Sleeping Dogs catapults players into the role of undercover cop Wei Shen, tasked with taking down one of the world?s most fearsome criminal organisations 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.
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. !
“In Sleeping Dogs, combat packs more than a punch. Brutal ballistic battles are punctuated with all manner of Gun Fu: pack a pistol when missions are challenging, vault from cover into kill-extending slow motion or take to the streets for high-speed kill streaks.”
Sleeping Dogs will be available August 2012 for the PlayStation®3, Xbox 360® and PC. For more information about the game, visit:

Square Portal is proud to present its second ‘site commercial’ which this time is dedicated to Sleeping Dogs which is developed by United Front Games. This trailer is meant to show some cool sides of the game, but to get deeper picture what the game really is about, we recommend you to take a closer look to the official trailers. However, in nutcase you would call this game a mix of GTA, Deus Ex and Just Cause with greater combat, but it is more than just that.
Songs which we used in this trailer are: “Kurd Maverick – “Hell Yeah – Original Mix” &
“Knife Party – Internet Friends.”

What is Sleeping Dogs?
Sleeping Dogs is an open world crime drama video game which is developed by United Front Games in conjunction with Square Enix London Studios. The game will be published by Square Enix. Sleeping Dogs will be released on August 14, 2012 for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The events of the game are placed in Hong Kong and focuses on an undercover operation to infiltrate the Triads.
The game was originally in development as Black Lotus. In 2009 the new name, True Crime: Hong Kong, was announced as the third installment and a reboot of the True Crime series. As a result of the game’s high development budget and delays, it was cancelled by Activision in 2011. Six months later Square Enix had picked up the publishing rights to the game, but the game was re-announced as Sleeping Dogs in 2012 as Square Enix did not purchase the True Crime name rights.
Square Enix has released the E3 trailer and some new screenshots. The game is about Triad Bureau of Hong Kong Police Detective Wei Shen infiltrate the Sun On Yee Triad in order to bring down the criminal faction.
