Movie tie-in to include social features such as friend lists and leaderboards

German free-to-play publisher Bigpoint has partnered with Twentieth Century Fox to develop a new social browser game.
Ice Age Online, which will tie in with the movie franchise, will see users take control of their own sloth and rescue lost animals to build up their own camp.

The game will also include friend lists, leaderboards and the opportunity to compete in a number of challenges with other users.
The free-to-play social title, developed through the Unity engine, is set to release alongside its film counterpart Ice Age: Continental Draft in July.
“We’re excited to work with one of the most successful film franchises of all time,” said Bigpoint CEO Heiko Hubertz.
