Is my favourite Overcooked chef in the sequel?
Yes! We’ve brought back some familiar Overcooked faces, including fan-favourite Raccoon Chef!

What exactly are “dynamic kitchens”?
‘Dynamic’ kitchens are kitchens that can change on the fly. Be prepared for changes in environment, kitchen layout, and other interferences as you cook your way through the Onion Kingdom!

 

What is New Game+?
Overcooked! 2 features New Game+ which adds a fourth star to the score system. This is an extra challenge for our seasoned chefs who have have achieved 3 stars on all kitchens in the game.

How many players does Overcooked! 2 support?
Overcooked! 2 supports up to four players in either local or online play. On Nintendo Switch, we also support wireless multiplayer for up to four players.

With up to three local players sharing a console it is then possible to also play with other players online. When two or three players are in the game locally, online friends can search for and join the game, or other players can join online through matchmaking.

Are there any limitations to online play?
Several configurations of online players are possible but, due to limitations around the online system’s ability to merge parties, the game does not currently support 2+2 online – that’s two players on one console and two on another. This is something we would have liked to have been ready for launch but is a complicated undertaking and, as such, will take much longer to be ready. Please look out for an update to introduce this feature at a later date.

Can I team up with random players, or do I need to add people to my friends list?
You can use the in-game lobby/matchmaking system to find other players in the Arcade and Versus modes. For the story/campaign mode – you will need to invite players from your friends list to play together.

Will you be patching online multiplayer into the original Overcooked?
Overcooked was designed and built as a local co-op game and therefore the infrastructure for online multiplayer just isn’t there. We have no plans to do this.

Does Overcooked! 2 support in-game chat?
You’ll be able to communicate with team mates via in-game chat on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Players on Steam and Nintendo Switch will need to use a third-party chat service, such as Steam voice chat, Skype or Discord.

You can join the official Team17 Discord, and meet other Overcooked! players, here: discord.gg/team17

I missed out on the pre-order bonus, can I buy the ‘Too Many Cooks’ pack separately?

Yes! There is no need to worry if you were unable to pre-order Overcooked! 2, you can purchase the ‘Too Many Cooks’ pack separately. This DLC pack contains five extra chefs to represent you in the kitchen: Walrus, Monkey, Alien, Calico Cat, and Unicorn! Nintendo Switch players can also purchase an exclusive bonus chef: Platypus!

Why is the Platypus Chef a Nintendo Switch exclusive and will I be able to purchase/download it on other platforms?
The response to Overcooked from Nintendo Switch players has been phenomenal, and we have our dedicated fans all over the world to thank for that!

Nintendo has been a great champion of Overcooked in all regions and worked with us closely on our announcement for Overcooked! 2 at E3 2018 so we thought this would be a great bonus for our passionate Nintendo playerbase.

There are currently no plans to bring the Platypus chef to other platforms.

Are there any plans for DLC?
Yes, we have just released Surf ‘n’ Turf – brand new DLC which contains new kitchens, chefs, recipes and a new piece of kitchen equipment – a water pistol!
