Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition’s Release Date Confirmed for Mac

The open-world action-adventure title Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition will be heading to Mac on March 31, publisher Feral Interactive announced on Wednesday.

Sleeping Dogs, which was developed by United Front Games and published by Square Enix, was originally released on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC (Windows only) in 2012.

In 2014, Square Enix re-released Sleeping Dogs on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC as the Definitive Edition, a title that included all DLC and supported enhanced visuals, sound and gameplay.

The Mac version of the Definitive Edition will have the same content and improvements that came to its PC and console counterparts, according to Feral Interactive.

“Open-world city games are few and far between on Mac,” says David Stephen, managing director at Feral Interactive. “Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition for Mac offers players a thrilling gaming experience that’s right up there with the best in the genre.”

As well as its release date announcement, Feral Interactive has released a live-action trailer for the Mac version of the Definitive Edition.
