The next generation of consoles looms, and don't worry, you'll still be able to ruin friendships on it. Team17 announced today that its co-op cooking party game Overcooked is coming in one big definitive edition to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
Shown during today's Day of the Devs stream as part of the Summer Game Fest, Overcooked! All You Can Eat is a double-helping of tandem cooking madness. Every piece of Overcooked and Overcooked 2, including additional content and some new features as well, are stuffed into one new edition for next-gen consoles.
The feature list for Overcooked! All You Can Eat is pretty extensive. Alongside the aforementioned levels of the first two Overcooked games, this next-gen package will have seven new levels, three new chefs, and faster load times, all in 4K resolution and 60 FPS.
The original Overcooked is also rebuilt in the Overcooked 2 engine, so they can be played online with friends to play the original kitchen challenges. And that includes players on other platforms too, as the All You Can Eat version will have cross-platform multiplayer. An added accessibility and assist mode should help every chef contribute too. Assist mode allows players to slow timeouts on recipes or skip levels, while accessibility functions add colorblind options, a scalable user interface, and dyslexic-friendly text.
Overcooked has been a consistently solid co-op game for parties, with equal ability to inspire laughter and ruin friendships. It's had a steady rollout of post-launch DLC since its release, and now, it'll carry forward to cause even more havoc on the next generation of consoles.
No release date has been set yet, and Team17 says there's more to come in the near future. Both the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X are due out this holiday season.
