Sleeping Dogs Developer's Triad Wars Is PC Exclusive

Triad Wars, set in the Sleeping Dogs universe, takes the setting into an online "open-world" game that is exclusively for the PC. United Front, the developer of both Sleeping Dogs and this title, is said to be partnering with Nexon to make it a free-to-play game, at least last we heard. Suddenly, PC-exclusivity makes a lot of sense. The game is currently in closed beta, which they are accepting applications for, but it is set to launch in 2015.

The most weird part, to me at least, is that Square Enix is still involved with the title and Nexon is mentioned nowhere (outside of the aforementioned statement by United Front's CEO's from last June). United Front is definitely the developer, okay, but how are the other two companies involved, specifically? Did Nexon get pushed out? How is Square involved, other than hosting the accounts? No clue. Perhaps this will be answered in tomorrow's Reddit AMA. We'll see.

Triad Wars is expected to be Free-to-Play and officially launch in 2015.

Don't lie about Sleeping Dogs

Sleeping Dogs is apparently not a part of the True Crime series and the original title True Crime: Hong Kong was misleading.  Then again, it is totally not a Grand Theft Auto clone either.  Whatever this game where you play a cop pretending to be a member of the Triad, in theory undercover but more likely just getting to live out a submerged fantasy actually is, The Tech Report has some advice for you.   Simply enjoy the game, go on a killing spree, drive around pointlessly or even do some missions, don't think about it just play.

If you neither want to think or to play, then PC Perspective can fulfill your need.  Right after the podcast the four of us are going to try streaming a little Borderlands 2 action, so grab some popcorn, your favourite beverages and kick back and relax at PCPer Live!
