Shooting is Highlighted in this New Trailer for Sleeping Dogs

Square Enix has released a new trailer for Sleeping Dogs and this time, it’s not melee combat that’s being shown but the game’s shooting mechanics.

Watch as game protagonist Wei Shen unloads lead on his enemies. The trailer shows the game’s cover system, blind-firing and how it uses slow-motion to deliver a “hard boiled” experience.

If that wasn’t enough, players can also expect to engage in shootouts while riding vehicles. Think of this as every Hong Kong action movie you’ve seen and you’ll get an idea what Sleeping Dogs’ gunplay is all about.

United Front Games’ third-person action game will be out on August 17 for the PC, Xbox 360 and PS3.
