14th DECEMBER 2018 – Team17, a global games label, creative partner and developer of independent, premium video games in partnership with award winning Indie Studio Ghost Town Games is happy to bring a fun-filled festive update to Overcooked 2. Kevin’s Christmas Cracker is available today as a free gift for all those good girls and boys who have Overcooked 2 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC and Nintendo Switch™.

It’s time to take another trip to the Onion Kingdom, just don’t forget your festive spirit! You can jingle all the way through five new kitchens within a Winter Wonderland world map, cook up three tasty new recipes and meet two seasonal chefs. As ever, the kitchens will be full of calamity, so watch out for moving countertops, icy winds and sinking ice!

The update also sees the introduction of “Practice mode” which allows chefs to get to grips with Overcooked 2 without the usual pressures of the kitchen. In practice mode the timer counts up, allowing you to cook to your heart’s content and there’s even an option to turn it off all together. Fancy an even more relaxed kitchen? You can turn off scores AND order expirations. Practice mode is available for all levels in the base game, Surf ‘n’ Turf DLC and Kevin’s Christmas Cracker update.

“We want to thank all our chefs for their incredible support this year and wish you all a very Merry Christmas!” - Ghost Town Games.

Key features:

New kitchens! Expect plenty of Christmas chaos in the five kitchens in Kevin’s cracker. The snow is falling all around but if you can’t stand the cold, don’t set fire to the kitchen.

New recipes! Who doesn’t love getting stuffed at Christmas? With Kevin’s Christmas Cracker you have a choice of three new recipes to rustle up! Christmas pudding, mince pies and indulgent hot chocolate are on the menu (don’t forget the whipped cream and marshmallows!)

New chefs! Taking a break from making toys, Elf has decided to try his hand at cooking up some festive food. Also, making a merry return is Snowchef, just don’t mistake their carrot nose for an ingredient!

Kevin’s Christmas Cracker is available digitally on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC and Nintendo Switch™, free of charge.
