Asphalt 8 (teaser)

French games maker Gameloft is on a roll lately. Hot on the heels of teasing its upcoming Modern Combat 5 for iOS and Android and releasing Gangstar Vegas on the App Store, just a few hours ago it posted the first Asphalt 8: Airborne teaser.

Yup, the next installment in the Asphalt franchise promises to up the ante with high-octane action.

This usually entails smashing vehicles into each other and taking control of crazy fast racing cars that defy gravity and fly all over the place, almost as if someone’s watched a tad too many Fast and Furious movies. We’re not complaining, though. Asphalt 8: Airborne looks business and we can’t wait to get our hands on it. Your action-packed trailer is right after the break…

Gameloft promises both synchronous and asynchronous multiplayer, in addition to several game modes such as Gate Drift, Infected and Takedown, the latter making a return from Asphalt 7.

Gate Drift will challenge you to drift your way through multiple gates. The more you get through, the more points you get. If the following screenies are anything to go by, we’re in for some non-stop adrenaline action.

Infected mode has one player starting as “infected.” The goal is to hit another car within 20 seconds in order to pass the infection along and regain health.

You can also expect eight brand new maps and an assortment of high-end vehicles from the usual suspects like Lamborghini, Bugatti, Zonda, Ferrari, Mercedes and many more.

Asphalt 8 is coming soon to iOS and Android.

Oh, and it’s going to cost only 99 cents.

Are you looking forward to playing this game or is that too much airborne action for you?

      Gameloft has nothing to do with EA.

      • seyss

      • s0me

        No but Asphalt 7 is full of IAP, so expect the same with this one.

    Gangstar las vigas sucks its soo bad

    • Tony Klapatch

      Whats so bad about it? I haven’t bought it yet and I’m wondering whats wrong. I’ve been using Gangster Rio for the past week because I’m not sure if I should drop $7 on the new one.

      • Zakarea Durgam

        No dont buy it see a video on youtube for the game and then see its sucks go and see

      • Tardroid

    • Ishaan Malhotra

  • Zakarea Durgam

    Why they dont make gta iv on ios that will be great even if they make it 20 $

    • milksop held

      Nahh GTA San Andreas would be better

    • pawfyd

      Because no iOS device would be able to handle GTA IV. Simple as that. San Andreas is a possibility. 🙂

  • Sachin

    Graphics looks even more good. 😀
    Can’t wait for it now.

  • Usama Ahmad

    im guessing no ipad 1 support :/

  • Ilya Kazakov

    i had a chance to play Asphalt 8, some kind of pre-release version, and you know guys, it is way better than previous Asphalts. New physics, new graphics, same mad gameplay.

  • Dan

    Will probably be chock full of IAP purchases. I’ll buy the app then use hack for free purchases I guess

  • RazeDemon

    I believe this game will be free for first 5 days because as far as i see Gameloft’s every release is free for the first week. Am i right?
