Square Enix has announced that more content for Sleeping Dogs is on the way. Not surprising given that Sleeping Dogs earned the title of ‘UK’s best-selling new IP of 2012.’
The publisher will be releasing five new downloadable content packs over the coming months, with the first pack, titled ‘The Monkey King Pack,’ already available on the Xbox 360 and PC in Europe and North America, with PlayStation 3 following in North America tomorrow but already out in Europe. It is priced at 160 Microsoft Points and $1.99/€1.49 on the PlayStation 3 and Steam.
The Monkey King Pack was voted for by the community and let’s players take on the form of the mythical Sun Wukong, the fabled Monkey King of Chinese lore. “Bestowed with the power of the immortals, Wei can wield a powerful two-handed staff against the demons of the Hong Kong underworld.” The pack includes a Monkey King themed outfit, as well as its own buff, a signature unbreakable magic staff weapon and the Cloud Motorcycle vehicle.
The Movie Masters Pack is available now for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC in Europe and North America. It’s also priced at 160 Microsoft Points and $1.99/€1.49 for the PS3 and Steam. This pack gives players three new combat-themed costumes for Wei Shen and empowers them to become their own Kung Fu hero. “Don the outfit of the lone Vigilante, become a heroic legend with the Unknown Warrior outfit or coat yourself in armour and take on all manner of attacks while wearing the Bronze Warrior outfit.”
The Law Enforcer Pack is up next, although the release date is still marked as ‘coming soon.’ According to the description, “No criminal in Hong Kong is safe from justice. The Law Enforcer Pack gives players their most comprehensive access yet to police department gear, including two cop outfits, a new weapon and five police vehicles.”
The Wheels of Fury Pack is also said to be ‘coming soon.’ This includes a “weapon-laden supercar, the prototype DZS-90 will give Wei Shen enough armour and firepower to take control of business.” It also features a “series of upgrades and add-ons available on completion of each mission, building into the ultimate supercar available both in missions and in the open world.”
Lastly the Year of the Snake Pack, which is also said to be ‘coming soon,’ features new missions and is said to continue the story of Wei Shen as he re-joins the Hong Kong Police Department, set after the main game. “A vicious end-of-the-world 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 path to their righteous salvation. With an arsenal of weapons, including teargas guns and electroshock pistols, new outfits and abilities, Wei must enter a race against the clock to bring the cultists to justice before Judgment Day.”
