Sleeping Dogs
First Sleeping Dogs Campaign DLC Revealed, Called Nightmare in North Point
Written By
View author's profile

Sleepings Dogs' first mission pack has been detailed. It has zombies. And vampires.

Called Nightmare in North Point, the DLC tells the story of a gang member tortured and killed by the 18K. He then rises from the grave with an army of the undead to threaten Hong Kong.

There’s some other details too, which sound odd. In the DLC Wei gets (kinda) superpowers via some magical tea. There’s also some evil Chinese vampires plus a peachwood sword with which to kill them.

All of this is filtered through Chinese mythology, hence the slight cultural disconnect.

Nightmare in North Point will be available from 30th October. No pricing details were mentioned.

Oh and don't forget, Sleeping Dogs' Street Racer DLC is out tomorrow. More on that here.

Zombies? Seriously? I love Zombies and all but not every game needs them!

Can I make a request? As this is an achievement website is there any chance that when adding news items that say dlc is out that we make it a practice to put a line in it to say whether or not the dlc includes achievements or not. Or that no mention has been made yet. Think it would be a useful addition...

I hope they will be the asian style zombies and vampires as you don't see enough of them types in games! Darkstalkers is the only one I can think of at the moment that uses some of them.

In most articles, I believe they do just that. Achievements being the focus and all.

Perhaps they don't know the details of the DLC achievements, or if there will be any at all yet.

Last couple of things I looked at didn't mention it but I'm guessing most of the time it's the developers fault.

I hope they are the old school, traditional chinese vampires, hopping everywhere!
That'd be awesome, a la Mr Vampire! :)

This game was fine the way it was,why add zombies,just shows how simple minded developers can be nowadays.No original dlc any more,just the same idea ripped off from other games.

Fuck Square Enix for even making this. They've destroyed something great. Because there's just no such thing as too many zombie shooters, right?

Couldn't we have had just a regular under cover cop DLC before getting the supernatural one?

Why does everything have to have zombies these days? GTA IV didn't need them, Sleeping Dogs doesn't need it either.

Zombies are great. The best DLC in all games have had zombies/vampires in them.

For example Red Dead, Infamous, etc.

HEY MORONS, IT'S DLC. If you don't like the undead idea, don't buy the DLC. It's that simple. How adding OPTIONAL DLC that you don't like ruins a great game is beyond me. The game is great now, and it will still be great when you play it without having the DLC. Hell, it might even still be great WITH the DLC. You won't know until you stop hating something that you haven't played yet.

Lol this was hilarious, @ everyone dissing it, you haven't played or seen the DLC yet so how can you possibly know whether zombies will be like in other games? Can't really imagining them not doing something unique with this idea.

Ehh, took to long for them to release DLC for this game. It was way to short to begin with.

@#4 Now you wouldn't want that simply because you decide whether or not to buy DLC based on that alone, would you? I enjoy cheevos, but hardly care whether or not DLC has them if it sounds fun enough...

OT: This sounds wicked. Hopefully GOTY will come out next year with all of the DLC as I have yet to get it=)

In a funny way this harks back to the original True Crime: LA. That game went utterly insane in the last hour or so.

Sleeping dogs was amazing and honestly I'm just glad to have DLC to give me some direction in the game.

Really zombies? Every game ends up with a zombie plague. How about more Triad stuff, more fight clubs or at least an original thought. Don't get me wrong I loved this game and will reluctantly buy the DLC. The racing was not the best part of the game but I've been waiting for too long for some sort of DLC.

Once they started begging everyone to force Pork Bun Guy into a meme, I knew zombies were inevitable. This is the Futurama-quoting market they want.

Wonder if Wei will turn into a zombie at the end like John Marston did? That would be sick as hell!Plus kung-fu zombies.
