Overcooked 2, one of the most fun couch co-op games of the year has a new DLC that’s available to play now and this time, we’re headed to the beach and a few other tropical locations.
The Surf ‘N’ Turf DLC doesn’t go about offering anything too new into the franchise and we’re all ok with that as the format remains as fresh as it did two months ago at launch. This DLC comes with 12 new story levels and offers a handful of new recipes and things to spice up the overall gameplay. The addition of a water pistol is a nice touch and can be used to wash away dirty dishes, to put out fires in the kitchen or simply to upset and annoy your fellow players.
While we cant say we’ve ever had a barbecue on a beach before, you certainly can here and perhaps unsurprisingly, the food cooks quicker the depending on the heat of the barbecue. This all works by a very easy to understand bellows system where a puff or two on these things is enough to get the flames burning your burgers and kebabs with relative ease.
While perhaps an odd time to launch a beach themed DLC given here in Europe the weather is on the turn after a blisteringly warm summer and yet because of this, the warm glow of the on screen antics here is most welcome as the scene outside our windows turns to grey.
