Sleeping Dogs Reveals the Year of the Snake DLC

By Ashley Woodcock, 5 years ago
Square Enix's highly successful sandbox title, Sleeping Dogs, has seen plenty of DLC released already. The most recent DLC packs released for Sleeping Dogs came out earlier this week, as the "Movie Masters Pack" and the "Monkey King Pack" aimed to extend the gaming time for fans of the title.

The DLC will keep rolling in strong this year, and Lee Singleton, General Manager of Square Enix London Studios, will be making sure of it:

We felt we had a hit on our hands in SLEEPING DOGS and to be the UK's best-selling new IP of 2012 is a fantastic achievement. Our goal was to set new benchmarks in the open world genre with best-in-class combat, driving and story-telling, and hopefully gamers feel that we've done that with SLEEPING DOGS. We will continue to do that in 2013 with the downloadable content still planned for release.
Here's the juicy details on the three DLC packs to come:

"Year of the Snake"
Wei Shen's story continues in Year of the Snake as he rejoins the ranks of the Hong Kong Police Department in a series of new missions set immediately 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.

"Wheels of Fury Pack"
Drug smuggling is big business for Hong Kong's triad gangs and Wei Shen's longtime friend Dr Tang has created the wheels to give the Sun On Yee the edge over their rivals. A weaponised supercar, the prototype DZS-90 will give Wei Shen enough armour and firepower to take control of business. Seize the streets back from the 18K with 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.
