More Sleeping Dogs DLC dropping in October

Details on Sleeping Dogs' first story-driven game expansion will not be revealed until October 14, but several mission and gear packs are set to drop throughout the month. Square Enix unveiled four new DLC packs for the open-world crime game today.

Twenty new cop missions are included in the SWAT Pack, more street races (what else?) make up the Street Racer Pack, and Sleeping Dogs' most powerful weapons and armor can be unlocked with the Tactical Soldier Pack. While release dates and prices will emerge for those packs in coming weeks, the Community Gift Pack will be made available for free with new content from developer United Front Games.

The new packs will join Sleeping Dogs' pre-existing selection of DLC content, most of which serves to boost in-game cash or reputation scores or unlock cars and clothes. More info on the game's first narrative expansion will be given at Sleeping Dogs' New York Comic Con panel.
