Being an open-world game set in a modern city, it would be criminal for Sleeping Dogs to not feature a racing component of some kind. Thankfully that’s not the case, as this brand new trailer explosively illustrates.

Indeed, Sleeping Dogs will feature over 65 vehicles to aid you in your pursuit to conquer Hong Kong’s highways:

Participate in illegal street races where money, girls and status are the high-stakes rewards, taking on your challengers with expert driving and precision-placed ramming, sending any and all rivals into a well-timed spin.

The positive news is that with ModNation Racers developer United Front Games at the helm, there’s a good chance that Sleeping Dogs’ vehicles won’t control like ice-cream trucks on ice (as has been the case in open world games before).

We’re getting more excited for Square Enix’s answer to Grand Theft Auto by the day. Let’s hope the full game delivers.
