Shenmue III Backer Trial Gameplay
As for what players could expect of the game, here are things that the game developer has shared:
The elements and features to be included have almost all been pinned down, and we are now working to finalize a delivery date with our partners. Once a date has been confirmed, another announcement will be made here in the updates.
The trial version will feature a stand-alone act with an objective that takes place in the first area of Shenmue III, Bailu Village. The game will be playable for an estimated 1 hours and will be replayable after the objective has been cleared. There are lots of activities to experience and we hope you go back for more until the trial expires.
* The trial version will also come with a PDF play guide.
* Saves will not transfer over to the final version.
Shenmue III is scheduled to hit the market on November 19, both for PC and PlayStation 4.
