The festive season is for relaxing, quality time with friends and family, and eating your weight in delicious food. But someone needs to prepare all that food. In the latest Overcooked! 2 free update, Winter Wonderland, that someone is you. And the horde of festive friends you need to feed get a little bad-tempered when they don’t eat in a timely manner.
The holiday season has started early in Overcooked! 2, with the Winter Wonderland already going live. The update brings with it some seasonal recipes, new chefs, and new enemies for Horde mode. It will also give you a taste of the various DLC packs from 2019.
There are five seasonally decorated kitchens to play get to work in. One comes from Campfire Cook Off, two from Night of the Hangry Horde, and two from the recently released Carnival of Chaos. There are also two new chefs: Reindeer Chef and Present Head Chef. That name means its head is a present, not that it’s the head chef.
Overcooked! 2 Winter Wonderland also serves up four classic seasonal recipes. Dish out hot chocolate to keep people warm and plates of mince pies to give them a taste of the festive season. It simply wouldn’t be a Christmas meal without a roast dinner. Then top it all off with one of the most polarizing dishes ever created, Christmas pudding.
‘Tis the season to get a pass
If you like the samples you get a taste of in Winter Wonderland, then you might want to consider purchasing the Overcooked! 2 season pass. It will give you full access to all the DLCs from 2019, including Campfire Cook Off, Night of the Hangry Horde, and Carnival of Chaos. You can pick it up for $18.99.
Overcooked! 2, including the Winter Wonderland free update, is available for PC via the Steam store.
