Square Enix and United Front Games today release a brand new Launch Trailer for SLEEPING DOGS: DEFINITIVE EDITION now available, releasing on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

Sleeping Dogs is a 2012 open world action-adventure video game developed by United Front Games and Square Enix London. It was published by Square Enix and Bandai Namco Games for Microsoft Windows and the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 consoles. Set in contemporary Hong Kong, the single-player story follows Wei Shen, an undercover Chinese-American police officer on assignment to infiltrate the Sun On Yee Triad organisation.

Gameplay centres on Shen's fighting, shooting and parkour abilities, and on gadgets that can be used for combat and exploration. Players must complete missions to unlock content and continue the story, but they may instead wander the game's open world and engage in both legal and criminal activities.

The latter may incite a police response, the intensity of which is controlled by a "heat" system. Actions such as fighting, driving and racing grant Shen statistical rewards and earn the player achievements.

Upon its release in 2012, the game received positive reviews for its combat, voice acting, experience system and depiction of the city; but its graphics, camera, and animations were criticised. Within one year, the game had sold over 1.5 million copies.

New outfits, missions and add-ons, as well as three expansion packs, were released as downloadable content in the six months following the game's debut. The remastered version, subtitled Definitive Edition is now available.

A sequel, Triad Wars, is in development and is set to be released in early 2015.
