MUNICH - October 20, 2011

alaplaya, the leading international free-to-play gaming portal, today announced that its popular tactical MOBA-RPG, LOCO – Land of Chaos Online, will be transforming into a new form, LOCO: Evolution, later this year alongside the most massive content update the game has ever received. Additions and improvements coming to this new evolution of the hit free-to-play title include an all-new persistent city, a new faction, new heroic (and not-so-heroic) characters, new modes of play, a greatly improved tutorial and UI which will make the game more accessible to players both hardcore LOCO veterans and casual players, and more.

“We just got finished with LOCO’s first anniversary celebration, and in that first year, over 500,000 players joined us for the ride,” said Achim Kaspers, Managing Director of ProSiebenSat.1 Games. “We’ve all had a fantastic time watching LOCO change and grow, and LOCO: Evolution is our way of re-affirming our commitment to the game through consistent development and refinement of our unique worlds and gameplay. Long-time players can count on big new additions and surprises, and there’s plenty more to come… so stick around!”

LOCO: Evolution will add a third faction to the game, the less-than-angelic warriors of Heaven, plunging the Land of Chaos into a bitter struggle between the forces of Nature, Heaven, and Hell. When not engaged in brutal combat, players will also be able to visit the new persistent in-game town of Arhonnas, where combatants can chat with one another and visit with several new NPCs, receiving quests, learning about the game world, and shopping for new gear. Once those tasks are finished, LOCO players will definitely want to sample Touchdown, an all-new football-inspired game mode. All of these features, and more, will be added to the game when LOCO: Evolution launches in Q4 2011.
