What you need to know
- Shenmue III is now available on PC.
- You can currently get it through the Epic Games Store.
- It is set to come to Steam in 2020 after a 1-year exclusivity period with Epic.
I don't think anyone expected the day would actually come, but you can now get your hands on Shenmue III for PC and PlayStation 4. Those playing on PC will have to settle for the Epic Games Store, however, as it won't be coming to Steam for at least another year.
If you've never played a Shenmue game before, this one will include a "recap digest" movie so you don't feel lost or left out. Shenmue III is meant to be accessible to old and new players alike.
While Shenmue III is only available on PS4 and PC right now, there were leaks that suggest it may come to Xbox One in the future. As of right now, though, an Xbox release has not been confirmed.
The story goes on
Thanks to the generous backing of thousands, Shenmue III was funded through Kickstarter, bringing the much-anticipated sequel out of development hell. You can finally play it for yourself on PC, nearly two decades after its predecessor released.
