Gaming Update: 'Football Manager 2015,' 'Ryse: Son of Rome,' 'Sleeping Dogs'

This week's Gaming Update brings you news about 'Football Manager 2015,' 'Ryse: Son of Rome,' and 'Sleeping Dogs.'

Football Manager 2015 Gets a Release Date

SEGA has confirmed that Football Manager 2015 will arrive in November for PC, Mac and Linux.

Details regarding the soccer management sim are sparse right now; however fans who register to become an SI Insider prior to Sept. 1 will receive a 10-percent discount code. And if you pre-order the game, you will gain access to the Beta version, which is slated to be released about two weeks before the official launch date.

Sales of Football Manager 2014 did not live up to expectations, partly because a cracked version of the game kept popping up online. But since then, its lone competitor in the soccer manager simulation arena bowed out. Electronic Arts opted not to continue its FIFA Manager series.

'Ryse: Son of Rome' Coming to PC

Deep Silver announced that Ryse will come to PC this fall. The PC version will include all the DLC that has been released thus far for Xbox One and will include support for 4K resolution.

During a recent interview with Kotaku, senior producer Brian Chambers assured fans that the port is not poorly constructed or the result of a last-minute cash grab by the company to address its recent financial troubles. He said, "We've been working on this for months. It's nothing we've pulled together. I've personally been on this project as a senior producer for months. It's important that it's not just a port. We didn't go, 'Let's just shove it on PC and be done.' We dug into it and did a lot on the engineering side to actually get it to 4K. So it's the first 4K game to come out of Crytek."

'Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition' Coming in October

When it is released on Oct. 14 for PS4, Xbox One and PC, Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition will bring the popular 2012 title to consoles. The remastered edition will include a 28-page concept art book and all the DLC that has been released for the title, including "Year of the Snake" and "Nightmare in North Point."

"We're giving old and new fans a lot [of] reasons to pick up the game, as we've gone beyond just increasing resolution and running at 1080p," said senior producer Dan Sochan in a statement. "We listened to fans: we tuned gameplay, we added to the ambience of Hong Kong, increased audio fidelity and pushed the visuals further than we could on the previous generation of consoles."
