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 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. Taking the role of undercover cop Wei Shen, players are tasked with taking down one of the world’s most fearsome criminal organisations from the inside. Offering players an island packed with action, every street corner, market stall, harbour 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.

Look out for Sleeping Dogs from the 16th of August, 2012 for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Windows PC.
