Funcom has received a grant for $260,000 from the Norwegian government’s Norsk Film Institutt to aid the development of a free-to-play snowboarding title.

Titled Edge of the World, the PC and Mac game will feature online competitions, social networking access, and trans-media integration.

While a release date has yet to be announced, Funcom plans to use the game to promote Norway’s winter sports.

Sounds like some gnarly online jibbin’ to us.
