What makes a good man? In Hong Kong it will take more than doing the right thing. It will take loyalty and honour, no matter which side of the law you are on. But when you are undercover and playing for both sides, loyalty and honour become words you should use carefully. Next week sees the release of ‘Sleeping Dogs,’ the highly anticipated undercover cop drama from United Front Games and Square Enix London Studios.
Developed by United Front Games in collaboration with Square Enix London Studios, ‘Sleeping Dogs’ is a gritty and visceral open world cop drama set in the vibrant city of Hong Kong. Taking the role of undercover cop Wei Shen, players are tasked with taking down one of the world’s most fearsome criminal organisations from the inside.
Offering players an island packed with action, every street corner, market stall, harbour dock or city skyscraper can become an opportunity for intense shoot-outs, adrenaline-fuelled street races and intense, brutal martial arts combat. Featuring one of the most intuitive and imaginative combat systems, ‘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 from 17th August 2012 for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and Windows PCs.
