The Sun On Yee respect tradition; honour and discretion are the watchwords, brutal combat the tool of the trade. As players take-on those who would wage war amongst the Triad, an incredible array of combat moves and upgrades awaits. New bone-crunching kicks and devastating combos unlock as players earn face amongst their peers and respect from those who would challenge them.In Sleeping Dogs, the city itself doubles as an arsenal of deadly weaponry as real-world items from phone booths to TV sets, engine blocks to combat fish deliver a vicious and violent end to all who stand in your way.
Developed by United Front Games (ModNation Racers), Sleeping Dogs (previously known as True Crime: Hong Kong) puts players in the boots of undercover cop Wei Shen. It's headed to Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC from August 16th.
