Sleeping Dogs: 'The best combat you'll get in an open-world game'

Witness the rebirth of True Crime...

Activision's lack of faith in United Front Games' True Crime: Hong Kong might work in Square Enix's favour in the long run.


Having played saviour by rescuing the cancelled title and rebranding it as Sleeping Dogs, the Hong Kong cinema inspired open-world action game is now being developed in conjunction with Square Enix's London studio, which has also worked on brilliant games such as Batman: Arkham Asylum and Just Cause 2.

While it's impossible to tell if it'll be a best in class experience at this stage, the brief taster of driving; close combat; and shooting we got to have recently is a clear indication that Sleeping Dogs holds plenty of potential.
