Sleeping Dogs Go For A Drive
Sleeping Dogs, also known as the reincarnation of True Crime: Hong Kong, has a new trailer out. This one focuses primarily on the driving aspect of the game, and features a variety of high-speed shenanigans. From the look of things, Sleeping Dogs seems like it’s going to be in the same sort of physical universe as Just Cause and Saints Row; which is to say that you needn’t worry about the laws of physics getting in between you and a good time.
Full press release after the break.
Take high performance driving to the limit as over 65 vehicles become your tools to take-on the streets and waterways of Hong Kong. Participate in illegal street races where money, girls and status are the high-stakes rewards, taking on your challengers with expert driving and precision-placed ramming, sending any and all rivals into a well-timed spin. Let no criminal escape your relentless pursuit with high-speed action hijacks, leaping from vehicle to vehicle, or intense high-speed gun battles direct from the driver’s seat. In Sleeping Dogs, the streets are yours to take… how you get there is up to you.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.

Featuring one of the most intuitive and imaginative combat systems, Sleeping Dogs empowers players to perform an extensive set of martial arts moves, single-handedly 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 the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and Windows PCs.
