Team17 have released a video comparison for Overcooked! All You Can Eat, their upcoming next-gen remaster of the hugely successful culinary co-op series. The remaster bundle will be out for PS5 and Xbox Series X|S later this year.
The side-by-side video shows off a slew of levels and how they’ve been packed with more detail, enhanced lighting, graphical effect and more.
Underneath it all, there’s over 200 levels, as the bundle gathers together Overcooked!, Overcooked! 2 and all their DLC, but while it’s the first game’s content that will benefit the most here, there’s a big step forward for the second game as well, thanks to the new lighting and shadow detail. The whole game runs in 4K and 60FPS on PS5 and Xbox Series X, as well.
Beyond that, loading times will be lightning fast, there’s a new set of trophies and achievements to earn, and there’s now cross-platform multiplayer across the whole game – online multiplayer was only introduced for Overcooked! 2.
Helping newcomers to the game with be the new assist mode that will let you slow the timeouts on recipes, lengthen rounds, and just skip levels outright. To be more inclusive, new accessibility options add a scalable UI, dyslexic-friendly text, and colour blindness options. All of these things are great to see, when other titles like Moving Out have helped reduce the bar for entry quite significantly from the game that inspired them.
Team17 have decided to sidestep the arguments over free and paid cross-gen releases with this remastered bundle, which is a paid, standalone release. It’s worth remembering that the first game released way back in 2016, while its sequel came out in August 2018 and has been supported and expanded with free content since.
Overcooked! All You Can Eat will be out both physically and digitally for PS5 and Xbox Series X later this year.
