Fans of Hong Kong cinema won’t have to think too hard to pick the references in the newest batch of Sleeping Dogs DLC. The Zodiac Tournament is an homage, a love letter, to the classic Bruce Lee film Enter the Dragon, with Wei Shen stepping into the black kung-fu pants of the master.
Invited to an exclusive combat tournament on a hidden island off the coast of Hong Kong, Wei Shen faces the ultimate test of his mastery of martial arts, taking on the world’s greatest warriors in a fight… to the death.
A crumbling temple complex on the remote Zodiac Island plays host to a series of ancient arenas. You guessed it, “each more complex and deadly than the last” (they were hardly going to get easier now, right?). We’re looking at the traditional spiked ceilings and deadly fire pits, but – honestly – the bigger concern is the cold-blooded killers who give a new definition to “Mixed Martial Arts”, coming from every discipline of close-quarters combat.
Wei’s got a few new skills at his fingertips, but will that be enough to defeat everyone in his path so he can take on the island’s big boss?
The Zodiac Tournament for Sleeping Dogs is available right now for 400 MS Points on Xbox 360, and US$5.00 on PS3. Enjoy!
