Nightmare in North Point to haunt Sleeping Dogs this Halloween

As Rockstar Games did with Red Dead Redemption and the Undead Nightmare expansion, Square Enix has announced that a timely new Sleeping Dogs piece of DLC will be ready to go for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC by Halloween.

Nightmare in North Point mixes it up, horror style, with a new single player story campaign centered around Smiley Cat and his undead horde of former triad gangsters.

Check out the screens and trailer, and read on for all the details.

Sleeping Dogs – Nightmare in North Point screens:

In life, Big Scar Wu was one of Hong Kong?s most ruthless triad gangsters. Feared as much by those who stood against him as those who stood by him in the Sun On Yee, it was decided by the Grand Dragon that he must be stopped. Looking to send a message, they had him stabbed 42 times before feeding his bleeding corpse to the grinder at the Smiley Cat cat food plant? his final resting place, in the food bowls of the city?s pet cats. It is said that if the wronged receive anything less than a proper burial, their spirit will almost certainly come back as a Hungry Ghost, damned to starve in the afterlife, feeding only on their hatred. You turn him into cat food and that?s pretty much guaranteed.

Now, Hell has a sense of humour. When Big Scar Wu arrived in the underworld and word spread of his demise, they renamed him Smiley Cat, much to his chagrin, with the name fuelling his bitterness with every utterance and driving his thirst for revenge. Rising from Hell and vowing to exact his revenge, Smiley Cat has raised an army of Jiang Shi, vowing to destroy the Sun On Yee and to create Hong Kong?s most fearsome criminal empire.

With the city in chaos and its citizens possessed, Wei Shen now faces a challenge far more sinister than any before. To save Hong Kong, he must seek out the most powerful of Chinese magic, endowing him with a power strong enough to take on Smiley Cat?s army of Jiang Shi and face-off against the ghosts of Triads he has defeated in the past, sending the dead back to Hell once and for all.
