Chaotic Co-Op Game Overcooked out in Early 2016 on PS4, Xbox One & PC

February 11, 2016 Written by Jason Dunning

Built from the ground up with co-op in mind, Overcooked from Ghost Town Games is making its way to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in early 2016.

Supporting one to four players (two players can share one controller) and a co-op drop-in/drop-out campaign, Overcooked takes you across the Onion Kingdom as you and your chefs work together to serve orders before the customers storm out. Throughout the campaign you’ll face challenges that push your co-operation and co-ordination skills, while unlockable competitive kitchens will let you battle against other players.

Ghost Town Games revealed everything you need to know about Overcooked:

Overcooked was designed from the ground up to be a co-operative experience. While some co-op games devolve into a race between players to hoover up loot or a charge to find the next enemy to kill, Overcooked is a game where teamwork is the most important factor. As the orders come in player will need to decide how best to divide the tasks between themselves, and will need to communicate in order to keep on top of the chaos. The controls are simple and setting so familiar that players of all ages and abilities can take part together, but only a well-oiled team with good co-ordination will be able to best each increasingly challenging kitchen.

Key Features

  • An epic co-operative drop-in/drop-out campaign which sees you travelling across the Onion Kingdom, cooking food in increasingly bizarre locations
  • Unlockable competitive kitchens which allows players to go head-to-head against each other
  • A host of unlockable playable characters to discover
  • Share-a-pad: 2 players can share one gamepad to play the game together (4 player gaming on only 2 controllers!)

In addition to the announcement trailer, Ghost Town also showed off a video of Double Fine playing Overcooked:
