We knew United Front Games had brought UFC champion George St-Pierre in to help with the development of Sleeping Dogs, but we didn’t know just how involved the martial artist was. In a new behind the scenes video courtesy of IGN, St-Pierre is shown going through animations with key development staff, tweaking small details and even play-fighting with them to brainstorm ideas. It’s pretty neat and partially explains why the combat in Sleeping Dogs feels so awesome. The open-world action epic hits in August for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
