Square Enix has said Sleeping Dogs for Windows PCs is set to ship with a set of PC-specific features to bring Hong Kong island to life.
The high-resolution texture pack updates the game to a new level, bringing detail and crisp clear rendering to everything from city skyscrapers to crumbling ancient temples. Another layer of depth is added for gamers running at higher resolutions using increased small object detail to render smaller items of the world from a far greater distance. In-game shadows receive a significant upgrade with support for high-resolution shadow textures, high quality shadow filters and support for Screen Space Ambient Occlusion.
Sleeping Dogs features performance enhancements for both dual and quad core PC setups, enhanced performance for Nvidia SLI and AMD Crossfire, support for keyboard and mouse setup (including key mapping) and optimisations for both 3D and multi monitors on both AMD and Nvidia hardware.
Those who pre-order the game on Steam will get access to eight new items in the Team Fortress 2 Triad Pack. There's something for every class, with new weapons, new hats, swag and tattoos, and a King of the Hill map inspired by the streets of Hong Kong.
Developed by United Front Games in collaboration with Square Enix London Studios, Sleeping Dogs is set to launch August 14th for PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3.
