Xbox LIVE Arcade action game packs a punch with the latest Unreal Engine technology

KIRKLAND, WA – Uber Entertainment today announced it has licensed Unreal Engine 3 for “Monday Night Combat,” its newly revealed action game featuring competitive and co-op team-based fighting. Packed with the latest technical advances in Unreal Engine 3, “Monday Night Combat” is scheduled to storm Xbox LIVE Arcade later this year.

“Monday Night Combat” is a class-based, third-person shooter blending intense combat and finishing moves with game show-like challenges and rewards. Players can fight for cash, fame and endorsements via online multiplayer as well as the extensive career meta game.

“The Unreal Engine has enabled us to get ‘Monday Night Combat’ into a playable and great-looking state faster than any other engine on the market could have. We’re thrilled to be working with it,” said Bob Berry, president and chief executive officer of Uber Entertainment.

“We’re really pleased to see ‘Monday Night Combat’ make great use of Unreal Engine 3’s capabilities for downloadable console games,” said Mark Rein, vice president of Epic Games. “Uber Entertainment has achieved a lot with the game’s development in a short period of time and we can’t wait to play it online.”
