Following on from yesterdays unveiling of the games box art, Square Enix have today released a new trailer that revels some details about the upcoming open world action game’s story. Developed by United Front Games, the game sees you take on the role of undercover cop Wei Shen on the streets of Hong Kong as he aims to take down some of the most fearsome criminal organisations from the inside.
“To bring down the Sun On Yee you have to take down the people who support them… the Red Poles, the lieutenants, the Dragon Head. On old friend from your childhood is looking for muscle. A low-ranking lieutenant he may be, but if he trusts you, you are in. The civil war brewing can be used to your advantage; show them you are fearless and you will quickly rise through the ranks and take down the brotherhood from the inside.”
The trailer itself portrays a vibrant and lively looking Hong Kong, neon lights sparkle, the streets look busy and full of life – it would seem that the developers are really pushing for this game to be as immersive, or indeed as massive, as another open world game I could mention.. I won’t mention it, because that’s what your all expecting. Let’s just call this other game bland shmeft rambo and move on, ok?
Check out the trailer below, and stay tuned to GodisaGeek for more on Sleeping Dogs over the coming months, this is certainly one to watch.
