Uber Entertainment Announces ‘Monday Night Combat’ Patch & DLC

Monday Night Combat Patch

Uber Entertainment has announced some details for a huge patch scheduled for their Xbox Live Summer of Arcade title, Monday Night Combat.

While they have not announced a release date, they have listed a number of details from the patch update. For fellow MNC fans this is big, big news! The patch is going to address connectivity issues such as host migration problems to character balances and hit detection issues.

I don’t know how many times I have been killed by spawn-camping-assassins. Sitting on top of the door exiting my spawn point – due to a glitch that allowed them to jump higher than they should. Along with “Speedy Gonzalez” assassins that have infinite sprint due to some other glitch, making them near impossible to kill.

For me, Monday Night Combat, is one of the best Summer of Arcade titles, and for fifteen dollars or 1200 Microsoft Points that is a hell of a deal. Yes Limbo was amazing (and innovative) but, after I beat it, I couldn’t find myself playing it again, let alone a third time. Obviously this is just my opinion, but Monday Night Combat can, and will, have me coming back for more and more due to the terrific online play – whether Co-Op or the team-based versus mode.

So every update and patch that makes the game better, I will welcome with open arms.

Along with announcing the patch, Uber also announced a plan to release three DLC packages for the game. The first will be free but does not yet have a release date. The DLC will have new-content as well as more tweaks and bug fixes.

Monday Night Combat Review

Check out the patch details below:

Connectivity and Multiplayer:

  • Reworked the way we handle parties in the pregame lobby to avoid splitting them up.
  • Fixed several issues where host migration would fail immediately.
  • Decreased wait time after a successful host migration.
  • Lobbies will now host migrate and not kick you back to the main menu.
  • If the host leaves during the end of match sequence, the host will migrate and players will return back to the lobby and not the main menu.
  • Optimized the time it takes to migrate hosts, shortening the time to migrate.
  • Improved weapon hit detection in high lag situations.
  • Fixed endorsements being incorrect after a host migration.

General Gameplay:

  • Fixed players being able to damage the Moneyball’s shields.
  • Fixed visual effects staying on the player after the effect has worn off.
  • Reduced the amount of increased damage the Moneyball takes in Overtime, thus reducing the effectiveness of “Juice rushing”.
  • Fixed Ringouts, Headshots and Grapple Kills not giving the proper amount of money. Balanced Ringout money to reflect the change. Message now displays correct total amount of money earned.
  • New “You Win!”/”You Lose!” UI for the end of a match.
