Team 17 have revealed that Overcooked 2 will be hitting our consoles on August 7th.
The Onion Kingdom is in peril again and this time it is the fault of the Onion King himself! Reading aloud from the fabled Necronomnomicon, he has cooked up a real problem in the form of a doughy but dangerous army of UNDEAD BREAD called…The Unbread! The Onion King needs you, so chop, fry and bake your way through an all new series of crazy kitchens to defeat them and save the kingdom.
New features for Overcooked 2 include:
Online multiplayer! For the first time you can cook up a storm with up to four players in both local and online multiplayer
Throwing! Throwing is now an official game mechanic, allowing you to toss ingredients to your fellow chefs or even straight into the pan/blender/onto the floor
New level mechanics! Overcooked 2 sees the introduction of new game mechanics including moving walkways, controllable platforms and even portals!
Dynamic levels! Throwing you from the frying pan and into the fire, dynamic levels will change around you, offering a new challenge to overcome as the recipes and levels themselves change!
Interactive world map! As you drive, sail and soar your way around the map in the Onion King’s amphibious air bus you will open up new areas using hidden buttons around the world
Kitchens! From the neon lights of a sushi restaurant to the bubbling pots of a Wizard school kitchen, there are plenty of places to cook up a storm in Overcooked 2!
Recipes! From spaghetti to sushi and pancakes to pizza, recipes both old and new will need to be cooked to perfection (or at least not burnt to a crisp!) New recipes mean new ingredients and new equipment so even the most well-seasoned Overcooked players will be challenged.
Chefs! Overcooked 2 introduces a whole host of new of chefs to play in the kitchen including an eagle, mouse, beaver and what kitchen is complete without an octopus!
This will be getting some stream time on the site, can you imagine the arguments!?
Nioh 2 got a quick reveal teaser in the Sony E3 2018 press conference. A really quick teaser. I’m sure it’ll pop up online shortly, but as of yet nothing, and my bed beckons. I’m sure we’ll have an update in the near future, but until then the take away is simply that Nioh is getting a sequel, yay!
A third-person action game with physics manipulation, possibly also some time manipulation, was shown off at the E3 2018 Sony press conference. A new title called Control from Remedy. It looks a bit Quantum Break to us, which makes sense with Remedy. You can check out the reveal trailer below:
The Sony E3 2018 press conference delivered some more Spider-Man footage, revealing several classic villains will be involved in the adventure. And with the title hitting shelves in a few weeks, we won’t have to wait long before we can swing around dish out justice as everybody’s favourite, friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man. Check out the footage below:
Sony have delivered on the gameplay footage we’ve all been waiting for, footage for Kojima Production’s Death Stranding.
It looks gorgeous, eerie and confusing, precisely what we expected. A few more story and setting details were revealed in the footage but so many questions still remain. A new cast member has also joined the production, Lyndsey Wagner. Check out the footage below:
Rick and Morty creator, Justin Roiland, brings us a new comedy sci-fi game for PSVR and PS4, Trover Saves the Universe, developed by Squanch Games, we see what you did there. Check out the reveal trailer below:
New footage was revealed of Sucker Punch’s Samurai adventure game Ghost of Tsushima.
A beautiful field full of flora and fauna, followed by a dark forest and some glorious combat means to, and succeeds in, whetting our appetite. A little storytelling, some fluid parkour, a takedown and parry system not unlikely the Batman Arkham games, followed by a dash more storytelling and one-on-one combat, and the footage came to a close.
