Assist Mode is perfect for families with younger kids
Well-meaning accidents are all part of the fun of the Overcooked series, but an option to tone down the stressful recipe time limits sure sounds pleasant. In the upcoming Overcooked: All You Can Eat for PS5 and Xbox Series X, there will be an Assist Mode for players who want a more laid-back co-op session.
This trailer runs through the list of accessibility options for the Overcooked + Overcooked 2 remaster.
Assist Mode will let players stop recipes from expiring, meaning you’ll never fail an order because you were too slow or overwhelmed. You don’t have to, but the option’s there and it could be useful for practicing trickier stages. Otherwise, by default, Assist Mode raises the “round timer” for each level, it gives out more points, and it increases how much time you have to make and deliver meals.
Beyond that mode, All You Can Eat also has accessibility features for color-blindness, dyslexia, and a text size scaling. You’ll be able to pump up the subtitles, level descriptions, and other wordy bits.
Another thing I’m excited about: “seamless navigation between [both] games and [all] DLC.”
