Loyalty and discretion... watch words of the Sun On Yee, one of Hong Kong's most brutal Triad gangs (2:08)
Square Enix has released a new video for Sleeping Dogs, an all-new open-world game inspired by classic Hollywood and Asian cinema style action thrillers. Developed by United Front Games in collaboration with Square Enix London Studios, Sleeping Dogs catapults players into the role of undercover cop Wei Shen, tasked with taking down one of the world's most fearsome criminal organizations from the inside the Hong Kong Triads. As players explore the bustling and crowded Hong Kong island, through its neon-lit side streets and sprawling street markets, an incredible story unfolds of loyalty and betrayal, where Wei begins to question his own motives as he is sucked in deeper than he could ever imagine. Sleeping Dogs empowers players to perform an extensive set of martial arts moves, singlehandedly taking on numerous opponents. Players perform bone-crunching kicks and combos, vicious counters and a cinematic set of environmental takedowns making use of countless real-world items from circular saws to phone booths, incinerators to refrigerator doors. Sleeping Dogs will be available in the second half of 2012 for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3.
