Welcome to Hong Kong, a vibrant neon city teeming with life, whose exotic locations and busy streets hide one of the most powerful and dangerous criminal organizations in the world: the Triads. In this open-world game, you play the role of Wei Shen, an undercover cop trying to take down the Triads from the inside. You'll have to prove yourself worthy as you fight your way up the organization, taking part in brutal criminal activities without blowing your cover. Torn between your loyalty to the badge and the code of the triads, you will risk everything as the lines between truth and honor become permanently blurred. Written by
Did You Know?
Originally intended to be the third game in the Activision-produced "True Crime" series (after True Crime: Streets of LA
(2003) and True Crime: New York City
(2005)), but was cancelled after Activision elected not to back the game in a market dominated by other free-roaming games made by other companies, such as Grand Theft Auto IV
(2008) and Saints Row: The Third
(2011). It had different art direction, level design, character models, slightly different storyline, different cutscenes, clothing, icons, brand, places names, soundtrack, some of the voice over actors were removed, some removed and/or changed places in the city, different weapons, combat animations and more. Eventually picked up by Square Enix, development was left in the hands of both them and United Front and the game was retitled "Sleeping Dogs". See more
Inspector Jane Teng
Wei Shen, I'm Inspector Teng. You have quite a rap sheet here. Multiple arrests in San Francisco, alleged ties to organized crime. And now you're here, enforcing for the Sun On Yee. You know, you don't have to throw you're life away like this.
Your concern's really moving. You know, I appreciate that. I'm suddenly realizing I should have never dropped out of art school. I could have made it, I could have been a real somebody. Thank you for showing me the light, officer.
