just now it’ll also come with extra options that will allow chefs of all skills the chance to cook up an absolute feast.
You see, Overcooked! All You Can Eat will bring both a brand-new assist mode and a platter of expanded accessibility options.
The former of these – the assist mode – will include a number of features that tweaks the overall experience, including the ability to increase level times, boost scores awarded for each meal, lengthen the recipe times, and even give the the option to turn off the order expiration. All things that will help massively. Additionally though, the game’s accessibility options will include the ability to activate dyslexia friendly text, include colour blind friendly chef indicators, and run with a scalable user interface.
And if you don’t believe us, check out the trailer that Team17 have served up below. It’ll showcase these very options.
If you haven’t yet played Overcooked! and want in on the action, then the All You Can Eat edition is the way to go. It promises to serve up the definitive edition of Overcooked! and Overcooked! 2, and is being developed to take advantage of the new generation of consoles. In addition to that though, every single one of the 200-plus levels released across both titles and their libraries of post-launch downloadable content – like that found in The Last Morsel and Surf ‘N’ Turf – are being remade and remastered with a visual overhaul that delivers 4K resolution and 60 frames per second. And of course, the game will feature cross-play online multiplayer, new levels and chefs, and freshly baked achievements and trophies to unlock.
Overcooked! All You Can Eat Key Features Include:
- Remote cooking: Cross-platform, online multiplayer means sous chefs can jump in regardless of the platform they’re playing on
- Every mouthful: Includes every piece of Overcooked! and Overcooked! 2 content, remastered and available in 60 frames per second in 4K resolution
- Exclusive new kitchens & cooks: New levels, new chefs, and additional skins for every single chef – all exclusive to Overcooked! All You Can Eat
- Trophies/Achievements: Brand new trophy and achievement sets for players to unlock
- Cooking for all: Accessibility options and a new assist mode opens the game to more players than ever before.
