An online free to play game is to launch alongside Ice Age: Continental Drift, Fox Consumer Products has revealed.
Online game developer, publisher and content provider, Bigpoint is working on Ice Age Online, where players will take on the role of a sloth that recently discovered the perfect place for animals from the herd to live.
Along the way, the herd gets separated and lost, with players having to rescue the lost animals and build up a camp for them to live.
Locations from Continental Drift - which is due to hit cinemas in July - are featured.
"We're excited to work with one of the most successful film franchises of all time," said Heiko Hubertz, CEO and founder of Bigpoint. "We're equally happy to begin working with Fox on this project and are eager to give Ice Age fans another way to enjoy the fun they've had at the movies."
Jeffrey Godsick, president of Fox Consumer Products, added: "Video games and film have an organic connection, and the online game space offers virtually limitless creative opportunities to extend the cinematic experience and the Ice Age brand."
