To imbue its game with the highest level of combat authenticity as possible, Sleeping Dogs developer United Front has employed the help of champion mixed martial arts fighter, George St-Pierre, to provide his expert fighting knowledge to the studio.
George St-Pierre’s input is going directly into fine-tuning the combat system of Sleeping Dogs to empower players “to take on the toughest [Hong Kong] has to throw at them.”
The latest trailer for Sleeping Dogs showcases George St-Pierre in action and his real-world actions being translated into the game:
