Monday Night Combat receives 'Steamy Valentine' update

There are two distinctly wonderful things included in Uber Entertainment's latest patch for the PC version of Monday Night Combat -- appropriately titled the "Steamy Valentine" update. The first is a cornucopia of Valentine's Day-related new content, including some lovey-dovey character skins, a pink paint job for the game's much abused mascot, and a "Rose Petal Death Effect" for anyone who gets got while wearing the new Valentine's gear. Check out all the new additions and fixes after the jump.

Also posted after the jump is the second of the update's big surprises: A music video, in which Bullseye professes his undying love for Pit Girl in the smoothest fashion imaginable. It is not to be missed under any circumstances.

New Features
  • Added "You are My Pitgirl" Realtime Music Video for all you dreamers out there
  • Added Crimson Gear for all Pros

  • Players will now earn different "Bot Kill Streaks" when killing bots without dying in Crossfire matches
  • Graphics options have been moved out of HostileEngine. You will still have one more graphics reset with this patch, but all future updates should be reset-free.
  • Uber is now shipping a list of banned players. The list has been compiled and vetted by the community and Uber.
