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.



Oooo. Might pick this up. Looks pretty cool and I always find 3rd person to be much more friendly that 1st.

I would try Team Fortress 2, but I'm bad at FPSs at the best of times, with a Keyboard & Mouse I'm even worse. I can't see there being that much of a welcoming for my noobish skills when TF2 has built such a strong fan base.
