Overcooked 2 Lets Players Make Dinner as a Unicorn, Alien, and More If They Pre-Order


Looking for some tasty co-op fun this summer? Well, you definitely want to add Overcooked 2 to your menu. The first Overcooked was, no exaggeration, one of the best same-couch co-op experiences ever, and the sequel promises to deliver more of the same. Those who pre-order the game get five exclusive chefs – specifically, Calico Cat , Monkey, Unicorn, Walrus, and Alien chefs (Overcooked doesn’t restrict the foodie fun to any one species). Check out a trailer for the pre-order chefs, below.

  • Kitchens! From the neon lights of a sushi restaurant to the bubbling pots of a Wizard school kitchen, there are plenty of places to cook up a storm in Overcooked 2!
  • Recipes! From spaghetti to sushi and pancakes to pizza, recipes both old and new will need to be cooked to perfection (or at least not burnt to a crisp!) New recipes mean new ingredients and new equipment so even the most well-seasoned Overcooked players will be challenged.

I’ve been testing out Overcooked 2 for review, and the first game’s winning recipe still holds up. Definitely keep your eye on this one!
