It was recently leaked on Amazon, but today Square Enix have officially confirmed Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition.

Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition will be released for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on October 10th.  It comes as a re-mastered update of the critically acclaimed Sleeping Dogs which released in 2012. The capabilities of today’s hardware have truly brought the vibrant Hong Kong experience to life. In addition, a total of 24 pieces of downloadable content have been integrated into the gaming experience including the story-extending episode Year of the Snake and the horror-themed add-on Nightmare In North Point. Dan Sochan, Senior Producer at United Front Games stated:

It was an exciting opportunity for the original development team to be able revisit a game we’re so passionate about, We’re giving old and new fans a lot reasons to pick up the game, as we’ve gone beyond just increasing resolution and running at 1080p. We listened to the fans: we tuned gameplay, we added to the ambience of Hong Kong, increased audio fidelity and pushed the visuals further than we could on the previous generation of consoles.

Jon Brooke, Vice President of Brand and European Marketing at Square Enix Europe added:

Sleeping Dogs was a huge success and bringing it to the new generation of consoles was an easy decision, Updated visuals and the inclusion of all the downloadable content really makes this the Definitive Edition of the game.
