Looks like the second piece of Shenmue III DLC is releasing sooner than expected. According to Deep Silver and Ys Net, the new second DLC called ‘Story Quest Pack’, will be released on February 18, 2020. It will be priced at $5.99 or free for those who own the Shenmue III Complete DLC Edition.
This new DLC will include new story elements, as Ryo Hazuki, the protagonist of the series will “cross paths with a familiar face from the past, Zhang Shugin, as Ryo becomes embroiled in a new escapade where nothing is as it seems.”
However, not everyone will be able to jump right in with this new DLC. You’ll have to have reached the city of Niaowu, otherwise, the DLC will be inaccessible to you.
Shenmue 3 is available on the PlayStation 4 and PC (Epic Games Store).
