About Game Codes & Backer Codes
To activate Shenmue III in-game rewards, there are two main actions you will need to take:
1. Redeem the Steam DLC code.
2. Enter your Backer Code in the game itself.
PC version backers who selected the Steam opt-in will need to go to Steam Client to redeem the game code. Backers with in-game rewards will then need to enter their Steam DLC code through the Steam client followed by entering the in-game Backer Code after starting up Shenmue III.
