All hail the glory of Shrek. Everybody’s favourite orge is in the spotlight again in what feels like a hark back to the 00s when the franchise was in its heyday.

It’s beautiful to see the love for Shrek is still strong after all this time. Undoubtedly, the fact that Shrek 5 is happening and releasing the same year as GTA VI has helped. As too will the news that Shrek 2 is turning 20, with the occasion celebrated by a short return to cinemas.

We could lose ourselves in the hype about the films alone. However, there’s video gaming Shrek updates to be had too – like learning that an open-world RPG dedicated to Shrek has been created in Unreal Engine 5.

This Shrek RPG looks simply amazing – we need a full game, stat!

As one happy fan said, “Shrek is love. Shrek is life. Amen.” We’ll add an extra amen to that.

Before you get overly excited at the prospect of returning to the swamp through the magic of video games, we’re sorry to have to point out a problem with that. This is but a concept of what a PC title could look like.

As upsetting as it is to learn this, seeing Shrek brought to life via the Unreal Engine brings us hope, perhaps misplaced, that one day a developer will realise that now is the time to make this game happen.

“But this is exactly what the players need!” declared an impressed gamer without a trace of sarcasm. “Thousands of hours of work by artists, programmers, a couple of million dollars for an AAA game about Shrek! Without serious lore for a couple of books, without new mechanics, without RTX and next-gen. Just one huge pile of memes ready to hit the jackpot.”

It sounds like a way to heal the world. Yet, we’re not ready for that. Lord knows we really need to be, but we can only experience Shrek like this through a concept trailer… at least for now.
