LOCO is a new breed of online game, blending elements of RTS and third-person shooter to create a unique MMOG experience. Players need quick thinking and even quicker reflexes if they want to bring their team to victory in this epic battle of good versus evil!

LOCO boasts 12 heroes to choose from, each with unique strengths and abilities, including popular charcters like Atin, Foxlady and RandyRozz. Along with LOCO’s existing roster, three powerful new characters are scheduled to be added within the next month: AAKbah—a strong close combat fighter; Ellan Rhineford—a support character with team buffs to support his allies; and Partisan—a fast and merciless assassin capable of battling opponents at any range with high-powered attacks.

In the next few days, burda:ic will also be introducing an additional map for players to ransack as they fight for battlefield domination on behalf of the Army of Hell or the Forces of Nature. The Ruined Arena will be a new playable area for LOCO's Annihilation mode, placing players in a 5 vs. 5 struggle as they try to attain the most kills in a 12-minute team deathmatch.

“Both ourselves and Danal Entertainment would like to thank the entire LOCO community for their continuous help and constructive feedback during open beta testing, we couldn’t have brought the game to its extremely high quality level without their support,” said Ingo Griebl, managing director of burda:ic.“The fight for the Land of Chaos has officially begun, and it won’t be ending any time soon… we have tons of additional features, maps and characters in development to enjoy, so stay tuned!”
