If the "undead" are jiang shi, it will at least be thematically correct. If they're plain old zombies, then shame on you, UFG.

I loved this game for it's realism. I want to spend more time in this world, but I'm not sure what to think about a zombie mode.

 

I pretty much built a new pc just to play this game with full graphics since I couldn't get a solid framerate with high settings on my old pc. I really want to like whatever story they can add to it, but zombies seem kind of cheesy & opposite of the gritty realism that attracted me to the game in the first place.

DLC for a horribly overrated game...

Generic zombie mode. Sigh. I would perfer an actual continuation or some form of expansion of the SD universe. There is alot of potential!

I like Sleeping Dogs and zombie games, but this game doesn't need a zombie mode.

My copy is coming this week, I hope I love the game enough to get this DLC as I love story DLC. I also hope this DLC will offer so more achievements!

DLC's should cost 1 $ if they get you 'a few hours' worth' of gaming! and 5$ if they give you tons of content and playtime! Noooo cash is important here :(

so many games try to put zombie in where they don't belong -.- either make a zombie game or don't, just don't make a game and add zombies to it as extra crap

So when are we getting the racing DLC?  The SWAT DLC?  etc?

 

I'm actually halfway through the plot, but have completed all the side missions & collectibles.  I'm hoping for more side stuff to keep me interested in the main game proper.  So the sooner with the side DLC, the better.

 

Fun game!

Have anyone of you ever played True Crime: Streets of LA? ANYONE?!? Then why are you all complaining? As far as i remember there was a campaign about undead and stuff. And it was awesome btw. First thing you think about when you hear a word 'undead' is a zombie? Jeez man, new fags these days remind me of hipsters.

I love zombie games and movies, but this DLC doesn't fit with this game... I would rather have another triad or police corruption as DLC. Or maybe this DLC takes place when RE6 outbreak happens...jk

I will probably get it because I liked the game so much. BUT I much rather have additional Triad and police cases to solve then handling Zombies... I mean, it would be cool if you could consolidate power by becoming a "Dragon" (head of one of the Triad families) or a Chief police officer. I really liked the story, it's a shame they didn't use it further with this DLC.

Don't like zombies but I can't resist more content for this game. As a sidenote, kung-fu zombies? That's original.

I am so tired of Zombies. Doubt I'll get this based solely on the zombies. Ohwell, nice to see them adding substantial content anyway even if it may not be to my liking. ^^

Hmmm, the undead. Original idea is original.

I enjoyed this game more than I thought I would, mainly because of the hand to hand combat. So many other games coming out though, not sure if I will keep up with the DLC.
