Ah, Christmas... That time of year where the whole family gets together, prepares a lovely selection of scrumptious festive foods, and lobs an absolute bucket load of marshmallows at each other from across the kitchen. Hang on a sec...
Yes, that particular combination can only describe the frantic multiplayer action of Overcooked 2. Team17 recently teased some 'Free-zing' new content for the game, and today sees that content be revealed and released under the name of 'Kevin's Christmas Cracker'. The best news? It's all available for free.
You'll be jingling all the way through five new kitchens within a Winter Wonderland world map, cooking up three tasty new recipes, and even meeting two new seasonal chefs. As ever, the kitchens will be full of unrivalled chaos; keep an eye out for moving counter-tops, icy winds, and sinking ice.
If that wasn't enough for you, the update also sees the introduction of a 'Practice mode' which allows chefs to get to grips with the game without the usual stress. In this mode the timer counts up rather than down (and can even be turned off completely), allowing you to cook as much as you like. If you want to take things a step further, you can actually turn off scores and order expirations for a completely relaxed playstyle. This mode is supported across all levels in the base game, Surf ‘n’ Turf DLC, and this new Kevin's Christmas Cracker update.
Do you still enjoy the madness of Overcooked 2's kitchens? Will you be jumping back in to check out this new, free content today? Let us know with a comment.
My favourite price
Have been looking to pick this up as of late and now seems like the perfect excuse to nab it.
@misterMike me and the wife were paying the first one but it got hard quick. Got about 45 stars but it's hard to get any more to move on.
This one looks better with the throwing of the food etc tho.
Love it. Great little game
Yay, free updates !
Grab this now. Really fun game and its currently on sale i believe.
@SpookyPotato Is it? Thought it was 19.99 standard?
Is this a patch update or a free DLC? How do I get it?
@Kidfunkadelic83 sorry my bad! Thought i saw it on the eshop holiday sale!
@SpookyPotato I wish it was. Been waiting ages for a sale to drop on this one.
I hope it's challenging. My gf birthday is today so this is perfect. We are always looking for an excuse to head back to the kitchen.
@Kidfunkadelic83 let me tell ya that getting past 45 stars is the only way to know if your marriage will last or not
We almost got a divorce because of this game (kidding) but I'm sure that after getting 3 stars in every level, nothing can have an impact on our marriage
@Kidfunkadelic83 I got it on release day as a physical and never looked back. One of the best couch co ops on recent years.
@Kidfunkadelic83 My experience is that the first Overcooked had awkward difficulty spikes and too many levels in a row with similar challenges we happened to find annoying.
Overcooked 2 has been a joy with a much more balanced difficulty ramp up and because they mix up the variety of challenges much better it has just been more fun and hard to put down. You get the feeling that if you just get through this one, the next will be very different.
And throwing is, indeed, really fun.
This update looks awesome and right when families should get to spend a little time together. Can't wait to show my wife.
