A fighting tournament on a hidden island, you say?
As previously expressed by United Front Games, there’s plenty more downloadable content planned for Sleeping Dogs across PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. While much of it is the obligatory cosmetic- and item-focused stuff that many of us aren’t concerned with, there is at least one more substantial add-on on the way.
It all starts on November 14 with the Dragon Master Pack, which is essentially a combination of five separate pre-order packs. United Front is also releasing the Drunken Fist Pack, the Square Enix Character Pack (which looks rather funny), and the Gangland Style Pack.
What seems the most interesting is the Zodiac Tournament Pack — it introduces new gameplay to Sleeping Dogs. The premise revolves around an island off the coast of Hong Kong that has fights to the death, because of course it does. Beyond a pair of outfits, there’s supposed to be multiple arenas, new enemies, bosses, and cutscenes. Pardon me while I rewatch Enter the Dragon.
Dragon Master Pack
Featuring five pre-order packs in one, the huge Dragon Master Pack is the ultimate collection of killer content for Sleeping Dogs, adding high-speed highway shootouts, martial arts monks, police patrol missions and more. Each of the below packs are included, also available to purchase separately:
- Triad Enforcer Pack
It’s a high-speed shoot-out in Triad Highway; armed with a high-capacity machine gun, fight a tide of Triads… after your head. Death by 1,000 Cuts puts you in a brutal fight club taking on the Triads with a razor-sharp golden cleaver. Wear the Triad Enforcer outfit for added Face and more punishing damage.
- Police Protection Pack
Catch criminals like a true SWAT officer with the Police Protection Pack. Unlock the exclusive High Speed police mission featuring the SWAT outfit, SWAT Police Cruiser car and SWAT Assault Rifle.
- Martial Arts Pack
Unleash the power of the Shaolin with the Martial Arts Pack. Unlock the Shaolin Warrior outfit (with increased melee damage), the Shaolin Showdown mission and Wing Chun dummy decoration for your safe house.
- GSP Pack
Dress like Mixed Martial Arts champion Georges “Rush” St-Pierre with this collection of shorts, t-shirts and bandana, and devastate your enemies with GSP’s signature flying punch. Also adds increased grappling and throwing damage.
- Deep Undercover Pack
All the style of an undercover agent. Unlock the Plain Clothes Detective outfit (with a reduced heat penalty), the Undercover Police Ghost Car and a CB Radio for your safehouse.
Drunken Fist Pack
With the Drunken Fist pack, Wei unleashes this exclusive fighting style. While in combat, filling the face meter will enable Wei to drink from a flask of potent alcohol and perform unique special moves and powerful counters unavailable to the sober man!
- Rediscover a classic fighting style with this unique outfit!
- Sway like a drunkard, hit like a mule…
- Enter the Drunken Stance and perform special moves and counters
Square Enix Character Pack
Become a silent assassin, augmented warrior or king of chaos! Wei Shen dons new disguises in this pack, with three new outfits and three new weapons from Square Enix’s Hitman, Just Cause and Deus Ex games. Each outfit includes its own buff and signature weapon.
- Hitman outfit
Agent 47’s suit grants reduced attention from the police and comes with a silenced Silverballer. Assassinate your enemies with stealth, Hitman style.
- Deus Ex outfit
The Sarif Industries armor reduces gunfire damage by 33% and comes with a futuristic, fully automatic combat rifle. This technology really is decades ahead of its time.

The Rico Rodriguez custom outfit allows you to hijack vehicles from a greater distance and comes with Rico’s signature pistol, which can fire explosive shells. Liberate those drivers at high speed!
Gangland Style Pack
Get Wei Shen freshly inked-up in a trio of tattoo schemes in this alternate costume pack. Topple the Triads in street style with a Japanese Yakuza, Russian Mafia, or Maori Mongrel Mob tattoo, each with their own buff.

Painstakingly applied with the traditional 46 needle irezumi brush, this tattoo will slow your heat rate by 50%
