Sleeping Dogs to be awakened by Zombie DLC



Sleeping Dogs will receive the Nightmare in North Point pack later this month, introducing zombies to the game.

According to Polygon, the new Zombie DLC is due on October 30 and will bring to square's popular game. Apparently the campaign tells the story of a former Triad member who is killed and resurrected along with an undead army, whose eyes glow blue when they are killed.

To counter this new threat, Wei Shen gains a new lightning fists ability granted by a magical tea, then goes off to kill the undead, although he'll also have to kill off some Chinese vampires using his new peach wood sword.

Zombie eh? Gotta love em.

It does sound interesting, that's for sure. Zombies are terribly over used in games though, CoD, Saints Row, and now this. We need more pirates, or ninjas, or robots, or robot ninja pirates.

Zombies are becoming a sure sign of laziness in gaming. Give us something new

Not laziness so much as a lack of imagination, zombies are great though, and will pull people in, but I would prefer it if zombies were left to zombie games rather than being shoehorned in to other games left right and centre. I don't want to get bored of zombies.

No, I'm quite sure it's laziness. That and banking in on what's popular right now

If you want to call it laziness fine, but the whole games concept is quite lazy then, open world crime based games have been pretty well covered already.

When was the last open world crime game released? Something zombie related seems to come out every 48 hours

Now you're just exaggerating, both are well used game ideas.

Could be fun. Beginning to get tired of zombies but I think I can accept 2 more iterations (This and ZombiU)

Great news that they are adding new DLC, however zombies are becoming a bit old now. I understand that you can't have a werewolf infestation, but we need something new and exciting to stop the zombie genre from getting stale.

Considering the game I would have thought robot samurai would be more fitting than zombies, or maybe robot ninja?

Could always have a vampire infestation. That hasn't gone stale. Also you could always have a werewolf pack infiltrate the town. Who knows. But I agree zombies is getting very lazy and old now.

Neh, I've never watched it. If you do vampires well then it's really pretty awesome. I'm waiting for a good vampire rpg sort of game.

I think it's great that the developers have released some content to add to the Campaign mode. It's normally pointless weapons, skins & abilities etc.
