Overcooked 2 has finally released and, as was the case with the first game, it is at its best when you’re playing with some friends. If you want to jump in to see how you fair with a partner, here’s everything you need to know about how to play splitscreen co-op multiplayer in Overcooked 2.
Technically, multiplayer makes the game easier because it allows you to share out the tasks and be more methodical with how you get all the dishes out to the paying customers. However, that’s all down to how well you work as a team. You may be seamless, but you’re more likely to be screaming at each other and inadvertently re-creating some angry Gordon Ramsey memes.
How to Play Splitscreen Multiplayer in Overcooked 2
First of all, to play splitscreen co-op in Overcooked 2, you need to make sure that each player is active, which you can see by them being in the food truck at the main menu.
Simply turn the controller on and press the left and right shoulder button if you’re on Switch (L/R), or A/X for Xbox One and PS4 and the second player will join. You’ll need to do this for each player you want to add, up to four players.
Once everyone is in the food truck and ready to go, player one can then choose which mode to jump into: The Story, Arcade, or Versus.
After a brief loading screen, you’ll be able to choose which level you want to play on before you’re shown the star requirements and thrust into the splitscreen co-op multiplayer action.
You’re all on one screen in Overcooked 2, so it’s not splitscreen exactly, but it’s still local co-op multiplayer.
How Many Players Can Play Overcooked 2 Multiplayer?
You can have up to four players cooking up culinary delights, washing dishes and serving up orders in Overcooked 2. This applies to both the local splitscreen and online multiplayer modes in the game.
Can You Play Overcooked 2 in Single-Player?
Yes, you can. All you need to do is load up the game without turning on and registering any other controllers except for the one you want to use. Then go ahead and jump right into any level you want to tackle solo.
Keep in mind, playing on your own is a lot harder, as you generally have more tasks to juggle and prioritize. Leave one thing to late and you might lose an order, burn a meal, or have a backlog of dirty dishes.
If you and your friends aren’t in the same room, but still have an itching for some culinary chaos, be sure to check out our guide on how to play online multiplayer in Overcooked 2.
