Shenmue 3 is launching as an Epic Games store exclusive

Shenmue 3

Shenmue 3

That means you can grab a free game every week until the end of the year. Though the Shenmue 3 Kickstarter campaign never promised which marketplace its PC version would be available on (it's always said that backers can choose a "Windows PC" version of the game), its system requirements have frequently mentioned requiring Steam. In other words, this could be another "Metro Exodus" situation. Of course, the community reaction to Epic Games snatching up so many titles hasn't been wholly positive, so this news will dishearten many who were hoping to pick it up somewhere like Steam.

Shenmue 3 sees the eagerly anticipated continuation of the epic story-driven saga in which players take control of Ryo Hazuki, a teenage martial artist, determined to unravel the mystery behind his father's murder and to exact revenge on the killer. You will use these skills to both deal with enemies and save innocents in cinematic moments.

Update: In a Kickstarter post, Ys Net has confirmed that Shenmue 3 will be exclusive to the Epic Games Store on PC: "Shenmue III for PC will be will be an Epic Games Store exclusive". This exclusivity was apparently chosen as Epic have been an important partner in the development of Shenmue III in helping with supporting development via the Unreal Engine.
