Sleeping Dogs will give bonus to Just Cause 2 owners

Eurogamer reported today that Square Enix will be offering a unique new perk to Sleeping Dogs for their loyal customers who also purchased one of their previous titles, Just Cause 2. 

Anybody with a Just Cause 2 save file on their Xbox 360, PS3, or PC will get access to a free downloadable outfit themed on the clothing of the main character from JC2. But the more interesting part is that the outfit will confer a buff to the vehicle hijacking skill, allowing you to make "stunt-like" hijacks from further away.

We haven't seen this ability in action, but it actually sounds like it could be a lot of fun. Depending on how big the buff is. We're hoping it's huge. Like hijack-a-dude-from-the-top-of-a-building huge. That's probably unrealistic, but we're still hoping it makes the action more acrobatic, and encourages gamers to try new moves.

Don't have a copy of Just Cause 2? No problem, because it's a measly $10 download on Amazon, and it's routinely on sale for even less on Steam. Also, you should just buy it on its own merits because it's an amazing sandbox game. You can check out a few screenshots of the new duds in action at the EG link above.

    I don't care about the skins, but the fact they're doing something this hokey makes me quite giddy.

    Just turn the voices off completely. They will make your ears bleed. No joke. It is a pretty cool game otherwise.

    Just Cause 2 was not an amazing anything. Still tired of hearing that,

    Have you even played it? The shooting system and the voice-acting sucked yes, but the shear size of the playable area and the ability to do stuff that hadn't been seen before in a sandbox game is what makes it so amazing.

    Dude from reading your comment alone you and I share very similar opinion. That being said, PLAY JUST CAUSE @. You will not regret it!

    Hm... Just Cause 2 is, alongside Darksiders, two of the games I've previously missed and been interested to still try, I've got a significant backlog of games currently, but this is a small, but good incentive and an excuse for me to finally get that game. Though I might still wait a little bit, as much as I'm looking forward to Sleeping Dogs, I'm waiting for the reviews first. Liked the True Crime games enough, but they have a bad history of absurd bugs and glitchy AI, and I am still kinda afraid this could appear in SD.
