Pirate Queen’s Quest Code Status

47 likes

Hi Backers! We’re back after a busy week of Backer Code distribution for Shantae: Pirate Queen’s Quest. If you’ve received your code, we hope you’re having a great time playing the game! If you have NOT received a code yet, please read this – answers are below!

Shantae: Pirate Queen’s Quest DLC code status:

  • Steam (global): Delivered 
  • Wii U (North America): Delivered
  • Wii U (Europe): Delivered
  • Wii U (Australia): Delivered
  • PS4 (Europe): Delivered
  • PSVita (Europe): Delivered
  • PS4 (North America): Pending
  • PSVita (North America): Pending 
  • Xbox One (global): Pending

 

What does PENDING mean?! HELP ME!

If you’re one of the platforms and/or territories listed above as “Pending”, that means the codes are still on the way. They might still arrive before the DLC is made available to the general public (possibly even as we write this), but we don’t want to take any chances.

For this reason, we’ll be sending each of the Backers whose codes are listed as “Pending” a free copy of the base game for Steam, along with a code for Pirate Queen’s Quest. That way you won’t be left out while you wait. We’re very sorry for the delay, so the extra game code, and extra DLC code are on the house. Feel free to use those codes or give them to a friend. We’ll notify you the moment your actual codes arrive!

As always, get rewards by logging into Backer Kit (https://www.backerkit.com/master_backer_accounts/sign_up). If you are having any further issues, please review Update #94!

 

What if it says DELIVERED, but I don’t have it?

First, be sure to check your spam filter. We have confirmed via Backer Kit that they have all been sent.

If you had difficulty logging into WayForward’s website earlier this week, this has been fixed, so please try again. Huge thanks to the Backers that discovered and reported the error.

Thanks, everyone, for your patience while we distribute codes!

      Ya i got steam codes as well. Gave me 15 digit codes instead of the 12 digit ps codes.

    2. Michael Link on

      I received Steam codes instead of PS4 codes, too!

    3. Tim Reilly on

      I also seem to have received Steam codes instead of PS4 codes for my most recent DLC.

      Echoing these other posts, it looks like I was given steam codes. Hopefully just a hiccup?

    5. Ryan Palacios on

      You gave me 2 useless codes with only 15 characters the xbox one has 25 characters what is this and when am I going to get my physical rewards.

    6. Drifty Boots on

      Hey, uh, WayForward? You guys sent me the same set of steam codes a second time. I got a whole new notification email and everything. Care to elaborate?

      I am kind of confused. I got my PS4 code, but all it does is say the based HGH game is unlocked, but I still can't play Risky mode.

      Thanks I received the steam keys, I really apreciate this gift, and I'll wait for the PS4 code. I want to ask if there's any news about digital art book, I really want to see it will be amazing.

    9. David Asselin on

      I just received PS4 codes.. But the format doesn't work.. What the hell?

    10. Drifty Boots on

      Well. The dlc is supposed to be officially released tomorrow, and sadly the ps4 backer codes are still pending. Any additional news on this, WayForward? I have my steam codes to a friend because I don't have the ability to play it well on my laptop. I'm not asking for a handout, or anything, just something to go on for when I can see my content

    11. Santos on

      WayForward has got to be one of the best companies out there. They go above and beyond to make things right for us when they are under no obligation to. I really love you guys.

    12. Marusame on

      Its for steam, the ps4 na is just I guess for them to know why the code was sent out, it was sent out because of the pending thing. But ironically my on pc is still pending while I wait for my pending xbox one code [Comp PQQ Steam Code (Xbox One)pending]

    13. Andrew Link on

      I don't get this. It says Comp PQQ Steam Code (PS4 NA). Is it for steam or PS4?

    14. Marusame on

      Doesnt work, tried it, Far as ive figured out you NEED two codes, seems like I read that just the main steam version was supposed to be a sort of beta release to include the dlc but ive restarted it a dozen times, verified the files, started a game everything... do you need to have a save game or something to start playing the DLC? do you need to finish the game or something or will the dlc let you play no matter what cause it tells me to go to the store to buy it still.

      STEAM USERS - Restart Steam. The DLC will install and will be playable.

      At this point I assume that getting the xbox one version was somehow cursed. Im super glad I have the base game of shantae on pc now, im totally going to beat it again. Push comes to shove they get a positive review score from me so that may raise its rating further.

      But PQQ dlc for the now PC version I own is also pending. So now i technically have two sets of pending Pirate Queens Quest codes.

