Open-world brawler Sleeping Dogs looks set to receive a DLC pack based around the Chinese New Year, which takes place on February 10.

Neither publisher Square Enix or developer United Front Games has officially confirmed the existence of the Year of the Snake DLC, although a brief teaser trailer and a leaked PlayStation 3 Trophy list have both surfaced online.

The four Trophies (detailed on Exophase) suggest that the pack will include defusing bombs and dealing with cultists, along with gobbling up a fleet of collectibles and other secondary mission objectives.

Square Enix has released a good chunk of Sleeping Dogs DLC since its release in August 2012, including undead-themed expansion Nightmare in North Point. Sony also announced this week that the game would also be available to PlayStation Plus subscribers for February.

Sleeping Dogs was awarded a respectable 8.0 in its GameSpot review last year, with Carolyn calling the game "a fun-filled Hong Kong getaway that will leave you with many happy memories."
