Square Enix has announced they have teamed up with ModNation Racers developer United Front Games for a new open-world action title, Sleeping Dogs. Dubbed a “cop drama,” Sleeping Dogs takes place in Hong Kong as players take on the role of Wei Shen, an undercover cop who is struggling in his assignment to infiltrate the Hong Kong Triads.
Sleeping Dogs is scheduled to be released during the second half of 2012 for the 360, PC, and PS3.
Offering players an island packed with action, every street corner, market stall, harbor 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.
