The PC version of Sleeping Dogs for Windows PCs will release alongside the console date, and is set to ship with PC-specific features to which Square Enix say will “bring Hong Kong island to life.”
The PC version features a host of graphical enhancements, will optimize the hardware and will support the latest AMD and Nvidia features. The high-resolution texture pack will deliver improved detail and rendering, and running higher resolutions will result in a greater sense of scale and detail.
In-game shadows will receive a significant upgrade in textures and and support for Screen Space Ambient Occlusion was also included.
It’s not all visual enhancements as the game will feature performance enhancements too 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.
Lastly, Team Fortress 2 players will receive a special bonus – pre-order the game on Steam and you will get access to eight new items in the Team Fortress 2 ’Triad Pack.’
“There’s something for every class: pyros will conk enemies over the head with a neon sign, heavies will breathe fire, scouts will get chopping with a comically oversized cleaver and spies will do what they do best, but even more covertly.
“And with all the new hats, swag and tattoos, you’ll fit right in on the new battlefield: a King of the Hill map inspired by the streets of Hong Kong,” explains the press release.
