Some have called Super Monday Night Combat a system hog so Uber Entertainment has tried to fix this problem by updating the engine to Super Monday Night Combat to the most recent version of the Unreal Engine. This update will help PC gamers with low end PC's play the game without framerate issues. This will also allow Uber to do some new things in the future. According to Uber "It's enabled us to take a pass on our shaders and optimize them a little bit for lower end graphics cards."

They have also updated some of the AI for the game so that eliminator bots like the gremlins, bouncers and blackjacks in the jungle will now target the highest level player instead of pouncing on the lower level players killing them

Also rumored is a new pro which may be coming soon to the game. 

The new pro rotation is Captain Spark, Karl, Gunner, Leo, Megabeth and Tank


Free Pro Rotation: Captain Spark, Karl, Gunner, Leo, Megabeth, Tank

The engine update is upon us! We have updated the engine to run a much more recent version of the Unreal Engine. This enables us to do some exciting new features in the future. In the short term it's enabled us to take a pass on our shaders and optimize them a little bit for lower end graphics cards.

Also, over the next week we will be switching out the Steam version for the Uber launcher for all our Steam players. This will result in much smaller patches. Steam will launch the Uber Launcher and then the Uber Launcher will update the game.

Stay tuned for some new developments coming soon!
