Square Enix Releases New Screenshots For Sleeping Dogs

on February 26, 2012 12:30 PM

Square Enix, overseeing a project run by Vancouver-based United Front Games, has been dropping information on the new Hong Kong crime action-drama, Sleeping Dogs. A few weeks ago we brought you the game’s live action announcement trailer, which teased us with a few scant story details and some great martial arts choreography.

This time around, we’ve got some images showcasing the in-game graphics. The design team captures the neon-gritty spirit of Hong Kong brilliantly, and the character designs, though less flamboyant than usual, are as stellar as you’d expect coming from a project presented by Square-Enix. Check out the image gallery after the break to see for yourself.

Sleeping Dogs has an August release date, which leaves ample time for more little info drops like today’s. Thus far we have the story details mentioned in the linked trailer article, and we know the gameplay utilizes brutal melee combat with environment-specific takedowns, and also includes substantial shooting and driving elements.

Keep an eye on this one, as gameplay videos and new details are sure to emerge soon.

Sto Austin is the man. Period. When not saving the world from the next generation of Metal Gears or throwing hadoukens at his detractors, chances are he's writing about someone else doing something similarly epic, possibly whilst smoking a cigar. He enjoys games with a strong emphasis on story, which typically fall into the RPG, Action/Adventure, or Horror genres, though he also has a soft spot for fighting games and has been known, when feeling saucy, to shred on some Guitar Hero or Rock Band. He currently divides his time between Florida and Maine, tromping up and down the East coast according to the whims of fate and fortune.
