Bigpoint, in collaboration with Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products has just announced the international open beta launch of Ice Age Online, a new free to play, browser-based MMO based on the hit motion picture franchise that brings together the popular film characters and environment into an adventure game full of cool social features.
“We’re excited to have fans of Ice Age jump into the open beta,” said Julia Salomon, Producer, Bigpoint. “Our team is dedicated to delivering an authentic online gaming experience that is true to the cinematic adventures of Sid, Manny Diego, and Scrat – and we’re confident that fans will be entertained by Ice Age Online.”
Ice Age Online puts players in the role of a sloth who discovers the perfect home for his herd, only to be separated from said herd due to a volcanic eruption. The game tasks the players to rescue lost members of the herd and build camps for their prehistoric animal friends through a combination of mission and jump n run gameplay.
