Sleeping Dogs combat gameplay trailer brings the pain

Bone-crunching combos, vicious counters and environmental takedowns

Square Enix has sent over a new Sleeping Dogs trailer focusing on combat gameplay.


Set in Hong Kong, the game sees players assume the role of undercover cop Wei Shen, who's tasked with taking down a fearsome criminal organisation from the inside.

To do so he'll need to make use of an extensive array of upgradable martial arts moves. Check out the movie for a taster of some bone-crunching combos, vicious counters and a cinematic set of environmental takedowns making use of plenty of real-world items.
