Gameloft is preparing an Android release of its new game Asphalt 9: Legends. The most recent part of the racing series will contain numerous flashy graphics, licensed cars and even more in-app items eligible for purchase. The additional features will be available to buy starting from $0.99 up to $99.99. The publisher hopes that the new release will keep its predecessors’ place as one of the most popular racing titles available on mobile devices.
Improvement of the graphics
According to Gameloft, the fans of the Asphalt series will see a great improvement of the graphics, with the help of high dynamic range (HDR) graphics and far more realistic physics. Or maybe to be more precise, the physics engine of the game will be more powerful. Still, the game will keep some of the features from the older versions of Asphalt, such as stunt mechanics, which will be supplemented by a new Touchdrive control system.
Multiplayer modes and other social features
The new Asphalt game will allow real time racing competition against up to eight opponents, thanks to its online multiplayer modes. In addition to that, some new social features will be implemented, such as clubs or a clan system, which will allow users to be completely immersed in the game.
Demo version and release date
The game made its debut for Android in the middle of May, when it was released as a soft launch in the Philippines. The next step, which is the global release, is expected in the near future. Gameloft doesn’t provide us with the exact release date of the game, at least for now. Asphalt 9: Legends will be presented at E3 in the form of a demo version. In order to see if the new installment will find its place in the top tier of the racing games, we will have to wait a little bit longer.
