Ice Age Online

Bigpoint and 20th Century Fox have announced plans to launch, Ice Age Online, a game based on the Ice Age franchise. The game will be a free-to-play browser game. The fourth film in the series, Ice Age: Continental Drift, arrives in theaters on July 13, 2012.

In Ice Age Online, players assume 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. Players must rescue the lost animals and build up a camp for them to live. Players also collect precious acorns and construction materials � such as wood, flowers, coconuts, and mud � from locations based on the film franchise. The acorns and materials are used to build camps for the rescued animals to live.

Players can also socialize their characters with options including gender selection, multiple color and fur combinations, special haircuts and headdresses, and a number of wardrobe choices. Player unlock bonus levels as they progress through the game.
