Prepare to tear up the streets of Hong Kong in the next explosive, mission-based add-on pack for Sleeping Dogs. Unleash the firepower of the game’s first weaponised vehicle: an upgradeable supercar with roof-mounted machine guns, four-wheel steering and an EMP pulse weapon.

Drug smuggling is big business for Hong Kong’s triad gangs and Wei Shen’s long-time friend Dr Tang has created the ultimate vehicle to turn the tide of the turf wars: a fully weaponised supercar. Uprated and upgradeable, the DZS-90 will give Wei Shen enough armour and firepower to take control of business and seize the streets back from the rival 18K gang. With new upgrades and add-ons available after each assignment, including twin concealed roof-mounted machine guns, four-wheel steering, an electronic magnetic pulse, the DZS-90 builds into Sleeping Dogs’ ultimate vehicle for those with an appetite for destruction.

Featuring five new action-packed story missions, rain firepowered justice down on the drug-dealing denizens of Hong Kong island in Wheels of Fury, available now for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC (320MSP, $3.99, €2.99, £2.39).

Developed by United Front Games in collaboration with Square Enix London Studios, Sleeping Dogs is a gritty and visceral open world cop drama set in the vibrant city of Hong Kong. Taking the role of undercover cop Wei Shen, players are tasked with taking down one of the world’s most fearsome criminal organisations from the inside. Offering players an island packed with action, every street corner, market stall, harbour dock or city skyscraper can become an opportunity for intense shoot-outs, adrenaline-fuelled street races and intense, brutal martial arts combat. Featuring one of the most intuitive and imaginative combat systems, Sleeping Dogs empowers players to perform an extensive set of martial arts moves, singlehandedly taking on numerous opponents. Players perform bone-crunching kicks and combos, vicious counters and a cinematic set of environmental takedowns making use of countless real-world items from circular saws to phone booths, incinerators to refrigerator doors.

Sleeping Dogs is available now for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and Windows PCs.
