Thursday, 23rd January 2020– Team17 and Ghost Town Games are excited to usher in the Chinese New Year with a free update for Overcooked! 2, out now on PC and consoles. Two new playable characters will be added to the roster of chefs – a turtle and a rat – and five new themed levels allow players to chop, cook, and simmer their way to success.  Dim sum, hot pot and fruit platters will also be making their way back onto the menu.

Key Features

New Chefs. Normally rodents shouldn’t be allowed in the kitchen, but as it’s the Year of the Rat we’ll let it slide. Rat chef is ready to rustle up some fresh festival food alongside Turtle Chef, who is anything but a slow cooker!

New Levels. There may be a runaway dragon leaving havoc in its wake, but that doesn’t mean the cooking can stop. Players will work their way through five new levels all created around the Spring Festival theme.
