Overcooked! 2: Night of the Hangry Horde DLC Adds a Diabolical New Horde Mode

Overcooked! 2 - Night of the Hangry Horde introduces a brand new horde mode that is sure to test even the most veteran of players.

Overcooked! 2 developers Ghost Town Games took to the Nintendo Treehouse stage to demo everything new coming to the new Night of the Hangry Horde DLC. The meat of the DLC is the new horde mode that tests all of your culinary skill in a mad cooking frenzy. You can watch the full gameplay reveal below.

Horde mode sees players fighting back against the returning unbread hordes. Each of the eight missions happens over a number of waves. As a wave progresses, enemies will slowly make their way to your barricaded kitchen. Each time you finish an order, you destroy that monster, saving you from their rampage.

If a monster makes it all the way to one of your kitchen windows, they will begin beating down the boards that form the barricade. If those boards are ever fully broken, your kitchen begins taking damage. Once your kitchen’s health reaches zero, you lose. Fortunately, you can spend cash you’ve earned from completing orders to repair the barricades.

The unbread aren’t the only enemies you’ll have to fight back. There are also hot chili peppers that attack much faster than normal enemies and rotten apples that pack a massive punch. You’ll also have three new recipes to learn, four chefs to unlock, and a couple of new mechanics to master (the guillotine looks particularly fun).

The best news? All of this is out today. Go pick up Overcooked! 2: Night of the Hangry Horde on Linux, Mac, Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4, and Xbox One now. And stay with DualShockers for all your E3 news.
