August will mark five years since Team17’s Overcooked burst onto the scene and first earned its reputation as one of the very best couch co-op multiplayer games on any system, and the developer is keen to celebrate the occasion. Today, it has announced that on Aug. 9 there’s a new content update coming for Overcooked! All You Can Eat across all platforms, and it’s totally free.
The news comes by way of a Tweet from the game’s official channel, which appears to be teasing some sort of grand birthday feast. We’ll certainly RSVP!
Go OC, it’s your birthday
We gon’ party like it’s your birthday
& we gon’ sip tea like it’s your birthday
Gon’ make cake & scream, coz it’s our birthday!
We’re turning 5. Would you care to PARTY?!

Overcooked! All You Can Eat released last year alongside the launch of the Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5, and is a compilation and remaster of Overcooked! and Overcooked! 2.
It contains over 200 levels from the two games alongside all previous downloadable content, seven new levels, new trophy and achievement sets, and 80 playable chefs including The Muppets’ Swedish Chef that can be downloaded for a limited time.
The compilation has been remastered to 4K resolution and 60 frames per second for the older consoles, though the Nintendo Switch version will run at 30 frames per second, and will support cross-platform multiplayer in a free post-launch update.
