Sleeping Dogs Release Date Confirmed

Square Enix has confirmed a release date for their True Crime: Hong Kong rescue job.

Sleeping Dogs, which looks tremendously exciting, will be released on the 17th August in the UK and the 14th of August in the US, smack bang in the middle of the traditional summer blockbuster drought.


They’ve also given word of the limited edition pre-order bonuses, available at all UK retailers, and provided some new screens, all of which is below.

Limited Edition packs include:

‘George St. Pierre (GSP)’ content:

  • GSP’s signature “flying punch”
  • Exclusive GSP outfit including T-shirts, headband and shorts
  • The GSP outfit unlocks the “flying punch” and increases grappling and throwing damage

‘Police Protection’ content:

  • Exclusive “High Speed” Mission
  • Exclusive HK Police SWAT Outfit
  • Exclusive assault rifle
  • Exclusive SWAT Police Vehicle

  1. Really looking forward to this game, but am getting a little put off by all this pre-order crap (not for this game alone, just generally).

    I’ll be glad when they say “you can pre-order today… For absolutely no benefit”

    • moaning forrest lol me too looks good mate

  2. The date is so evil that it makes this likely to get my attention… as there’s nothing, yeah. True Crime: LA was cool but a bit shit New York was fun so I hope its like that with all the power to learn to new fighting moves, haircuts and stuff. Heh

  3. As long as I don’t get locked out of proper content I’m happy to preorder otherwise I just boycott it. Will pick this up based on my many travels to Hong Kong :)

  4. I’m looking forward to this.

  5. Those pictures look great, going to keep an eye on this one.
