Shenmue III Steam Backer Replacement Options Detailed

Deep Silver and Ys Net have provided further details on the options available to Shenmue III’s Kickstarter backers who had requested Steam copies of the game following the recent announcement that the PC version will be a timed exclusive on the Epic Games Store. The options available to those backers are as follows:

  • PC physical: Disc (note — contains the Epic Games Store installer, not the game data) + Epic Games Store code
  • PC digital: Epic Games Store code
  • PS4 physical: Disc copy
  • PS4 digital: PlayStation Store code

Refund requests will also be honoured if none of the options are deemed acceptable.

Originally announced in the early 2000s, Shenmue III was re-announced in 2015 before undergoing a successful Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign. The game will be released for PC and PlayStation 4 on November 19, 2019. Limited Run Games announced during its E3 presentation that it will be distributing the game’s physical collector’s edition in North America.
