Sleeping Dogs is finally arriving on the PlayStation 4 today with the Definitive Edition. The next generation port of the 2012 sleeper hit also features all 24 previously released DLC for the game, including the horror themed “Nightmare in North Point”. There is also a new title in the form of Borderlands the Pre-sequel, which takes to the moon of the Borderlands world in order to stop a crazed maniac who has hijacked a giant super-laser.
The release of the PS4 version of Sleeping Dogs on the PS Store has been long awaited. Critics praised the original game for its refreshing setting, engaging gameplay, and excellent writing; although the fact that half the dialogue is in Cantonese goes quite far to endear it to local audiences. PlayStation is promising visual and audio improvements that take advantage of the addition processing power available to the PS4, which makes this worth a look.
Borderlands the Pre-sequel is the much awaited prequel to the sequel of The Borderlands. It features new characters to play, new weapon types, and a new setting that provides for more mobility due to the low gravity. PlayStation is providing an early bird bonus DLC of the “Shock Drop Slaughter Pit” for those who purchase the game between 15 and 28 October.
Also available for purchase now is the Borderlands the Pre-Sequel Season Pass, which provides access to the next four DLC for the game. There is no news on what this will be, but there was a hint that Borderlands 2 antagonist Handsome Jack will be come a playable character. All four DLC will supposedly be out by October 2015, barring any unforeseen delays.
Sleeping Dogs Definitive Edition is available on the PS4 for RM163 from the PS Store. Borderlands the Pre-Sequel is retailing for RM191 on the PS3, with no PS4 version announced. The Season Pass for Borderlands the Pre-Sequel is retailing for RM95.
