PC version of Sleeping Dogs has a few extra studs on its collar

According to that video, Sleeping Dogs is going to look awesome on PC. Not that it doesn’t look awesome on consoles. I guess you could say it’s going to look awesomer, if that’s a legitimate word. The PC version of the game will come with a high resolution texture pack, which is set to “amp up the world to new levels of realism, transforming Hong Kong into a completely immersive world,” according to Square Enix.

Absurdly rad graphics isn’t all you’re getting, though. Pre-ordering the game on Steam gets you eight new Sleeping Dogs items in the Team Fortress 2 Triad Pack. Heavies will have the ability to breathe fire, scouts will have a cleaver, spies will have more covert spy abilities, and the pyros will have a neon sign for head-conking. Add in tattoos, swag, new hats, and a King of the Hill map inspired by the very streets of Hong Kong, and you’ve got a weird marriage that I don’t understand at all.

Square Enix has also released the system requirements for Sleeping Dogs’ PC version, which can be found after the break. Sleeping Dogs will be out on August 14 for the PC, with PS3 and Xbox 360 versions also available.
