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.
