To the surprise of no one, a new game based on the upcoming Shrek movie has been announced to coincide with the movie: Shrek Ever After. Oh, and it’s coming from Activision. Again, no surprise. Here’s the skinny:
Based on the final chapter in the Shrek franchise from DreamWorks … Shrek [longs] for the days when he felt like a “real ogre.” Shrek is duped into signing a pact with the smooth-talking dealmaker, Rumpelstiltskin. Shrek suddenly finds himself in a twisted, alternate version of Far Far Away, where ogres are hunted, Rumpelstiltskin is king and Shrek and Fiona have never met. Now, it’s up to Shrek to undo all he’s done in the hopes of saving his friends, restoring his world and reclaiming his one True Love.
Gamers will adventure through a variety of locations from the Shrek universe, solve challenging puzzles and battle exciting new enemies as they morph between Shrek’s normal world and his alternate reality…and ultimately conquer that crafty Rumpelstiltskin. The game offers a fun-filled social and collaborative experience with its cooperative multiplayer mode for up to four players to work together through the single-player story.
Shrek Forever After will be available for the Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, DS and PC.
Sounds like it will be right at home with the kiddos.
