Sleeping Dogs Asks Players To Pick Next DLC
Here’s an interesting way to get people enthused about spending money. Square Enix is asking players to choose the next DLC for their surprise hit Sleeping Dogs. It seems they’re contemplating two different DLC packets which, so they claim, they haven’t actually bothered to make yet. Whichever of the two packets fans indicate a preference for, that’s the one they’ll be selling.
The two proposed packets are:
1) The Sun Wukong (Monkey King) Pack; based on the classic Chinese epic Journey to the West (in which the Monkey King begins as a statue, then through the power of Taosim becomes a living Monkey who could actually kick some serious ass. Also, he’s a bit of a trickstery jerk.), the packet would add a Monkey King skin, an unbreakable themed melee weapon, a melee damage buff and a themed car.
2) Hong Kong Fire Fighter Pack; this would give players one of the most requested items, which is apparently a fire axe. Intended also as a tribute to the HKFD, the packet would come with a custom ‘fire fan’, a firefighter outfit, a fire axe (also unbreakable), and increased damage resistance.
Of course, I don’t believe for a second that these two DLC packets haven’t been made yet. Guaranteed, I say, both of them will eventually be available. Still, as far as crass exploitation of the fans go, this is pretty cool, and underscores some of the coolness that makes Sleeping Dogs such a fun game.
