Sleeping Dogs is the freshly renamed continuation of the True Crime series, coming from Square Enix London and United Front Games. It’s an open world cop drama set in Hong Kong, and as such is a dead ringer for some martial arts action. Indeed it’s definitely going for the Hong Kong cinema vibe, with players taking on the role of an undercover cop who must take on the more vicious members of the Triad underworld.
So there will be combos and kicks aplenty, as well as shoot outs and street races to mix up the action. A new trailer, or ‘gameplay highlight’ has just been released to show off the games combat, and is packed full of snapping bones, roundhouses and some extraordinarily violent takedowns: say hello meathook!
Make sure and check it out below. Sleeping dogs will be coming to PS3, Xbox 360 and PC in August of this year.
