Super Monday Night Combat update allows for Steam trading

by: Nathan -

184 Hours.... thats how long I have been playing Super Monday Night Combat since the open beta that went live about a month ago. Needless to say game has been taking up all my time as of late. If you loved the original Monday Night Combat on Xbox Live then you will love Super Monday Night Combat which is a free to play game on Steam. 

Every week the game is updated and now rule change 5 for Super Monday Night Combat is live and with it bring steam trading. Players now have to trade items with other characters. For those who don't know the game offers tons of way to customize your characters but at the price of real world money. There is one other way to earn cosmetic items which is to earn them in after game prizes however these drops are extremely rare. The game does offer some free cosmetic items so if you have any lying around you don't want then you may be able to trade the items with other players for something you are interested in. 

Trading pros currently isnt available so players don't accidentally trade away their only available pro, but this may be available in future updates. Uber has stated that if it becomes available only duplicate pros will be available to trade. Currently I have 2 Combat Girls. One I bought for $0.99 and one came with a Pro Pack I purchased for $14.99 which came with five different pros.

A plethora of new rules and fixes have been added as well. Check out all of the updates below
