Sleeping Dogs is getting a next-gen facelift and more this fall.

United Front Games and Square Enix, the developer and publisher of Sleeping Dogs respectively, today announced the Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition. Slated to launch on October 14, 2014 in North America, this edition of the highly-acclaimed high-octane action-adventure boasts next-gen visuals and more.

What is “more” exactly, you ask? United Front Games Senior Producer Dan Sochan said to look forward to improvements in gameplay, in-game Hong Kong ambience and audio quality. Sochan added that the team hopes that the Definitive Edition caters to both old and new fans of the game.

24 pieces of downloadable content released since the original 2012 iteration are also integrated into the Definitive Edition. Included in the DLC are the Year of the Snake episode and the horror-themed add-on Nightmare in North Point.

Players of the Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition are casted as undercover cop Wei Shen in his struggle against Hong Kong’s Triads and his own personal demons. Featuring the same choice system allowing players to take missions for either the Cops or the Triad, also making a comeback are the intense martial arts system, Hollywood-style firefights, and pulse-pounding races.

The Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition releases October 14th, 2014 for the Playstation 4 and Xbox One in North America.

Report: Game of Thrones Creator Collaborating With FromSoftware

FromSoftware Game of Thrones

The writer of A Song of Ice and Fire, the book series behind the popular television show Game of Thrones, has reportedly been consulting on a FromSoftware title.

In a blog post on his official website, George R. R. Martin stated that he has “consulted on a video game out of Japan.”

Gematsu has reported that a contact familiar with FromSoftware—the Japanese development studio known for Dark SoulsBloodborne, and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice—has shared that Martin is working with the studio on a project known internally as “GR.”

According to Gematsu‘s contact, the project, which has been in development for three years, is an open-world game and will feature horse riding. The player will be able to visit several kingdoms and obtain ability by killing their leaders. Hidetaka Miyazaki, director of some of FromSoftware’s most acclaimed titles, is reportedly working on the game.

Gematsu reports that the title will be officially announced at Microsoft’s E3 press conference later this year.

YouTube channel Spawn Wave reported in March about a rumour regarding a potential collaboration between Martin and FromSoftware, so this recent report gives even more validity to the speculation. However, without any official word, the news should be taken with a grain of salt.
