Overcooked 2 announced with new trailer
Overcooked 2, the sequel to the fun, frantic cooperative multiplayer cooking game, is coming later this year.
Just like in the first game, expect tons of chaos as you’ll have to deal with stage hazards like fire, water and shifting layouts, all while chucking ingredients around and yelling at your friends for being too slow. Overcooked 2 serves up plenty of new twists on that simple formula as well.
With the addition of online multiplayer, the game has also had the difficulty increased. The speed at which orders fly in combines with the new level layouts and other challenges to make it very challenging as a whole. And now you will be yelling at people all over the world rather than that lazy punk on the other side of the couch. There’s lots of new levels too, like baking cakes on an alien planet, so expect plenty of interesting new menu types in the sequel.
Those levels also change over time as well. One preview build showcased a hot air balloon burger joint that crashed its way into a sushi shop over the course of the same level. Sounds like tons of insane fun to me.
Overcooked 2’s Aug. 7 release date applies on PlayStation 4, Switch, Windows PC and Xbox One. Check out the trailer for the chaotic co-op cooking title down below.
