Formerly known as True Crime: Hong Kong, Sleeping Dogs is an open-world action adventure that promises to show the darker side of Hong Kong.
Players will play as Wei, an undercover cop who attempts to integrate himself into the city's criminal network. As he works to infiltrate the triads and make his way to the top, the lines will be blurred between his unlawful and lawful duties.
Sleeping Dogs will release for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC during the second half of 2012.
