How to Play Splitscreen Co-Op Multiplayer in Overcooked 2
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. Technically, it 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. 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.
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.
