Just ahead of PAX East 2011, the team at developer Uber Entertainment have just released a new PC version update for its multiplayer action game Monday Night Combat. The update, via Steam, has some neat content additions, including being able to outfit the game's Assassin character in Penny Arcade's Cardboard Tube Samurai.

Other new additions include new Outlander gear for your team (complete with new taunts) and a new All-Star player ranking system where players can guage how good of a player they are compared to other players on a server. Your player rating will automatically adjust; if you are on a killing spree your rating will go up. If you keep getting killed the ranking will go down. You can check out the new content for the game at the trailer after the jump:

If you are attending PAX East 2011 this weekend you can drop by the Uber Entertainment booth and get access to a code that will unlock an exclusive Authentic Battle Damage version of the Cardboard Tube Samurai outfit. You will also see a preview of an upcoming new map, Uncle Tully's Funland.

Monday Night Combat celebrates Valentine's Day with new update and video

Monday Night Combat is a game that has a bit of goofy humor in it anyway and this week the multiplayer shooter's developer team at Uber Entertainment decided to make a little love, not war, with a new content update via Steam. The update adds some Crimson Gear for all of the game's Pros. It also adds a "Broken Heart Headshot Effect" for anyone playing the Sniper and wearing the Crimson Gear. There's also a new "Rose Petal Death Effect" for any Pro wearing the same gear.

But that's not as fun as the newly added music video "You are My Pitgirl" as we get to hear how someone just love the female member of a Monday Night Combat team. We have to agree.

Review: Monday Night Combat

Team Fortress 2 has been the undisputed champion of team-based, competitive multiplayer chooters. With characteristic classes, high-octane gameplay, and continued support from the developers, it's no wonder that TF2 has gone on to become one of the biggest games on the PC. However, they certainly don't have a monopoly on this sort of creativity, and upstart Uber Entertainment has managed to deliver an incredible freshman game that is on par with, if not better than, TF2. Monday Night Combat is a polished masterpiece, and despite a few nagging issues, it remains the best multiplayer shooters we have played in almost four years.

Monday Night Combat trailer crosses over with more franchises

Monday Night Combat is one of the better multiplayer shooters out there, and it's finally left beta on the PC. To commemorate the occasion, the developers at Uber Entertainment have released a launch trailer that shows off almost every aspect of gameplay. In addition, they have also crossed over with two other incredibly popular franchises: Team Fortress 2 and Penny Arcade. This trailer shows off the different additions to both MNC and TF2, as well as the new Penny Arcade bot. Let's just leave it that it's mildly not safe for work.

Interview: We chat with Uber Entertainment about Monday Night Combat PC

The Washington State-based game developer Uber Entertainment got a surprise hit on its hands with its first game Monday Night Combat. The interesting mix of third person shooter combined with a futuristic sports-game show motif, plus a healthy dose of humor, made the game a best seller when it was released for the Xbox 360's Xbox Live Arcade download service last summer.

But it looks like PC gamers will be able to benefit from Uber's decision to bring the game to the PC platform. The title, which is available via pre-order on Steam, will have a number of features that the Xbox 360 version didn't have such as dedicated server support, upcoming editor support and more. Plus people who pre-order the game before its January 17 release can go ahead and play the beta version right now.

Big Download got some more info about the PC port from Uber's executive producer and art director Chandana "Eka" Ekanayake, including hints about post-release content updates and more.
