Uber Entertainment's stylized class-based shooter arrives on Valve's platform next month; enters beta Thursday; new content promised for PC version.
Uber Entertainment's adored Monday Night Combat was released on the Xbox 360 in August as part of Microsoft's Summer of Arcade promotion. A class-based stylized shooter, the title draws many parallels to Valve's Team Fortress 2. In January, the two will get even closer.
Uber Entertainment sent word today that Monday Night Combat will arrive on the PC via Steam on January 17. When it arrives, it will sport feature parity with its console cousin but will also boast features exclusive to the PC version.
Dedicated servers, Steam achievements, controller support, "editor support," and unannounced "new features" will come bundled with the Steam edition of Monday Night Combat.
Further, a beta for the Steam version kicks off on Thursday, December 16. To enlist in the sampler experience, gamers must prepurchase the title via the Steam virtual storefront.

this is a fantastic online title!! been playing and enjoying this for months on the 360 now!! kinda like a 3rd person TF2 and lots of fun!! is this gonna be cross platform play i wonder..................?
reminds me a bit of dungeon defenders if thats the case id prefer that unreal engine game to this thing..
@Crashbox45 i dont want to start a pc vs console thing here but just to let you know MNC is a 3rd person shooter not a FPS and ive never played fps's on computers cuz mine have never had the horse power and im a laptop person is it cool
i got MNC and I love it it is a great game but exclusive features FOR PC VERSION why uber why!!!!!!!!!!!!!! better get some exclusive dlc FOR FREE for your loyal console fan base - also love the sunky cola dlc its awesome
If anything valve would extend out a helping hand to the devs of this game becuase that's how they roll
It'll definitely be interesting to see how this game will fare against TF2, but I seem to wonder how Valve will counter Monday Night Combat... That I'll never know.
