Following an Amazon listing outing the game earlier this week, Square Enix has officially announced that it will be bringing a Definitive Edition of United Front Games’ Sleeping Dogs to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC this October.
Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition is a “re-mastered update” of the 2012 release, and contains 24 pieces of downloadable content, including the story-extending episode Year of the Snake and the horror-themed add-on Nightmare In North Point. The game will run at 1080p and features “tuned gameplay” as well as audio and visual upgrades.
“It was an exciting opportunity for the original development team to be able 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 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.”
“Sleeping Dogs was a huge success and bringing it to the new generation of consoles was an easy decision” added Jon Brooke, Vice President of Brand and European Marketing at Square Enix Europe. “Updated visuals and the inclusion of all the downloadable content really makes this the Definitive Edition of the game.”
Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition is set to launch October 10 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
