Finally, this is the news everyone was waiting for. The current Open Beta will be closed tomorrow morning at 8am (GMT+1) and we are going to open the servers for commercial launch after a maintenance. This may take a couple of hours and the servers will be back online during Thursday afternoon. We are going to keep you updated in the forums and chats. So be advised to stay tuned and take part of the first hours in LOCO!
Thanks a lot to all for the great feedback and support we could collect during the Closed and now open beta. We got a lot of very productive suggestions from you and now we can present a really nice commercial version of LOCO – Land of Chaos online.
Each hero can look different and much cooler than you can imagine. These absolutely awesome costumes for each hero will be available in the AP shop. Just have a look around and you will quickly find out that they are a “must-have”. In addition to this ultimate cool style these costumes add 50% more Coins (which is the ingame-currency) to your income after each finished match
New Map (Prospect):
The “Ruined Arena” is the place where the ancient warriors of the old age met once a year to fight each other for honor. Now this arena has become core of the war “Purgatorium” versus “Nature”. This map will be implemented next week. Please be patient.

There will be three additional heroes available in LOCO which will be patched during the next weeks. Have a quick look to this video which introduces those three new fellows.
