Triad Wars AMA talks co-op, the Sleeping Dogs world, and more

Did you like Sleeping Dogs? I sure did, and so I’m more than a little curious about Triad Wars, the online spinoff from United Front Games that’s currently in testing. Fortunately for me, the devs did an AMA on Reddit yesterday that answered a few of my questions.

Topics include how the new online multiplayer title fits into the Sleeping Dogs world (it’s set just prior to the original game, and players will be “part of the problem that Wei Shen was sent to clean up”), the game’s engine (the proprietary Sleeping Dogs engine “with lots of nifty improvements”), and the addition of female avatars (not yet, but eventually).

UFG also says that Triad Wars is not an MMO, but that it is expanding its multiplayer features to include co-op. The dev team will be answering additional questions on Twitch this Thursday.

Sleeping Dogs had a charm to it that the thug-life wannabe simulator GTA series could never match.
Also, in that game I can drive on the right side of the road.
And by “right” I mean left.

Cool concept.
Although I wouldn’t be shocked if they get hit with a C&D.

Once the female avatars are in, I might give it a shot, I’ve heard good things about sleeping dogs, even sat around and watched a few let’s plays and Total Biscuit’s ‘WTF Is’ on it.

From what I read on their website, I was led to believe it WAS an MMOG, where you can see other players.

I won a key from PC Gamer, but with the lack of current windowed mode not working (post on their forums asking if I am the only person with this problem), and now here it saying it isn’t a place for me to see other players, I am less inclined to play it. I wasn’t looking for a single player experience. I have enough of those unfinished already.

I am very curious how this is going to work out. 
It really has the feel of a single-player game with shoehorned-in online elements. I suppose time will tell.

Just as I finally got into the closed beta for Triad Wars last week (the first closed beta I’ve managed to get into in years), my desktop computer gave up its ghost. :(
At least I have a new Alienware Area 51 on order, so it should look even better when I finally do get to play it next weekend.
