Inspired by classic Hollywood and Asian cinema style action thrillers, Sleeping Dogs is a gritty open-world cop drama set in the vibrant city of Hong Kong. Sleeping Dogs catapults players into the role of undercover cop Wei Shen, tasked with taking down one of the world’s most fearsome criminal organizations from the inside... the Hong Kong Triads. As players explore the bustling and crowded Hong Kong island, through its neon-lit side streets and sprawling street markets, an incredible story unfolds of loyalty and betrayal where Wei begins to question his own motives as he is sucked in deeper than he could ever imagine.
Step 1: Story
Complete the story by finishing all of the triad missions and cases marked with green shields and blue shields respectively. During this point you will be able to gather collectibles and do side missions. Also leveling up your Face, Triad and Cop status as much as possible.
So a lot of people are having trouble unlocking this, even though they have completed all the requirements. They all seem to be stuck at a certain percentage (ex. 91.10% / 100%). The method that seems to be fixing this is to go back and redo the First Martial Arts Club, the one next to the Kung Fu temple where you learn all your fighting moves.
Step 2: Collectibles
These aren't too bad to find. There are 4 different kinds of collectibles. Lockbox, Security Camera, Health Shrine and Jade Statues. After completing a certain task you will be able to view all kinds of collectibles on your map.
- Lockbox 100 in total.
- Security Camera 26 in total.
- Health Shrines 50 in total.
- Jade Statues 11 in total.
Here is a video showing you all the locations of all collectibles (Location only). Look at the achievements below for a video guide on where to find the appropriate collectibles. Or click HERE to also view the videos. Take this time to go out and finish any side mission you have not completed yet and any missing collectibles. This is also a good time to grind out any missing Stat Awards if you need to reach level 10 in Face, Triad or Cop. You can also replay missions if needed. Press and go to the Social Hub, tap a few time and you will be able to replay previous missions
This DLC is started from the main menu. The DLC CANNOT be replayed upon completion, so Cursed Gold is missable. There are two achievements in the DLC that are story-related and cannot be missed. There are ten collectibles in this DLC in the form of shrines. They are all located in North Point, so finding them is easy. The hardest part about this DLC is achieving all 5 Gold awards, so keep an eye out while playing to complete these with ease. While playing, you'll come across some Peachwood swords. USE these against the large demons, the Yaoguai. You'll need to kill 15 of them with the Peachwood sword. These guys are hard to find, so DO NOT ever kill one without a sword.
This DLC is started from the main menu. There are a total of four achievements that can be obtained through this DLC. Bomb Squad and Cult Master will be obtained through the storyline and cannot be missed. There are a total of 20 collectibles in the form of Evidence Bags scattered throughout Kennedy Town, Central, and Aberdeen which can be obtained during, or after the main storyline. Finding all the collectibles will unlock Goodie Monster. Lastly, there will be four yellow speech bubbles (Favors) and eight light blue police badges (Side Jobs) that appear on your map while playing through the DLC. These can be completed at any time during the DLC in order to obtain Hong Kong's Finest.
As good as Sleeping Dogs is, its name represents the game very well. Not everyone got around to playing it, which is a genuine shame. Packed with action, emotion and attainable gamerscore, Sleeping Dogs is the full package.
