Georges St-Piere (better known by his fans as GSP) has teamed up with Square Enix and United Front Games as consultant on Sleeping Dogs. This 5'10", 170 lbs mean, lean, fighting-machine is the current Welterweight Champion of the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) and has won 24 of his 22 matches. His background includes Kyokuyshin Karate, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Boxing and Muay Thai. Needless to say he’s a lethal weapon and well versed in martial arts.
It’s because of this vast experience that we knew GSP would be the ideal man to help us craft Sleeping Dogs into the Hong Kong brawler we know it deserves to be. But aside from extensively helping us develop the combat system, GSP is also lending his signature ‘flying punch’ move and outfit to the limited edition version of the game.
Which leads us neatly onto the subject of Sleeping Dogs release date. Sleeping Dogs will be coming to UK and other PAL territories on the 17th August 2012, and 14th August 2012 in North America, for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. The limited Edition of Sleeping Dogs contains the following additional content:
‘Georges St. Pierre (GSP)’ content:
- GSP’s signature “flying punch”
- Exclusive GSP outfit including T-shirts, headband and shorts
- The GSP outfit unlocks the “flying punch” and increases grappling and throwing damage
‘Police Protection’ content:
- Exclusive “High Speed” Mission
- Exclusive HK Police SWAT Outfit
- Exclusive assault rifle
- Exclusive SWAT Police Vehicle
The limited edition pack will be available at all UK games retailers for consumers who pre-order the game. Please check with your preferred retailer for further details. Exclusive content for the digitally downloadable PC version of Sleeping Dogs will be announced at a later date.
