Sleeping Dogs is a great open-world cop-drama/action game that takes place in the streets of Hong Kong. If you slept (haha, get it?) on the game a few months ago, the most recent announcement of DLC might be enough to get you interested…there is enough here to satisfy anyone.
Dragon Master Pack
Featuring five pre-order packs in one, the huge Dragon Master Pack is the ultimate collection of killer content for Sleeping Dogs. Each of the below packs are included, also available to purchase separately:
- Triad Enforcer Pack
It’s a high-speed shoot-out in Triad Highway; armed with a high-capacity machine gun, fight a tide of Triads… after your head. Death by 1,000 Cuts puts you in a brutal fight club taking on the Triads with a razor-sharp golden cleaver. Wear the Triad Enforcer outfit for added Face and more punishing damage.
- Police Protection Pack
Unlock the exclusive High Speed police mission featuring the SWAT outfit, SWAT Police Cruiser car and SWAT Assault Rifle.
- Martial Arts Pack
Unlock the Shaolin Warrior outfit (with increased melee damage), the Shaolin Showdown mission and Wing Chun dummy decoration for your safe house.
- GSP Pack
Dress like Mixed Martial Arts champion Georges “Rush” St-Pierre with this collection of shorts, t-shirts and bandana, and devastate your enemies with GSP’s signature flying punch. Also adds increased grappling and throwing damage.
- Deep Undercover Pack
Unlock the Plain Clothes Detective outfit (with a reduced heat penalty), the Undercover Police Ghost Car and a CB Radio for your safe house.
Drunken Fist Pack
With the Drunken Fist pack, Wei unleashes this exclusive fighting style. While in combat, filling the face meter will enable Wei to drink from a flask of potent alcohol and perform unique special moves and powerful counters.
Square Enix Character Pack
Become a silent assassin, augmented warrior or king of chaos! Wei Shen dons new disguises in this pack, with three new outfits and three new weapons from Square Enix’s Hitman, Just Cause and Deus Ex games. Each outfit includes its own buff and signature weapon.
- Hitman outfit:
Agent 47’s suit grants reduced attention from the police and comes with a silenced Silverballer. Assassinate your enemies with stealth, Hitman style.
- Deus Ex outfit:
The Sarif Industries armor reduces gunfire damage by 33% and comes with a futuristic, fully automatic combat rifle. This technology really is decades ahead of its time.
- Just Cause outfit:
The Rico Rodriguez custom outfit allows you to hijack vehicles from a greater distance and comes with Rico’s signature pistol, which can fire explosive shells. Liberate those drivers at high speed!
Gangland Style Pack
Topple the Triads in street style with a Japanese Yakuza, Russian Mafia, or Maori Mongrel Mob tattoo, each with their own buff.
Zodiac Tournament Pack
Join Wei Shen for the fight of his life in the second gameplay-extending add-on pack. Invited to an exclusive tournament on a hidden island off the coast of Hong Kong, Wei must overcome the best-of-the-best as he takes on fighters from across Asia in a fight to the death.
- A new island off the coast of Hong Kong, featuring multiple themed fight arenas, new enemies, bosses and story-extending cutscenes.
- Two new unlockable outfits featuring new looks and powerful new fighting moves.
There is plenty of content to look forward to for Sleeping Dogs fans and it might even be enough to tide people over until GTA launches next year…but probably not. Hopefully they come in at relatively cheap price points, because that is a lot of stuff to check out. I wish more publishers and developers would release lots of content like this, but I’d like it better if it were free (especially when it’s stuff like weapon and costume packs.)
