It’s time to show off your kitchen skills in the fast paced, rather chaotic, Overcooked!
Available right now on Xbox One (and PS4, PC), Overcooked will send you through a number of wacky kitchens, pushing cooking objectives your way until your brain explodes…or the timer runs out. It’ll probably be the latter though.
Whilst it all works lovingly as a solo player, Overcooked really comes into its own when you team up with a number of friends and become a full team in the local cooperative mode. You’ll need to work together to succeed and for £12.79 (discounted to £10.23 for Xbox Live Gold members) Overcooked brings an unbelievably fun co-op experience.
If that still isn’t enough to tempt you in, then check out our full review. We’ll have a little Let’s Play up for you shortly too!
Overcooked is a chaotic couch co-op cooking game for one to four players. 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!
