Sleeping Dogs costume pack adds Hitman, Deus Ex, Just Cause characters

Sleeping Dogs players will be able to make protagonist Wei Shen look like Agent 47, Adam Jensen or Rico Rodriguez this Wednesday, when co-developers United Front Games and Square Enix London Studios release the game's Square Enix Character Pack.

The add-on, which costs $1.99 on PlayStation Network and Steam, and 160 Microsoft Points on Xbox Live Marketplace, includes character skins from three of Square Enix's games: Agent 47 from the upcoming Hitman: Absolution, Adam Jensen from 2011's Deus Ex: Human Revolution and Rico Rodriguez from 2010's Just Cause 2.

The Agent 47 costume includes a silenced weapon and reduces heat from the fuzz, while the Jensen outfit's armor offers a 33 percent reduction in the damage Shen takes and comes with a "futuristic, fully automatic combat rifle," according to Square Enix. Rodriguez's skin — which lets Shen hijack cars from a greater distance — is already unlocked within Sleeping Dogs for players who have a Just Cause 2 save file on their hard drive, but the DLC pack adds Rico's Signature Pistol and its explosive shells.

Sleeping Dogs originally launched in August on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Its first campaign DLC, the Halloween-themed Nightmare in North Point expansion, came out on Oct. 30; the Square Enix Character Pack will be available on Nov. 14. You can view images of the three character skins above.
