PC Version

#1 Posted by Matrix (1455 posts) -

So this game is looking a lot better since they first announced they were bringing the game back from the dead. Regarding the PC version, think it'll be a terrible port with glitches or fully functional? I love playing the Saints Row games on PC for one thing...

I'm considering this game, but yeah I wonder how well it will play with keybd+mouse.

My biggest concern though, will the game still be fun if you just take off and explore, screw around.  Yes it's open world, but is there anything to do outside of missions, scripted chase sequences, etc.

Just been looking at steam forum and one post has this info.

PC Showcase


Rest easy, PC gamers, we didn't forget you. You already know about the awesome perks for Team Fortress 2 players who preorder on Steam. But even if you're not into TF2, Sleeping Dogs is set to ship with a stunning set of PC-specific features to bring Hong Kong island to life. If you have the rig, we have the graphical enhancements, hardware optimisations and the latest AMD and Nvidia features you crave.

The high-resolution texture pack updates the game to a new level, bringing eye-watering detail and crisp clear rendering to everything from city skyscrapers to crumbling ancient temples. Another layer of depth is added at higher resolutions, using increased small object detail to render items from a far greater distance with an incredible sense of scale and detail. In-game shadows receive a significant upgrade with support for high-resolution shadow textures, high quality shadow filters and support for Screen Space Ambient Occlusion. Sleeping Dogs features performance enhancements for both dual and quad core PC setups, enhanced performance for Nvidia SLI and AMD Crossfire, support for keyboard and mouse setup (including key mapping) and optimisations for both 3D and multi monitors on both AMD and Nvidia hardware.

Need to see it with your own eyes? We've captured some pretty gameplay footage from the PC version to convince the skeptics. Make sure you watch in 1080 HD!
