'True Crime: Hong Kong' (ALL) Revived, Picked Up By Square Enix

by Rainier on Aug. 1, 2011 @ 1:53 p.m. PDT

Sleeping Dogs follows the story of detective Wei Shen as he infiltrates one of Hong Kong's notorious Triad crime syndicates. As a newly hired thug within the Triad organization, Wei must do whatever it takes to stay undetected and survive, balancing his moral duty as a cop with the objectives of the assignment.

After being dropped by Activision a few month ago, Square Enix has revealed that it has picked up the title (not the license) from United Front Games, whom are still developing the game in cooperation with Square Enix London Studios. No details on release date, or whether it will be released on the original three platform, were revealed.

As a newly hired thug within the Triad organization, Wei must do whatever it takes to stay undetected and survive, balancing his moral duty as a cop with the objectives of the assignment.  In order to ascend the ranks of the underworld gamers will engage in visceral, fast-paced martial arts combat and explosive gunfights, along with high-octane driving sequences and acrobatic free-running chases as they go deeper and deeper undercover.

Set in Hong Kong, True Crime takes gamers through diverse neighborhoods, ranging from the high class Central HK to the bustling fish markets of Aberdeen and beyond in a wide variety of story missions and sandbox activities.  The game also introduces handfuls of intriguing characters for gamers to interact with as they navigate through a truly unique and dangerous city
