First Look At Gameplay For Square Enix’s Sleeping Dogs

March 2, 2012, By Christian Davis

What was once known as True Crime: Streets of Hong Kong at Activision, has now found a new home at Square Enix under the name of Sleeping Dogs. When the acquisition first happened, we were treated with an entertaining and gritty live action trailer. As cool as that trailer was, we didn’t get a real feel for how the most important part –the gameplay– was going to turn out. Today, we’re getting our first glimpse at Sleeping Dogs’ story and characters in what looks like it’s going to be a fun ride.

We’ll be controlling Wei Shen, our undercover cop protagonist who is playing as a deported man who has come back home to Hong Kong. His mission is to take down a hostile and local triad organization known as Sun Oh Yee and their crime lord known as the Dragonhead.

Zhen has to gain the trust of the organization by completing a few bad deeds for them. Naturally, that goes against his nature as a cop and that moral struggle appears to play a heavy roll in the game.

Brutal combat, fast vehicles, intense shoot-outs and a lively dim lit city of Hong Kong are all going to be a common sight for Sleeping Dogs and we can’t wait to get our hands on it.

Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think in the comments.
