This generation has seen the release of many unique and zany couch co-op party games. One of the more unique and well-known is overcooked. Team17, the studio behind the game series, has now announced that all of the games, its DLC, and new additions will be coming to the next-generation – including cross-play.
The new release is titled Overcooked: All You Can Eat, and is coming with the original Overcooked, Overcooked 2, all of its DLC, new content, visual enhancements, an assist mode, and online multiplayer with full cross-play compatibility.
The original Overcooked released in 2016 to a positive reception thanks to its simplicity of control, yet high skill ceiling with plenty of challenge. Overcooked 2 followed it up in 2018, improving on the formula through the introduction of online play.
Now, Overcooked: All You Can Eat, will take all the content from both games, and improve it even further, with a 4K resolution, graphical and stylistic improvements, and as previously mentioned, online multiplayer with cross-play for all of the content.
Currently, there is no announced release date, aside from a vague “coming soon”. That being said, as it has been announced exclusively for PS5 and Xbox Series X, it is likely that the title will release some time around the launch of these consoles – with no explicit release date due to there currently being no announced date for the PlayStation 5 nor Series X.
Overcooked offered a unique party-game experience, and it's exciting to see that the studio plans to continue bringing that creativity to the next generation.
