Sleeping Dogs E3 trailer

Torture, brutality and lots of blood...

So far, the theme of E3 2012 seems to be violence. Sleeping Dogs is no exception with the E3 trailer overflowing with torture and unflinching brutality.

No one expected Sleeping Dogs to be as peaceful as its title would suggest, but this trailer from E3 will definitely leave some people shocked, and maybe a little queasy.

Opening with a torture scene, the violence continues with barely a second of the two and a half minute trailer passing without the shedding of blood in some form or another.

It's best if you just see it for yourself.

Sleeping Dogs is expected to be out on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in August, but it has to get past Australia's classification system first.
