Overcooked launched back in August 2016, which means the game is currently marking its fifth birthday. (RIP to all the relationships damaged along the way.) The devs are celebrating with a big, free update loaded with new content – but if you’re sticking with the original version of the game, you won’t see the benefits.
The Birthday Party update for Overcooked: All You Can Eat is now live, adding five new themed kitchens, a new Tabby cat chef, a new cup of tea recipe, and a new switcheroo mechanic. That update is exclusive to All You Can Eat – Overcooked and Overcooked 2 both get a nice discount for the anniversary celebrations, but that’s it.
At least you can check out All You Can Eat for free for the time being, as it’s currently free-to-play on Steam until Wednesday, August 11 at 10am PDT / 1pm EDT / 6pm BST. It’s also discounted by 40% right now, bringing the price down to $23.99 / £17.99 / €23.99.
All You Can Eat hit Steam earlier this year, collecting all the content from both games in a single package along with some new additions, including online play across both games. It was a pretty essential upgrade on the consoles, but over on PC where players are more used to consistent free upgrades, the new version was tougher to swallow.
