Sleeping Dogs Gunplay Trailer Shows Off How Cover And Bullet-Time Works

Sleeping Dogs has an open world, car chases, melee combat and lots of talking, but it also has a load of shooting. United Front Games have given the game a cover system, which is meant more for making your way towards enemies, rather than for playing defensively. When you break out of cover, the game briefly goes into bullet-time for a few seconds. Here’s a gunplay video that shows it off:

 

 

Sleeping Dogs will be released in North America on August 14th and in Europe on August 17th.

    “United Front Games have given the game a cover system….”

    Frankly speaking, nowadays, it’s more noteworthy when a shooter DOESN’T have a cover system.

      True, but I believe the following part of that sentence was what was meant to be noteworthy.

      “… which is meant more for making your way towards enemies, rather than for playing defensively.”

      Most shooters with cover don’t do anything with the cover. You just hide. Sleeping Dogs actually lets you use cover to go on the offense, that was meant to be noteworthy.

    So is the slow motion only when you jump over cover? I would have wanted a Vanquish style side roll from cover slow motion XD, but all in all the game is preordered =p. Been hyped for this game for a long time =D
