Overcooked All You Can Eat, previously only available on PS5 and Xbox Series S|X, is coming to PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC via Steam on March 23.
The game, which was developed by Ghost Town Games and published by Team17, will be available for $39.99 / £29.99 / €39.99, with physical editions being launched for both the PlayStation 4 and Switch versions.
If you’re unfamiliar with the series, it’s all about making the most of a manic kitchen whilst trying to serve up meals. Everything that can go wrong very likely will go wrong. Our very own Tom Orry said “there’s nothing that spreads Christmas cheer worse than playing Overcooked with family members”.
Just in case you needed a glimpse into what the game does for inter-personal relationships.
“Overcooked All You Can Eat plates up all 200-plus levels from both games, including all downloadable content, seven new levels, and a brand-new assist mode, fully remade in up to 4K, and running at a smooth 60 frames per second (30 frames per second on Nintendo Switch),” says a press release from Team17. “Cross-platform multiplayer will also be made available for chefs playing on all platforms in a free post-launch update.”
You will be able to choose from a massive roster of 80 chefs as you set about controlling the havoc in your kitchen, and if you’re a fan of The Muppets, you’ll even be able to download the nonsense-loving Swedish Chef for a limited time if you pick up the game at launch.
Better yet, the developer/publisher duo have added more accessibility options into the title this time around. “Overcooked All You Can Eat also includes new accessibility options and an assist mode, which adds the option to increase level times; boost scores awarded for each meal; lengthen recipe times, and the ability to turn off order expiration,” says the press release. “The accessibility options include colour-blind friendly chef indicators, a scalable user interface and the ability to enable dyslexia-friendly text.”
If you’re a fan of getting murderously angry at your friends whilst trying to sate the appetites of faceless NPCs, this is the game for you.
