Monday Night Combat Smashes Keyboards, Releasing On SteamS

Monday Night Combat, one of the year's surprise hits on Xbox Live Arcade, will be released on PC next month.

While a first glance may have you wondering why, since being a cartoon-based team shooter it's firmly on Team Fortress 2's turf, you're not being very fair. Monday Night Combat is its own creature, as much a fast-paced game of tower defence as it is a straight-up shooter.

If you pre-purchase the game on Steam now, you'll get access to the beta which begins on December 16. If you want to wait, the game's proper release date is January 17.

We reviewed the Xbox 360 version earlier this year, and liked it. A lot.
