Oink oink, mother truckers! It’s the year of the pig and Overcooked 2 looks to be getting into the seasonal spirit with a free content update to celebrate the Lunar New Year!

While the teaser trailer shows us just enough to be interested it’s hard to tell what is actually waiting in store for us… other than it’s free and on the way!
As far as teaser trailers go this one is a little… sparse?! Seven seconds of actual gameplay and not a whole lot else. But let’s break it down- The first thing we can hear is the distinct oriental feel to the music (which retains its Overcooked vibe), the cutest piggy and panda bear chefs, and a beautiful level design including warming lanterns, a calming stream complete with lotus flower, koi, and stepping stones. None of which will be calming enough to stop the inevitable rage when you slip — or are pushed — off into the stream repeatedly.
But what follows the teaser trailer is about 7 seconds of self-promotion, which although fair, definitely inflates the videos run time. It looks like it’s going to be more than it is, and is that not the ultimate tease? The padded bra of the trailer world? Either way, you’re still going to like what you get!
What food we will have to cook, and the levels we are about to barge past our friends in, are yet to be seen. The teaser may only be 17 seconds, but we doubt it will be long before we know more. Given Overcooked’s record of free content, we can be positively optimistic about what’s to come.
Overcooked 2 is now out on Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
