Gameloft has published a stunning new Asphalt 8: Airborne trailer today, ahead of tomorrow’s launch on iOS. As its name suggests, the latest Asphalt game is all about defying gravity and performing insane jumps that’ll give you the edge in each race — and there’s plenty of that to enjoy in the new clip.

Asphalt 8 is already available to download in you live in New Zealand, or have a New Zealand App Store account — but it’ll be out in the U.S. and the rest of the world tomorrow, August 22. It’s expected to be priced at just $0.99, but like other Gameloft titles, you can expect there to be plenty of in-app purchases for additional content.

Asphalt 8 will feature 47 high-performance cars, many of which are licensed, like the Lamborghini Veneno, Bugatti Veyron, Ferrari FXX, and Pagani Zonda R. There are nine different settings to enjoy, with tracks in Venice, Iceland, the Nevada desert, and other exciting locations; plus 8 seasons and over 180 events in career mode.

For those who like to play with or against friends, there’s also a multiplayer mode with asynchronous racing, leaderboards and achievements, and real-time action for up to 8 players.
