Overcooked! 2 Takes Players to the Carnival of Chaos Next Month
Overcooked! 2's final DLC pack takes players to the Carnival of Chaos on September 12.
Since its release in 2018, Overcooked! 2 has taken intrepid chefs to all kinds of crazy places. We’ve gone to the woods to participate in the Campfire Cook-Off and combated the unbread forces of the Hangry Horde. Now, we’re getting a bit of reprieve from the zombified insanity and going to the carnival in Team17’s newest DLC. Veteran cookers will be happy to know that they’ll have the Carnival of Chaos in their hands in just a few short weeks. Check out the new reveal trailer below.
Details about new mechanics coming with the third DLC pack are scarce right now. However, we can glean a few cool possibilities from the short trailer. We see a statue with two moving arms, each of which holds a roasting marshmallow. It’s easy to imagine a mechanic where your cooking fire is moving around on these statues and you have to carefully plan how a carnival hot dog is cooked. We also see a player being launched through the air toward the end of the trailer. This could be a way to send other players across the kitchen by using one of those strongman mallets.
And of course, that’s just the tip of the iceberg. The Hangry Horde introduced quite a bit of new content and, with this being the final part of the season pass, you have to imagine the team is going all out. Hopefully, we’ll know exactly what’s coming in the next few days.
Overcooked! 2: Carnival of Chaos will be out September 12 on Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
