The hero of United Front's hit open-world title spent most of the game undercover, acting more as a gangster and stirring up trouble to win the trust of the Hong Kong underworld. Now, Wei Shen finally gets to be an out-in-the-open law enforcement official in the new Year of the Snake DLC for Sleeping Dogs.

The teaser trailer offers up details about a crazy cult trying to blow things up and Wei Shen gets busted back to being a lowly beat cop. But, really, it's all about wielding tear gas for me. There's no joy better than getting to make swarms of random strangers cry. Trust me on this.


Players will get the usual helping of new weapons and achievements in Year of the Snake, which is out today for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 at a cost of $5.99/560 Microsoft Points.
