    Team up with a cast of crazy critters, unleashing your animal instincts in Open Season™: A riotous romp in the great outdoors, in which a rowdy brood of forest animals turn the tables on a group of unsuspecting hunters.

    When a domesticated grizzly named Boog gets lured into leaving the creature comforts of his home by a fast-talking mule deer named Elliott, he finds himself lost in the woods only three days before hunting season begins. Forced to rough it in the great outdoors, Boog goes native, rallying all the forest animals to take back their home and send the hunters packing.

    Take a walk on the wild side in this outrageous adventure based on the Open Season animated feature, opening in theaters September 29!

    • Play as Boog and Elliott: Relive the movie adventure and interact with all your favorite animal characters from the Open Season animated film.
    • Play with others: Challenge your friends or team up together in hilarious four-player mini-games!
    • Play dirty: Throw skunk bombs, hurl rabbits, use acorn-firing squirrels, and pull outrageous woodland pranks to scare the pants off the hunters. Roll in a giant snowball, ride the rapids on a floating outhouse, zip through tunnels in a crazy mine cart ride, and take on more madcap adventures as Boog discovers how to go from Mild to Wild!
