Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition coming October 10

Square Enix has confirmed Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition will arrive on October 10 for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.

Previously leaked by a prematurely published Amazon listing, Square Enix has officially announced the remastered version will arrive in October.

Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition will be launched for Xbox One, PS4 and PC with the game graphically enhanced to full 1080p HD.

You’ll get the main Sleeping Dogs game with all previously released DLC, including the additional Year of the Snake story episode and horror-themed Nightmare in North Point EP.

“It was an exciting opportunity for the original development team to be able to revisit a game we’re so passionate about,” said Dan Sochan. Senior Producer at United Front Games. “We’re giving old and new fans a lot of 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.”

If you haven’t played Sleeping Dogs, the game saw you play as Wei Shen, an undercover cop tasked with taking on the Triads gangs and his own personal problems.

You’ll have to play both sides of the law with both Cop and Triads, with the latter seeing you rise up the ranks of the organised crime gangs.

The game features shootouts, racing, martial art style combat and more, all set within an open world Hong Kong playground.
