Square Enix and United Front Games today confirm that Sleeping Dogs is due to launch on the 10th October 2014 in Europe for the PlayStation and the Xbox One and Windows PC.
Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition is a re-mastered update of the critically acclaimed game which released in 2012. In addition, a total of 24 pieces of downloadable content have been integrated into the gaming experience including the story-extending episode Year of the Snake and the horror-themed add-on Nightmare In North Point.
“It was an exciting opportunity for the original development team to be able revisit a game we’re so passionate about. We’re giving old and new fans a lot reasons to pick up the game, as we’ve gone beyond just increasing resolution and running at 1080p. We listened to the fans: we tuned gameplay, we added to the ambience of Hong Kong, increased audio fidelity and pushed the visuals further than we could on the previous generation of consoles.”
Dan Sochan, Senior Producer at United Front Games
“Sleeping Dogs was a huge success and bringing it to the new generation of consoles was an easy decision. Updated visuals and the inclusion of all the downloadable content really makes this the Definitive Edition of the game.”
