Hong Kong crime drama game, Sleeping Dogs, is getting its own zombie-style DLC later this month. Titled “Nightmare in Northpoint,” the DLC sees Wei Shen defending Hong Kong against the undead with the help of powerful Chinese magic. How exactly does this all come about? Here’s Square Enix’s summary:
Big Scar Wu was once one of Hong Kong’s most notorious and ruthless Triad gangsters. While he instilled fear amongst his enemies he equally unnerved his fellow brothers in the Sun On Yee. Growing futher our of control the Grand Dragon set out to make an example of him and had him stabbed 42 times before feeding his bleeding corpse to the grinder at the Smiley Cat food plant.
Fuelled by hated and motivated by revenge, Big Scar Wu has risen from hell as Smiley Cat, bringing with him an army of Jiang Shi. Vowing to destroy the Sun On Yee and lead Hong Kong’s most feared criminal empire, there’s only one person that can stop him. Seeking out the most powerful of Chinese magic, Wei Shen must face against the ghosts of previously defeated Triads, sending the dead back to hell once and for all.
The Nightmare in North Point DLC will be available this Halloween for Steam, Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network. If you’re looking for a good deal on Sleeping Dogs, it’s 50% off on Steam until October 22nd.
