Sleeping Dogs Awakens This August

By Mark Delaney, 6 years ago
There's been quite a buzz surrounding since Square Enix saved it from cancellation, and we can now confirm that the game's "second half of 2012" release date has been specified for August 14th. No regional information was announced, but it's presumed this is the North American release date with other regions following later that week.

In addition to that news comes the inevitable pre-order bonuses. Though these are retailer specific, I'd be surprised if they weren't ultimately available to all via the marketplace.

Will you be picking up United Front's open world action/adventure, and if so, from which retailer?
