Big Sleeping Dogs DLC Plans

Square Enix London announces Sleeping Dogs will be released in North America tomorrow and the crime game will show up in Europe and other PAL territories on Friday. They also announce they will not let Sleeping Dogs lie, as they have plans for six months worth of DLC for the game:

Square Enix London Studios, a part of Square Enix Europe, today announced its highly anticipated undercover cop drama SLEEPING DOGS will be in stores from August 14th in North America and from August 17th in Europe and other PAL territories. An incredible open world experience, SLEEPING DOGS aims to keep players returning to Hong Kong with plans for an extensive six months of additional content.

“SLEEPING DOGS is a game we know fans will want to keep on playing, so over the next six months we’ll be creating a series of new content packs giving players everything they need to keep enjoying the game,” said Lee Singleton, General Manager, Square Enix London Studios. “We want to create something to suit everyone’s play style from cool cars and high-speed missions to outlandish outfits and game-extending mission packs. The game launch is just the beginning.”

There will be a range of new downloads available at launch to help players get ahead of the game, including the 80s-inspired Retro Triad Pack, a killer old school outfit with its own player buffs and funky kung-fu van. New content packs are planned from September, beginning with a high-speed Racing Pack and an explosive SWAT Pack - further announcements to follow soon.

The first SLEEPING DOGS packs will be available from launch on the Xbox LIVE® online entertainment network, PlayStation®Network and Steam.

I... didn't even know this was coming to PC.

Here in the states, it's a digital release only. Think there's also a boxed copy, if you're overseas...


exactly. most of the DLC sound cosmetic and don't add to the game at all so they're purely optional.

In SD, outfits are supposed to add stat boosts. But they're still in no way required.

It's not DLC when it's on the fucking disk.

The only decent thing Square has done recently is Deux Ex: Human Revolution. Following Capcom down the on-disk DLC path is suicide.

A long play through of the whole game - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kOyFjXTnx4k&feature=plcp

Looks good. Please reconnect your controller.

This sounds a lot like the Saints Row 3 DLC. In other words, a bunch of minor additions like new costumes, weapons, vehicles, etc. I don't really have a problem with that stuff since it is completely inconsequential. I like my games hard so it wouldn't make sense for me to buy any DLC that makes them easier.

Early reviews are in the 9/10 range. Very surprising I'd say

Nickel and dime us to death!

I got the game, I will just wait for a steam sale next year for DLC.

I'm not one to freak about DLC or even early DLC, as I understand how game development timelines work. That said I really can't believe companies still advertise this stuff before the game even launches. They must think it sways people to buy a game, knowing there is DLC coming, even though internet fan rage says the opposite.
