Square Enix has announced exclusive features for the PC version of Sleeping Dogs, set to launch next month for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. Sleeping Dogs is a gritty and visceral open world cop drama set in the vibrant city of Hong Kong. The PC version is set to ship with an array of advanced graphical features. Gamers with the hardware bandwidth are promised a host of graphical enhancements, hardware optimisations and support for the latest AMD and Nvidia features.
The high-resolution texture pack enhances the game, bringing finer 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 a better 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 optimisations 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 will be available from 17th August 2012 for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 video game and PC. Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details about Sleeping Dogs.
