Sleeping Dogs wants you to investigate the seedy Hong Kong underbelly

Next week on Tuesday, you'll get to step into the shoes of Wei Shen and into the open world setting of Hong Kong where you'll be going undercover and playing for both sides of the law.

You'll be fighting, racing, investigating and shooting your way through various missions. This is an open world game after all so expect a lot of side missions that will no doubt tack on a lot of extra hours.

If you'll be picking up Sleeping Dogs on the PC, you'll be treated to a lot of extras as far as graphics go. Higher resolution will give an incredible sense of scale and detail, in game shadows will receive a significant upgrade and will also feature performance enhancements for both dual and quad core PC setups. Looks like if you want the best looking version of Sleeping Dogs, you should be getting it on Steam. Not to mention you get some sweet Team Fortress 2 hats if you pre-order.

Look for Sleeping Dogs on August 14th for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.

Developed by United Front Games in collaboration with Square Enix London Studios, SleepingDogs 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 organizations from the inside. Offering players an island packed with action, every street corner, market stall, harbor 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 Dogsempowers 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.
