United Front Games is proud to invite PC gamers to experience the team-based melee action of Smash+Grab this weekend. The Free Beta Weekend commences Friday, Sept. 9 at 9 a.m. PDT and continues till Sunday, Sept. 11 at 10 p.m. PDT.
Square Enix and United Front Games today confirms that SLEEPING DOGS: DEFINITIVE EDITION is due to launch on October 14, 2014 in North America for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
Available for download today, the Year of The Snake add-on pack extends the story of Sleeping Dogs, with a series of all-new, action-packed police missions set immediately after the main game. The Year of the Snake features four new Achievements/Trophies and will be available for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and Windows PC, priced at 560 MSP / $6.99.
The Year of the Snake sees Wei Shen’s story continue as he rejoins the ranks of the Hong Kong Police Department, only to be caught in chaos. A vicious doomsday cult is taking root in the back streets of Hong Kong… the Cult of the Snake. Hell-bent on cleansing the city of its evils, they cannot be negotiated with as they pursue a murderous path to their righteous salvation.
Wei must enter a race against the clock in an explosive countdown to midnight and bring the cultists to justice before the arrival of Judgement Day. With an arsenal of weapons – including a tear gas launcher and an electroshock pistol – new outfits and abilities, Wei aims to earn back his honor with the HKPD by sabotaging the cultists’ plot to bomb, terrorize and subdue the citizens of Hong Kong.
Through several missions and optional activities, Wei will track down the Cult of the Snake’s leader and personally show him that the world is not about to end for anyone but him and his followers.
This holiday season Sleeping Dogs offers a collection of gameplay add-ons, custom character packs and martial arts missions as six months of additional content continues.
Starting November 14th, Sleeping Dogs players will be able to download the Dragon Master Pack, a collection of weapons, character upgrades, martial arts moves and missions only previously available individually at pre-order.
Packs will be available to download throughout the Holiday Season from Xbox LIVE, PlayStation Network and Steam. More information including on-sale dates and pricing will be made available at www.sleepingdogs.net.
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:
After moving publishers and changing names, True Crime: Hong Kong is now Sleeping Dogs but the game remains the same. You are Wei Shen of San Francisco Police Department who has come back to Hong Kong after a long absence to infiltrate the Triad, known as the Sun On Yee in an Undercover mission. Can Wei separate himself from the case without getting too involved?
With United Front Games’ Sleeping Dogs three weeks from release, Square Enix London Studios today revealed Just Cause 2 players will find an exciting piece of free content available in the hotly anticipated open world cop drama.
Available in-game from launch, players browsing protagonist Wei Shen’s safehouse wardrobe will gain access to a unique new player outfit… a Just Cause 2 clothes set. Featuring Rico Rodriguez’ trademark look, players stepping out onto the streets of Hong Kong dressed as the King of Chaos will gain a distinct boost to their action hijack ability, allowing them to perform stunt-style takeovers of enemy vehicles from an even greater distance.
This exclusive Just Cause 2 clothes set will be available in-game from launch across all formats upon detection of a Just Cause 2 game save on the machine’s hard drive.
Producer Dan Sochan narrates a complete mission in the game, explaining down the systems in Sleeping Dogs and showcasing the game’s best-in-class combat.
After buying True Crime: Hong Kong from Activision and changing the name, the game is almost finished for release. The demo is in full from a recent trailer and features on foot combat and chasing trough crowds and facing multiple enemies and using the environment around you to aid in defeating enemies. Once you beat the boss, the demo ends. Really short. I think being able to be a really free form melee fighter in a third person game brings something fresh to not just be a typical action game or brawler. There was no driving seen in the trailers for this demo, sadly.
There’s a lot of blood, gore, and violence here that would make Grand Theft Auto blush.
