A year to the day after Shenmue III was released on PC as an Epic Game Store exclusive, it’s now available to purchase on Steam.
Shenmue III – a game we called hilarious – is now available to purchase on Steam following 365 days of Epic Games Store exclusivity. The decision to tie the game to Epic’s platform caused a bit of a hubbub when it was announced in June last year, but the outcry swiftly subsided when it was released to lukewarm reviews.
Nonetheless, if you’ve waited to play Yu Suzuki’s sequel on Steam, your patience has been rewarded. Its launch is accompanied by some massive discounts for the base game, its season pass, and its separate DLC packs. The offers are available from today until November 23, 2020.
Shenmue III follows the continuing story of Japanese martial artist Ryo Hazuki, who is out to avenge his father’s death on a journey through the (semi) open-world region of Guilin. In addition to all the avenging, players can also enjoy gambling, forklift driving, woodchopping, and turtle racing. At 66% off, it sounds rather tempting.

- Shenmue III – 66% off
- Shenmue III Deluxe Edition – 66% off
- DLC 1 Big Merry Cruise – 60% off
- DLC 2 Battle rally – 60% off
