Video games giant Activision is gearing up for a summer of licensed action, with the firm boasting a number of top properties in its line-up.

First up is Pimp My Ride on Nintendo's Wii console, which is due for release in May.

This will be followed by the almost guaranteed blockbuster, Lego: Indiana Jones the Original Adventures (pictured). Arriving on June 6th on Nintendo DS and Wii systems, plus PlayStation formats, Microsoft's Xbox 360 and PC, the game will be able to take advantage of the massive hype surrounding the cinema launch of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

Next up will be a title based on Dreamworks' Kung Fu Panda at the end of June (the film hits cinemas on July 4th in the UK). PC, PlayStation 2 and 3, Nintendo Wii and DS, plus Microsoft Xbox 360 versions will all be available.

Finally, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed is also pencilled in for a summer launch. The title will be available on PlayStation formats, Nintendo's Wii and DS, PC and Microsoft's Xbox 360.
