Sleeping Dogs release date is August

Go crazy in Hong Kong this summer

Square Enix has slapped an August 14 US release date on open world action game Sleeping Dogs, with a European launch to follow three days later.


Set for release on 360, PS3 and PC, the game formerly known as Activision's True Crime: Hong Kong is being developed by ModNation Racers maker United Front Games in conjunction with Square Enix's London studio, which also worked on the likes of Batman: Arkham Asylum and Just Cause 2.

A limited edition of the game will be available at all UK games retailers for consumers who pre-order. The console versions will contain:

George St. Pierre (GSP) content:

  • GSP's signature "flying punch"
  • Exclusive GSP outfit including T-shirts, headband and shorts
  • The GSP outfit unlocks the "flying punch" and increases grappling and throwing damage

Police Protection content:

  • Exclusive "High Speed" Mission
  • Exclusive HK Police SWAT Outfit
  • Exclusive assault rifle
  • Exclusive SWAT Police Vehicle

Exclusive content for the digital PC version of Sleeping Dogs will be announced at a later date.
