If you logged into FarmVille tonight, you were most likely greeted by this new loading screen promising a new Rio farm. Rio is a new Blue Sky Studios/Fox movie from the same folks who made the Ice Age animated films. The movie follows a macaw named Blu as the main character as he journeys to his homeland in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and learns about his ancestry. It's an interesting match-up for FarmVille, a game that doesn't really conjure up images of a tropical location. It seems like Treasure Isle would be a better fit for a Rio promotion.
Nonetheless, this new Rio farm does not seem to be rolling out to players just yet. However, we're promised two exclusive prizes for visiting it, so we're looking forward to it launching.
