Asphalt 8: Airborne gets a release date and new gameplay screenshots

Asphalt 8 - Airborne Online Multiplayer gameplay screenshot Android iOS WP8 by Gameloft 2013Gameloft just published new gameplay screenshots from their upcoming arcade racing mobile game Asphalt 8: Airborne, in addition to finally revealing the game’s official release date – August 8. Yes, both Android and iOS versions of the game should be launching that day. We say “should” because a lot of other Gameloft mobile games like Dungeon Hunter 4 and Gangstar Vegas were also supposed to have a simultaneous Android-iOS release, but complications got the better of them.

Anyway, the new gameplay screenshots look gorgeous and we can’t wait to see Asphalt 8: Airborne in action. In case you’ve forgotten, the game will be priced at $0.99 with additional in-game purchases like those for cash bundles of various sizes, special vehicles, and of course – vinyls. As for the Windows Phone 8 port of Asphalt 8: Airborne, it’ll be hitting the Windows Phone Marketplace in either late winter or early spring. We’ll definitely keep the WP gamers updated on that front, and as for the rest of you, you can count on us to notify you of the game’s release two weeks from now.
