To celebrate the update, developerGameloft is live-streaming the game for 24 hours.

Developer Criterion’s crash-centric racing franchise for consoles was basically the exact opposite of more staid simulation racers like Forza Motorsport or Gran Turismo. It was about speed and stunts. It featured absurd crashes that played out in almost fetishistic slow motion with metal and glass separating from cars and sailing through the air like doves in a John Woo movie. The physics were loose, the action was intense, and the event types included several things that were almost, but not quite, entirely unlike racing.
Why do I bring this up? Because Asphalt 8: Airborne is Burnout for your mobile device.
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.
