Shenmue III is free on Epic Game Store for one day

Shenmue III

‘Tis the season for holly cheer and gaming store sales! Everyone in the gaming community knows we are in prime season for winter gaming sales. Every digital storefront is offering deals and values on games left and right. Some even offer games for free for just one day! And the Epic Game Store is doing just that.

On December 16th, you can grab Shenmue III for free on the Epic Games Store! That’s right! Free! All you need is an Epic account and access to the storefront, and the game is yours! 

I should mention one tiny hiccup. As of the writing of this article, the Epic Game Store is dealing with heavy traffic. Because of this, purchases on games will not go through. Epic has said they are looking into the issue. You can see the tweet below. 

Pretty fantastic of Epic to offer a game like Shenmue III for free around this time of year! Whatever your feelings are on the game itself, it’s great to see that more people might give it a chance now that they don’t have to pay for it. 

Shenmue III is still available on other systems as well. You can currently buy it on Steam, PS4/5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series S/X. Are you going to grab Shenmue before it’s gone?
