Sleeping Dogs Summary
In a cruel twist of fate, as soon as Smash + Grab went on sale for the weekend, the developer behind the multiplayer crime simulator reportedly closed its doors at the start of the week.
Triad Wars was a game that United Front Games intended originally to be a sequel to Sleeping Dogs. Then it was reborn as an online game in which you don't really interact with other players online. It didn't really accomplish any of the things it was meant to be, which may very well be why United Front announced today that they will be closing down services on the game.
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.
