Sleeping Dogs is an upcoming open world third-person action adventure game with role-playing elements where you take the role of an undercover police agent trying to infiltrate a Triad organization in Hong Kong. The game should be available for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, though only the PC version will have stereoscopic 3D support for 3D Vision users along with some other extras that PC gamers with more powerful rigs will be able to take advantage from according to the game’s developers. Among these are a high-resolution texture pack, better shadows, DirectX 11 features, multi-core CPU and GPU optimizations and support for multi-monitor setups for both AMD and Nvidia-based graphics cards. It is interesting to note that there is a mention of “Nvidia 3D Support” and not information that the game will be 3D Vision-ready, I just hope that we are not in for another Alan Wake and 3D support situation as Sleeping Dogs looks like it can be great in stereoscopic 3D mode.
Sleeping Dogs will be released on August 14th in North America and apparently it will be available only in a downloadable version, August 16th in Australia, August 17th in Europe in both Retail and Downloadable version and on September 27th in Japan where it will be released under the name Sleeping Dogs: Hong Kong Secret Police. The Japanese version will apparently have some censoring as well as the German version that will be delayed for some time after the official European release.
