A game like Sleeping Dogs was something unexpected from a publisher like Square Enix: the publisher wanted to make a bigger breakthrough in the western market through acquiring Eidos and its efforts have brought us some quality games last year. Sleeping Dogs is an excellent open world game starring Wei Shen, a chinese american trying to infiltrate the Sun On Yee Triad. The combat system is incredibly engaging, featuring a different take of the hand to hand combat seen in the latest Batman games. Players will also be able to use handguns and other firearms using the cover system to cover freely and aim as quickly as possible. As usual for open world games, there’s a lot of optional content together with the main story missions.
Despite its qualities, the game didn’t meet the publisher’s real expectations: however this was no reason to neglect the game some good DLC and we will finally be getting the first DLC pack just in time for the Chinese New Year. Called The Year Of The Snake, the DLC pack will feature more story contents as well as some new trophies and achievements: to be precise four new Trophies have been spotted after the recent title update. You can take a look at the latest trailer for the DLC here.
Sleeping Dogs is now available on Pc, Xbox 360 and Ps3.
