If racing around street circuits in Asphalt 8: Airborne is too sterile for you, then you need something extreme. Or to be more accurate, Asphalt Xtreme. Gameloft has taken the latest installment of its acclaimed racing series off-road for its most intense ride ever.
Abandoning the streets of the main series, Asphalt Xtreme lets you race in some of the most incredible locations on the planet. You travel the deserts of Egypt, the tundra of Norway, the Detroit steel mills, and more. Racing through these wild locations you’ll discover hazards, dramatic terrain, and huge jumps that ensure over-the-top action.
Experience all of these environments across more than 400 career events and 500 mastery challenges. That’s right, strap in, because this wild ride has wheels.
SEVEN CLASSES OF EXTREME MACHINE
Luckily, your garage is equipped with vehicles perfectly suited to these new courses and challenges. You have thirty five machines to choose from as you speed around Xtreme’s multitude of events.
These cars are divided into seven classes, each of which comes with its own advantages and disadvantages. If you like a nimble ride, then you’ll want a small car like the buggy which can quickly accelerate away from danger. But, for those of you who enjoy dominating the track, there are the larger vehicles. Watch your smaller opponents scatter as you smash through barriers to make new paths through courses. It may take you a while to hit top speed, but once you do everyone else had better make way.
Buggies and monster trucks? Don’t worry Asphalt fans, Xtreme has not forgotten its roots and still boasts an impressive showroom of licensed cars – all perfectly modeled. Jeep, Ford, Mercedes-Benz, Predator, Dodge, and Chevrolet, the biggest names in off-road racing are here. Get ready to collect and upgrade them all.
FULL SPEED AHEAD
Asphalt aficionados will notice one other big change in Asphalt Xtreme, a new nitro system. Instead of the old single bar nitro, your new off-road racers have three tanks to burn. You can use these individually, chained together for a longer boost, or unleash them all at once for a massive burst of speed. Just remember to keep doing spins, jumps, and drifts to charge your nitrous tank.
Asphalt Xtreme takes the series to the next level, keeping the familiar action but opening up new horizons and locations. You can download the game for free to day. And don’t forget, if you want all the latest racing news follow the game on Instagram, YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter.
