The latest Sleeping Dogs Behind the Scenes trailer follows current UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre (GSP) in a visit to developer United Front Games. A phenomenal mixed martial artist and an expert in his field, GSP’s input to the game has been invaluable. Working closely with the combat team on Sleeping Dogs’ martial arts moves, the game’s kicks, punches and combos have been broken down and analysed to ensure each is as realistic and authentic as can be. “Having a guy who embodies what MMA is today come in and help us tweak our fighting,” commented Senior Producer Jeff O’Connell, “absolutely helped us take the game to another level.”

Developed by United Front Games in collaboration with Square Enix London Studios, Sleeping Dogs is a gritty and visceral open world cop drama set in the vibrant city of Hong Kong. Taking the role of undercover cop Wei Shen, players are tasked with taking down one of the world’s most fearsome criminal organisations from the inside. Offering players an island packed with action, every street corner, market stall, harbour dock or city skyscraper can become an opportunity for intense shoot-outs, adrenaline-fuelled street races and intense, brutal martial arts combat. Featuring one of the most intuitive and imaginative combat systems, Sleeping Dogs empowers players to perform an extensive set of martial arts moves, singlehandedly taking on numerous opponents. Players perform bone-crunching kicks and combos, vicious counters and a cinematic set of environmental takedowns making use of countless real-world items from circular saws to phone booths, incinerators to refrigerator doors.
Sleeping Dogs will be available in ANZ from the 16th August 2012 for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and Windows PCs.
