Game Pics: “Sleeping Dogs” Spin-Off “Triad”

Released back in 2012, Square Enix’s Hong Kong-set, open world video game “Sleeping Dogs” was not a major hit right out of the gate as it didn’t have the kind of marketing push that a “Call of Duty” or “Halo” or “Assassin’s Creed” can afford.

What it did have in its corner though was strong critical reviews and great word of mouth, so much so that over 1.5 million copies of the game were sold within a year. Instead of yet another generic American city, the player was able to explore a more exotic contemporary Hong Kong as an undercover cop infiltrating the infamous Sun On Yee criminal organisation.

Now some new photos are out from “Triad Wars,” a spin-off which has you the player trying to rise to power as a criminal kingpin of the Triad underworld. This version treads a very different path as instead of a campaign-based action game, this one is a free-to-play massive multiplayer online title and NOT a sequel as such. It is, however, set in the same universe.