      Glad this went well. Better than the main game by far.

    19. Eijhu on

      I know it's presumptuous to ask for a favor on top of a freebie, but here goes: Could I perhaps have a Switch code instead of that additional Steam one? (I'm PSVita-NA and pending, which really is NOT as big a deal as you make it. ^_-)
      Half-Genie Hero is perfectly suited for playing on the go. And I'd REALLY like to see this game in action on Nintendo's little marvel...

      Regardless of whether I can or cannot get a Switch code, I just wanted to thank you VERY much for everything: The game is amazing, hardcore mode deserves its name, and your handling of little snafus as this is exemplary.
      Please be very sure to let me / us know if you ever kickstart anything again. Chances are you would see quite of lot of very satisfied backers returning.

      Is it possible to exchange my received WiiU code for a steam one?

      Back when the game released I was among those who got a complementary steam code (WiiU EU backer) - and as I prefer playing on PC over WiiU I gave the WiiU code away to a friend.

      So now the WiiU code is basically useless to me and a steam one would really be appreciated.

      Ugh! You guys are the best. It's like you see a problem and something that might make backers upset and talk with each other about how to turn the negative situation into a positive one. Just the greatest!

      cool, thanks!

      I assume i need this code as well for this to work? Comp PQQ Steam Code (Xbox One)pending

      What a stand-up company; they in no way had to do this but wanted their backers to have a little perk of exclusive access to the Piratr Queen's Quest content before the rest of the world, which is awesome. Thank you Wayforward, you guys rock!

      @Gerrit - I assume you've figured it out by now, but just in case you haven't, and for anyone else with the same question, the DLC installs automatically when you enter the code into Steam. Go to your Library and find Shantae: Half-Genie Hero and select it. To the right you should see information about the game, including a DLC section. In there it should show Shantae: Pirate Queen's Quest; if you entered the code correctly and redeemed the DLC, it should show that it has been installed. ^_^

      I definately got the steam code for the base game but the dlc code is pending now. Guess this will take a couple hours or something?

    27. Josh Rushing on

      Eh, stuff happens. No way I can run it on Steam with my PC, so i'll just gift it off I suppose. I can keep myself content even if the DLC comes out officially before the codes drop.

    28. Chris Denney on

      Thank you for the complimentary Steam codes, but I already have the game on Steam. There's someone else out there who deserves a copy of the game. If possible, remove them and put them back into your pool of codes so someone else can play this fantastic game.

    29. Marusame on

      hmm it appears my PQQ steam code (xbox one?) is pending. So i guess this free copy of pc version is still missing the dlc. The way it was worded though this beta release had it built in. Guess ill wait a few hours to see if it drops. Thought it was the xbox one dlc but guess the pending one is the steam version courtesy of xbox one so they know what it was for.

    30. Marusame on

      @Gerrit How did it install? do you just gotta wait on an update? I installed the steam key given but it says i have to purchase risky boots. I verified the game a few times and started it up a bunch. Guess ill just wait and see if it just magically gets dlc'd

    31. Gerrit on

      @Joao, yes it did install after a while. I can play it now!

    32. João Santos on

      @Gerrit should happen automatically, and appear under the achievements list on your library

      @Marusame If it's the steam keys, nah. They're just specially marked keys so you can play the DLC before release.

      I actually don't have much to say here. Thanks for releasing early for backers again. Pretty satisfied with my pledge.

    33. Peck Boozer on

      I just wish the DLC was cross-buy. I backed on PS4, but I'd love to have this stuff on for my Vita as well as I don't have access to my PS4 as much as I did when I backed.

      Thanks for everything, this game is awesome, I'm very glad and proud to have contributed a bit. :)

    35. Marusame on

      apparently this is a beta release? So i guess we are getting like a temp copy or something idk its confusing ill take what i get heh, seems to be a version of the game on steam. Helps me out, as my elgato can only capture in 60fps at 720p i have a much better time capturing 1080p60 and 720p 60fps streaming straight off the desktop.

    36. Adam Mahlum on

      Any chance I could get a code for a Switch copy. I don't have steam. Or friends ;)

    37. Gerrit on

      I have "claimed" Pirate Queen's Quest on Steam, but I can't get it to install. Does it happen automatically at some point or is there a trick to do it manually?

    38. Marusame on

      Well thats super nice of them, they honestly didnt have to for a couple days exclusivity but i guess it pays to be a backer sometimes. Im looking at you, ps3 copy of mighty no. 9 that i paid 60$ for.
