Sleeping Dogs brings high-res textures, DX11 and multi-monitor support to PC

It looks like Sleeping Dogs will not be a sloppy PC port, as today Square Enix announced a bunch of features that will be exclusive to the PC version of the game. Anyone with a capable PC can enjoy DirectX 11 features, multi-GPU and multi-monitor support: Square Enix mentions the latter will work with "EyeFinity or similar multi-monitor setup".

A high-resolution texture pack will also be baked in from launch, as will "increased world density" which one could take to mean there will be more cool objects present in their version of Hong Kong. Plus you get everything else console gamers will enjoy, such as, you know, the actual game and all its open-world crime-action-fighting-drama-awesomeness.
