Overcooked 2 game update size
Team17 releases occasional patches and updates for Overcooked 2, which it details in the news blog.

Overcooked 2 data use
Overcooked 2 is less complex than the average game and therefore uses less data. Expect to use less than an average of 50 MB of data per hour playing the game. The number of players in your game, your frame rate, and the tick rate of your server all affect exactly how much data you use.
- The more players in a game, the more data your internet network has to share with other players’ networks. This data includes information like player movement and chat logs. If you play Overcooked 2 with the maximum four players, you’ll use more data than if you play with fewer players.
- A higher frame rate refreshes the game more often, which makes it update faster. With a lower frame rate, you’ll use less data, but it’ll be harder to react quickly to what’s happening in the game. You can adjust your frame rate (measured in FPS) in your game settings. To change your frame rate, you’ll need to disable vertical synch (V-Synch).
- A 128-tick server, which refreshes the game 128 times per second, uses about twice as much data as a 64-tick server, which refreshes the game 64 times per second.
