Ubisoft Bringing Open Season to Consoles
“We have been working hand-in-hand with Ubisoft’s team to create a game that captures all the fun of Open Season,” said Mark Caplan, executive director, interactive at Sony Pictures Consumer Products. “Sony Pictures’ leadership in digital entertainment coupled with Ubisoft's award-winning development team is a great partnership that brings innovation to both the film and video game businesses.”
Open Season is a CG movie that tells the tale of forest animals that turn the tables on a bunch of unsuspecting hunters. When a domesticated grizzly named Boog gets lured into leaving the creature comforts of home by a talking mule deer named Elliot, he finds himself lost in the woods just three days before hunting season. 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.
The Open Season video game will allow player to relive the movie experience by playing as Boog and Elliot and throwing skunk bombs, hurling rabbits, using acorn-firing squirrels and pulling outrageous woodland pranks to scare the pants off the hunters. A multi-player mode that allows you to play against friends or team up in four-player mini-games will also be included.
