Fox counting on new ’24’ game online

Studio pacts with WildTangent for 'Countdown'

Viewers who can’t wait for next month’s return of “24” can spend their time online pretending to be Jack Bauer.

Fox and online game publisher WildTangent have pacted for “24: Countdown,” a free interactive online game now available on Fox’s Web site. LG Mobile is sponsoring the game in exchange for ad placements within “Countdown.”

Plot of the game has players assuming the role of Bauer, who’s on a high-speed chase to prevent terrorists from blowing up Las Vegas.

Fourth season premiere of “24” is set for Sunday, Jan. 9; another two-hour episode will air the next night.
