Asphalt 9: Legends puts the player in the driver's seat as they perform incredible stunts (huge nitro boosts, complete 360°, barrel rolls, etc.) while racing through stunning locations.

Asphalt 9: Legends brings back the fun of arcade racing games that made it successful and takes it to the next level, blurring the line between mobile and console graphics and integrating a strong multiplayer and social feature set.

Asphalt 9: Legends brings a graphic quality to mobile devices only ever seen on consoles before. The powerful new engine developed by Gameloft delivers high dynamic range (HDR) graphics and physically based rendering (PBR), giving every speck of light enough detail to be reflected as it would in real life. That attention to detail combined with iconic locations and the world’s most prestigious cars makes it an amazingly immersive experience.

Asphalt’s acclaimed gameplay is expanded in Asphalt 9: Legends with Touchdrive, a fresh approach to driving controls that adds a layer of strategic decision to the sheer fun of the ride.

Whether using Touchdrive or classic controls, intense action transports players into their very own blockbuster experience as they speed through tracks, with the dynamic environment getting in on the action.

Gameloft is thrilled to announce that the Asphalt franchise has reached the milestone of one billion downloads across all platforms.

Entering into its 16th Anniversary, the Asphalt franchise launched in 2005 with Asphalt Urban GT, originally made available on Java-based feature phones, the N-Gage, and Nintendo DS, with the most recent addition being the latest smash hit Asphalt 9: Legends, available on the App Store, Google Play, Microsoft Store, Nintendo Switch, and macOS.

In addition, Gameloft is thrilled to announce that Asphalt 9: Legends will soon be launching, free-to-play, on Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One with cross-play and cross-save support for players on Windows 10.

More details to be announced soon.

Additionally, Asphalt 8: Airborne and Asphalt 9: Legends will release dedicated time-limited events, starting April 26th, celebrating this impressive milestone where players would be able to stack-up amazing rewards and prizes!

"For over 20 years, Gameloft has been on the forefront of what players could experience on mobile devices, and just over 15 years ago we kicked off a franchise that has remained a core series to us, Asphalt," said Thomas Aurick, VP of Creation at Gameloft. "In the years since, we transformed Asphalt into the most readily-accessible racing franchise in the world. This is only just the beginning for Asphalt, and with the impending launch of Asphalt 9: Legends on the Xbox platform, we further commit to bring anyone, on whatever gaming platform a racing experience beyond imagination. This is the Gameloft of today."

Asphalt 9: Legends also brings fierce competition to the arcade racing genre with online multiplayer modes featuring real time racing with up to 8 other players. The Asphalt community will discover how the immersion is pushed even further with fully integrated social features including a clan system and clubs that allow for worldwide cooperation. The connected features of Asphalt 9: Legends provide players with an exciting social experience, and with more to come throughout 2018, there are many multiplayer surprises in store for players all over the world.
