Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition confirmed for October 10

Coming to PC, PS4, and Xbox One from United Front Games

Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition is real and it's coming to PC, PS4 and Xbox One, Square Enix has revealed.

The game will run at 1080p resolution and show off "upgraded ambience and visuals of Hong Kong". It will also include 24 DLC packs, from item collections to campaign expansions like Nightmare in North Point and Year of the Snake.

It's planned for release on October 10 in Europe and October 14 in North America.

Square Enix released three new screenshots along with the announcement. The PC version of the original game released with a well-received HD textures pack, so the degree of improvements PC players can expect is less clear.

Developer United Front Games, which created the original game, was also in charge of Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition. The studio assisted Crystal Dynamics in bringing Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition to PS4 and Xbox One in January.

Retailer leaks from ShopTo and then Amazon had all but confirmed the game prior to its official announcement.

The Amazon listing indicated that pre-order copies of the game would include a 28-page artbook.

Sleeping Dogs originally released on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC in August 2012. CVG's Sleeping Dogs review called it "one of the best open world games of recent years", adding: "It lacks that pristine GTA polish, sure, but it makes up for it with its sense of humour, compelling story and fun mission design."
