Sleeping Dogs is Coming Soon to OnLive

Sleeping Dogs will soon release on OnLive. The game will be priced at $49.99 in the US ($34.99 PlayPack) and £29.99 in the UK (£20.99 PlayPack). It's not yet up on OnLive's Belgium page, so it might release later there, the price will probably be €49.99 (€34.99 PlayPack). Since the game will release on other platforms on Tuesday, the chance is great that it will release on OnLive day-and-date with the other platforms.

Sleeping Dogs is an open world crime drama action game published by Square Enix and developed by United Front Games. The game had quite an interesting development history as it was originally in development as Black Lotus, later it was announced as True Crime: Hong Kong, the third installment and a reboot of the True Crime series. As a result of the game's high development budget, delays and Activision's greed, it was canceled by Activision. Then Square Enix picked up the publishing rights to the game, but renamed it to Sleeping Dogs as they didn't purchase the True Crime name rights. As Square Enix is a strong supporter of OnLive, they can feel lucky that the game had such a troubled development history and Square Enix picked it up. Would the game still be with Activision, it wouldn't be on OnLive, as Activision doesn't yet publish any games on OnLive.

In Sleeping Dogs you are welcomed to Hong Kong, a vibrant neon city teaming 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 out. 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 a criminal code of honor, you will risk everything as the lines between truth, loyalty and justice become permanently blurred.

Key Features:
  • A mature and gritty undercover cop drama in which you risk blowing your cover at any time.
  • Explosive action fueled by a seamless mix of deadly martial arts, intense gunfights and brutal takedowns.
  • Epic high-speed thrills: Burn up the streets or tear up the sea in a vast array of exotic cars, superbikes and speedboats.
  • Hong Kong is your playground: Enter illegal races, gamble on cock fights, or kick back with some karaoke. There are countless ways to entertain yourself in Hong Kong's diverse districts.

Metascore: 82
