burda:ic Launches User-Focused Lobby Redesign for LOCO– Land of Chaos Online

MUNICH - January 25, 2011

burda:ic, a leading publisher of online games worldwide, today announced an update for RTS Action MMO LOCO– Land of Chaos Online that features a slew of in-game user interface improvements, as well as the introduction of an all-new assist system. The update is now available for players worldwide to download upon logging in to the game.

Entering the new LOCO game lobby, players will find that it is now easier than ever to jump into combat. Users just need to press the“Play a Game” button at the top of the screen, and they’ll be on their way to the battlefield straightaway. Similarly, a“Play with Friends” button has been added, making it simple to invite friends and quickly start a game. The team-guild system has also been revamped, allowing groups and guilds to assemble more efficiently for their practice sessions.

Along with these design changes, burda:ic has introduced a new assist system that gives players the chance to nab extra EXP, gold and in-game points in combat. Previously, when a player applied the finishing blow to a monster, only that player was rewarded. With the new assist system in effect, any characters that help to kill an enemy will now also get a cut of the spoils. This is true for all monsters on the battlefield, not just bosses, ensuring that players can quickly amass a ton of loot by helping out their fellow fighters!
