It feels like ages since Gameloft released Asphalt 8, the latest main entry in the massive racing franchise. That’s because it was – it was five years ago, in fact. Oh, and no, Street Storm didn’t do anything to ease the long wait.
Fear not though, because the franchise is coming back very soon. The next entry is Asphalt 9: Legends, and it’s out now in soft launch on iOS. Hopefully, we’ll see that soft launch extend to Android soon enough.
Asphalt 9: Legends
With a new entry comes new features, and this one doesn’t disappoint. Not only does it look insanely good, but it also has a completely overhauled control scheme.
Gameloft has entitled it “Touch Drive”, and claims that it allows you to focus on the racing rather than the steering. That actually doesn’t sound too great for us, because we actually like to play games. Should keep the casual racers happy.
Other than that there are about 50 licensed cars available and a full on career mode. That’s all we really know right now, but you can learn more by watching the official preview trailer above. You can also check out the App Store page if you live in the Philippines.
