New, 91 comments

Square Enix will re-release United Front Games' open-world action game Sleeping Dogs for PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One on Oct. 14.

The Definitive Edition release will include the original game and its downloadable content, which is listed as an $85 value, the listing says. The Amazon listing has a retail price of $59.99. Amazon lists a pre-order incentive for Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition: limited edition artbook packaging that includes a 28-page book of concept art from the game.

Publisher Square Enix also used the "Definitive Edition" designation for its re-release of Tomb Raider on PS4 and Xbox One. Developer United Front Games assisted in the making of that port.

Update: Square Enix later confirmed that Sleeping Dogs Definitive Edition will be released Oct. 10 in Europe and Oct. 14 in North America on PS4, Windows PC and Xbox One. This edition will include 24 pieces of DLC, including the Year of the Snake, Nightmare in North Point and Wheels of Fury mission packs. We've edited the article above to reflect this.

"We're giving old and new fans a lot reasons to pick up the game, as we've gone beyond just increasing resolution and running at 1080p," said Dan Sochan, senior producer at United Front Games, in a press release. "We listened to the fans: We tuned gameplay, we added to the ambience of Hong Kong, increased audio fidelity and pushed the visuals further than we could on the previous generation of consoles."

Square Enix also released three screenshots from the Definitive Edition, along with a live-action trailer; you can see the images and video below.
