During E3 this year, Gameloft announced the latest game in the Asphalt series of racers. Surprisingly, the next Asphalt won't be Asphalt 9. Instead, the series is spinning off in a new direction with Asphalt Overdrive. Instead of a serious arcade-style racer, the new Asphalt will be an endless racer – sort of like Gameloft's recently released Spider-Man Unlimited or Sega's Crazy Taxi City Rush.
Players who are wondering how well Asphalt works as an endless racer plays won't have to wait long to find out. Today Gameloft announced that Asphalt: Overdrive will be coming to Android, iOS, Windows Phone, and Windows 8 this Thursday, September 25! The publisher also released a new trailer to celebrate the news. Keep reading for the trailer.
The Windows Phone version will run on devices with 512 MB of RAM, so nobody has to miss out on the endless racing. The Windows 8 version will exclusively feature landscape support, since Windows 8 PCs tend to be locked to that orientation.
Asphalt Overdrive will be free with in-app purchases when it arrives on Android, iOS, Windows Phone, and Windows 8 this Thursday.
