The story behind Sleeping Dogs is an interesting one. This action/driving game originally got its start as a True Crime title, but has since shifted into an original third-person action/adventure that’s standing out as a gem in Square Enix’s game line-up. And now it’s coming our way with an official release date.
Square announced today that the game will hit stores on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on August 14, just in time to wrap up the summer. It’ll feature a number of great gameplay segments as you guide an undercover cop into a battle with the mob, where he hopes to tear it apart from the inside out.
In addition, Square has announced pre-order details through retailers, including Best Buy, Amazon and Gamestop. They are as follows…
