Overcooked 2 is a family-friendly game that was released back in 2018. This game is quite addictive and it comes with a lot of features as well.
Overcooked 2 is a multiplayer game involving four players at a time. The best part is you can also play this game solo or team up with your friends online and enjoy cooking dozens of new recipes. Overcooked 2 has won a lot of awards for being a good multiplayer game over time.
However, fans still want to know whether this game is cross-platform or not. If you want to cross-play Overcooked 2 with your friends then you might want to know the answer to this question. So, let’s find out.
Xbox and PS4
At present, this game does not provide cross-platform support between Xbox and PS4 gaming consoles. I know it’s a bit disappointing but you don’t have to worry. Here’s why:
Overcooked 2 is a good game with the best multiplayer support. Even if you and your friend can’t cross-play this game, you can play it together and you don’t need to have the same gaming consoles for that purpose.
All you have to do is to visit each other and play together from the comfort of the couch.
Gaming Consoles and PC
Unfortunately, this game does not offer cross-platform play among gaming consoles (Xbox, PS4, Nintendo Switch) and PC players.
This may be because the console version of Overcooked 2 gets a lot of updates and improvements as compared to the PC version. This creates a version difference of Overcooked 2 among PC and other gaming console players.
Hence, even if the developers were working on introducing cross-platform playing for Overcooked 2, users can’t enjoy the compatibility with PC players. The version difference of both platforms makes it even harder and the game would be entirely different as well.
As long as you and your friend play Overcooked 2 on Steam you guys can easily enjoy it together even if you have different operating systems. Also, you can play Overcooked 2 with your friends on the team by using the co-op feature.
Steam and Epic Games (Different Game Sources):
Overcooked 2 does not offer cross-platform compatibility between different stores (from where you buy the game) on a PC.
You can use the Steam store, Epic Games Store, and GoG store to buy and play games on your PC. But you can’t cross-play Overcooked 2 if you and your crew have bought this game from different stores.
For example, if you have purchased Overcooked 2 from Steam and your friend bought from Epic Games then you can’t play together. This is a great drawback of Overcooked 2 and it has upset many players worldwide.
However, in a recent interview, the developers said that they might introduce cross-platform compatibility in Overcooked 2. Until then you can just wait for that day to come.
