Shenmue III’s First Season Pass Content is Racing DLC!

Posted January 15, 2020 by Richard Lee Breslin in DLC, Gaming News, PC, PS4, Season Pass

Deep Silver and Ys Net has revealed the first piece of DLC included in the Shenmue III season pass, and it seemingly involves sprint racing!  Yes I know, it’s not exactly the first piece of DLC that springs to mind when thinking of the Shenmue series, but it is what it is and who knows, it might be fun.

Battle Rally will not only have you sprinting as the main protagonist Ryo Hazuki, but also none-playable characters such as Wuying Ren, who we first met in Shenmue II and Ryo’s sparring partner from the third game, Wei Zhen.

Completing the races is said to earn you “awesome items”, presumably to be used in the main game and it might be safe to assume that the races will include the signature QTE’s.  Battle Rally is included in the Shenmue III reason pass at no extra cost or for £6.49 as an individual purchase and it will release on January 21st.
