Sleeping Dogs: Story trailer keeps it hard-boiled

Since liberating True Crime: Hong Kong from the ignominy of Activision's blacklist, Square Enix has been working with developer United Front Games to rebrand the game. Having already released the live-action reveal trailer for Sleeping Dogs – a standalone crime saga built from TC:HK's DNA – the publisher's now rolled plenty of in-game footage into a new story trailer for your appraisal.

We're glad to see Sleeping Dogs' infatuation with Hong Kong cinema extending to the storyline: while it's tempting to wonder how different the game might have looked as a True Crime reboot, Square Enix's new direction looks like a whole new, ambitious take on the genre. Our last preview gave us plenty to look forward to: you can anticipate hearing more about the game between now and its August release date.
