If you live your life a quarter mile at a time you probably love racing games… and Vin Diesel. If you’ve got oil running through your veins today is your lucky day as Gameloft has unleashed the beast on Google Play with Asphalt 8: Airborne.
Asphalt 8: Airborne is the latest game in the popular Asphalt franchise, and as the title implies, things are a little different this go round. For starters, Gamelofts using a new engine to power the game which basically means everything is going to look better, and the cars should be more responsive and realistic. Well, responsive anyway as going “Airborne” in your car isn’t the most realistic thing unless you’re a horrible driver or a stuntman.By the numbers, Asphalt 8: Airborne offers up 47 high-end cars, 9 exotic locales to race through, 8 seasons, 180 events, and simultaneous multiplayer for up to 8 people as well as ghost challenges. There also seem to be a few new game modes to boot with Infected and Drift Gate mode. Needless to say, there seems to be plenty to do in the world of Asphalt 8, so fans of the franchise should be pleased.
The Asphalt series has always been popular on Android, and Asphalt 8: Airborne looks to continue the trend. The whole “airborne” aspect of the game may seem a little ridiculous to some, but it looks like good fun if you dig these types of games. If you’re ready to give it a run, you can pick up Gameloft’s Asphalt 8: Airborne for $0.99 on Google Play.
