Sleeping Dogs PC Will Include Two Technological Bonuses; System Specs Revealed

Those who plan to purchase the PC version of Sleeping Dogs can look forward to two technological bonuses that the open world game will not offer to console players: a high-resolution texture pack, as well as support for multi-monitor set-ups. Those two things should combine to make the mouse and keyboard offering the best of the bunch – at least for powerful rigs that can support all of the extra detail that will come with those improved textures.

If you’re wondering whether your current gaming computer will be up to the task of running Sleeping Dogs‘ Hong Kong action then you’re in luck. Square Enix has released a detailed list of specifications that one’s rig will have to meet in order to be able to do so.
