Monday Night Combat update adds Cardboard Samurai outfit, All-Star ratings

Just because you weren't able to make the Bostonian pilgrimage for PAX East doesn't mean you'll be left out of the festivities entirely. Uber Entertainment has launched an update for the PC version of Monday Night Combat which unlocks a decidedly Penny-Arcadey outfit for the game's Assassin archetype: the garments of the honorable Cardboard Tube Samurai.

There's also a new All-Star ranking system, which should let you know exactly how you stack up against the game's other frequent Bullseye-busters. Check out all the new features, as well as a trailer for the CTS outfit, posted after the jump!

  • All-Star Rating System – The All Star system is a system to rate players so that they have more visibility into the overall skill level on each server. The All Star Rating is a continuously adjusting five star rating. Play well, it'll go up. Play poorly and it'll go down. We will improve the system in future updates as we get feedback and data.
  • New Outlander Gear!
  • New Penny Arcade's Cardboard Tube Samurai Uniform for Assassin!
  • New Taunts while wearing Outlander Gear!
  • Fixed issue with grapples after getting knocked into the air
  • Fixed rare case of Assassin getting a back grapple when she is actually in front of her target.
  • Fixed Ping display in scoreboard
  • Dedicated blitz servers immediately end rounds and return to lobby when all players have left the game.
  • Reduced the benefits of armor endorsements for Assault, Support, Sniper and Assassin.
  • New Game Summary display before the end game scoreboard
  • Altered the default Assassin and Sniper builds to include armor endorsements
  • Increased the chance of JuiceBot spawning during a game in honor of PAX East
