Square Enix has released a new update for the PC version of Sleeping Dogs. This new patch comes with improved CPU timing to reduce issues where the game plays too quickly, as well as various fixes to improve stability and minimize crashes during gameplay. In addition, the mouse controls have been tweaked and United Front Games has added some new options. For example, while driving the camera no longer immediately auto-centers when you stop moving the mouse, the high-speed camera shake while driving has been reduced and mouse sensitivity no longer differs when Wei is and isn’t carrying a gun. You can view the entire changelog below and you can expect our Performance Analysis to be published really soon.
