Gameloft And Tencent QQ Games Team Up To Bring 'Ice Age Village' To China's Android Market

PARIS, January 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Gameloft®, a leading global publisher of digital and social games, today announced its partnership with the Tencent Mobile QQ Game Platform, the most popular Chinese mini casual game open platform, for the exclusive publishing of the Android version of Gameloft's most successful social game, Ice Age Village, in Mainland China.

Tencent has grown into one of China's largest and most used Internet service portals. Today the Tencent Mobile QQ Game Platform has over 350 million registered user accounts, making it one of the biggest online game communities worldwide.

Ice Age Village is a social simulation game resulting from an exclusive agreement between Gameloft and Fox Digital Entertainment. Since launching worldwide last April on the App Store and Google Play, the game has been downloaded over 40 million times (over 10% of downloads originating from the Chinese App Store). The game has been #1 in the Top Free Games category on the Chinese App Store with a substantial number of 5-star consumer ratings.

Ice Age Village offers players the ability to immerse themselves in the unique world of Twentieth Century Fox's Ice Age, one of the most successful franchises in animation history. Players interact with beloved heroes such as Sid, Manny and Diego, while simultaneously playing through a series of quests and mini-games featuring everyone's favorite saber-toothed squirrel, Scrat.

" We ar e thrilled to be  partner ing  with Tencent   for local distribution of  the Android version of Ice Age Village ," said Gonzague de Vallois, Gameloft's Senior Vice President of Publishing. " It is one of  Gameloft ' s major initiatives for our  Android publishing strategy in  China .  By leveraging Tencent ' s  huge  user  base ,  we  are  truly  able to provide  the best gaming experience to more Chinese gam ers.
