Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition confirmed!
A rumour here…a leaked store listing there…you've only heard about it being whispered about behind cupped hands…but enough of that. Today we are delighted to officially confirm that Sleeping Dogs is coming to the new generation of consoles. Enter: Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition!
Available on PS4, Xbox One and PC and released on October 10 (Europe) / October 14 (North America), the Definitive Edition will not only see Wei Shen free-running and man-handling his way through a living, breathing HD Hong Kong, but will also include 24 DLC packs! Amongst the other kick-ass DLCs, that also includes Year of the Snake, Nightmare in North Point and the awesomely explosive Wheels of Fury pack - Kapow!
The folks over at United Front Games have been busy tinkering away on this one after having already done a masterful job on the original game as well as having played a major role working on the Definitive Edition of Tomb Raider, alongside Crystal Dynamics...
So I can therefore happily say that the Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition is in as good hands as can be!
Thanks to the snazzy new tech the current generation delivers, UFG has been able to do more than just scale the resolution to 1080p and the upgraded ambience and visuals of Hong Kong provide quite the backdrop to your undercover operation.
Just in case you need a refresher on the story of Sleeping Dogs: Wei Shen, an undercover cop, is tasked with taking down one of the world's most fearsome criminal organisations from the inside... the Hong Kong Triads. As Wei's infiltration goes ever deeper, questions of loyalty and betrayal are raised and the line between being a cop and acting as a Triad becomes blurred.
