United Front Games and Activision are giving the gamers who asked for it a third taste of True Crime, officially unveiling the game at this weekend's Spike TV VGAs, further detailing the Hong Kong crime drama today.

According to official word, the rebooted True Crime will "look, feel and play like a true Hong Kong action flick," following the exploits of undercover cop Wei Shen as he attempts to take down the Chinese crime syndicate, the Triad.

The True Crime elevator pitch is as follows: "As a newly hired thug within the Triad organization, Wei must do whatever it takes to stay undetected and survive, balancing his moral duty as a cop with the objectives of the assignment. In order to ascend the ranks of the underworld gamers will engage in visceral, fast-paced martial arts combat and explosive gunfights, along with high-octane driving sequences and acrobatic free-running chases as they go deeper and deeper undercover."


To sum up: visceral, high-octane, explosive, moral choices, Hong Kong.

True Crime is penciled in for a fall 2010 release on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC, specifically "the Games for Windows."

Yes, because all criminals in Hong Kong fight police with stylized, martial arts action. i wonder if this is as much stereotyping by proxy, aping martial arts movies as opposed to actually stereotyping asians, of course avoiding being realistic either way. Do Asian people consider stuff like this borderline racist at all? That we automatically assume your criminals have ultra leet kung fu skills and stuff..

also.. what gamers were waiting for this announcement? the last two true crimes were awful.
