One of the very best party game franchises is that of Overcooked!. Whether you are playing the original title from 2016, or Overcooked! 2 from 2018, you can be sure of a fun old time, as you and your friends attempt to serve up the most delicious of treats. Very soon though you’ll be able to do this with full cross-play capabilities, remastered 4K gameplay in tow, and some additional never before seen content with Overcooked! All You Can Eat on Xbox Series X and PS5.
Coming from Team17 and Ghost Town Games, Overcooked! All You Can Eat has today been announced as being in development for Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5, with a release planned for later this year.
But what will be included and why should you be going all out for this All You Can Eat edition? Well, Overcooked!, Overcooked! 2, and every morsel of additional content released for both games are being blended together and remastered from the ground up in Overcooked! All You Can Eat. This will mean gamers are treated to a delicious, definitive edition which will include over 200 levels of culinary chaos, seven new levels, three new chefs, 60 frames per second gameplay with 4K resolution, and faster loading times.
The content from Overcooked! has been rebuilt in the Overcooked! 2 engine too, enabling levels from the original game to be played online for the very first time. And best yet, Overcooked! All You Can Eat will also feature additional support for cross-platform multiplayer functionality.
But that’s not all and Overcooked! All You Can Eat will also include new accessibility options and an assist mode, helping any wannabe master chef experience the heat of the kitchen. The latter of these – the assist mode – will include options such as the ability to slow the timeouts on recipes, increase the duration of rounds, and the option to skip levels. The accessibility functions meanwhile include a scalable user interface, dyslexic-friendly text, and colour blindness options.
Overcooked! All You Can Eat Key Features Will 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.
Gemma Langford, Writer and Studio Manager, Ghost Town Games, said: “Phil, Oli and I are thrilled to be working with Team17 once more to bring next-gen platform players fresh versions of Overcooked! and Overcooked! 2. We’ve been overwhelmed by the support and love shown for the series and can’t wait to bring the chaos to new and experienced players alike.”
Max Everingham, Head of Publishing, Team17, said: “Overcooked! continues to be an incredibly important series, one that millions of gamers have taken to their heart over the last few years – it’s a modern classic! For Overcooked! All You Can Eat, we wanted to make sure to deliver the definitive Overcooked! experience that brings every Overcooked! level online and looks and plays better than ever, so we hope so we hope players are ready to get back into the kitchen when the game launches later in the year.”
Overcooked! All You Can Eat will be coming in both physical and digital form for Xbox Series X and PS5 later this year. We’ll be sure to let you know once a confirmed release date is known.
