Sleeping Dogs PC To Include A Host Of Added Extras

United Front GamesLaunching day and date with the Xbox 360 and PS3 releases next week, Sleeping Dogs for Windows PCs is set to ship with a stunning set of PC-specific features to bring Hong Kong island to life. With an array of advanced graphical features on-board, the Windows PC release gives gamers with the hardware bandwidth a host of graphical enhancements, hardware optimizations and support for the latest AMD and Nvidia features.

The high-resolution texture pack updates the game to a new level, bringing eye-watering detail and crisp clear rendering to everything from city skyscrapers to crumbling ancient temples. Another layer of depth is added for gamers running at higher resolutions using increased small object detail to render smaller items of the world from a far greater distance to give an incredible sense of scale and detail. In-game shadows receive a significant upgrade with support for high-resolution shadow textures, high quality shadow filters and support for Screen Space Ambient Occlusion. Sleeping Dogs features performance enhancements for both dual and quad core PC setups, enhanced performance for Nvidia SLI and AMD Crossfire, support for keyboard and mouse setup (including key mapping) and optimizations for both 3D and multi monitors on both AMD and Nvidia hardware.

For Team Fortress 2 players a special bonus awaits. Pre-order the game on Steam and players will get access to eight new items in the Team Fortress 2 Triad Pack. There’s something for every class: pyros will conk enemies over the head with a neon sign, heavies will breathe fire, scouts will get chopping with a comically oversized cleaver and spies will do what they do best, but even more covertly. And with all the new hats, swag and tattoos, you’ll fit right in on the new battlefield: a King of the Hill map inspired by the streets of Hong Kong!

Developed by United Front Games in collaboration with Square Enix London Studios, Sleeping Dogs is a gritty and visceral open world cop drama set in the vibrant city of Hong Kong. Taking the role of undercover cop Wei Shen, players are tasked with taking down one of the world’s most fearsome criminal organisations from the inside. Offering players an island packed with action, every street corner, market stall, harbour dock or city skyscraper can become an opportunity for intense shoot-outs, adrenaline-fuelled street races and intense, brutal martial arts combat.

Featuring one of the most intuitive and imaginative combat systems, Sleeping Dogs empowers players to perform an extensive set of martial arts moves, single-handedly taking on numerous opponents. Players perform bone-crunching kicks and combos, vicious counters and a cinematic set of environmental take-downs making use of countless real-world items from circular saws to phone booths, incinerators to refrigerator doors.

Sleeping Dogs will be available from 17th August 2012 for the PlayStation®3, Xbox 360® and Windows PCs. The game is rated M for Mature by the ESRB.
