There's a lot going on in Super Monday Night Combat, and we wish we could help explain to you what it is, beyond the obvious (a free-to-play five-on-five multiplayer shooter). For now, just look at all the pretty colors accompanying the fast-paced carnage in the video above, uploaded by a redditor.

A sequel to the original Monday Night Combat, SMNC's currently in beta, though the NDA has just been lifted—meaning we get to see videos like this one. It's slated to come out early next year, and like we said, it'll be free to play, a model that seems to be working for more and more developers. Do you think it's valid, or would you rather just pay your $60 up front and not be plagued by microtransactions? Let us know in the comments or on Facebook or Twitter.
