Sleeping Dogs Summary
Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition is on the way this month, and developer United Front Games has released a and several screenshots showing off the visual upgrades the Hong Kong crime thriller has received.
As well as those remastered graphics, buying the Definitive Edition will net you all 24 of the game's content packs and expansions.
The next-gen remastering of Sleeping Dogs is on the way but we hadn't really seen any of these lofty improvements. Now Square Enix has released a 101 trailer for the Definitive Edition out this October.
Among the improvements are native 1080p, high resolution textures, increased density for traffic and pedestrians, new lighting, ambient fog and tweaked gameplay - and all 24 DLCs.
Set in Hong Kong and the Sleeping Dogs universe, Triad Wars is an open-world sandbox that's online. Naturally this isn't a sequel to United Front Games great undercover cop tale in China.
No, this is an MMO spin-off where we attempt to rise through the ranks of the Triad factions. Closed beta registrations have begun and a trailer has been launched.
United Front Games' Sleeping Dogs is getting the Definitive Edition treatment for PC, Xbox One and PS4 - and it's due out in early October. Some more little details have been released.
It is now "natively running in 1080p," with textures and draw distances improved for sharper visuals, and there's volumetric fog too. Sadly, mod support isn't so definitive.
Sleeping Dogs was a bit of a sleeper hit back in 2012, an open-world crime game that took the basic GTA formula and added a satisfying dollop of John Woo-style Hong Kong action.
Now it's coming back to PC in a so-called Definitive Edition that bundles up all 24 of the game's DLC packs and gives the graphics a little extra polish.
