When worlds collide: Asphalt 8 pays homage to the upcoming Modern Combat 5

In two days' time
, Gameloft will release its new action-packed first-person shooter, Modern Combat 5: Blackout. The developer already released the official trailer of the spectacularly-looking game, but it seems that it will try to promote the upcoming shooter (almost) in any way possible. Gameloft's latest move in this direction aims at wooing Asphalt 8: Airborne fans into giving Modern Combat 5 a try once the latter gets released.

The game developer has endowed Asphalt 8: Airborne with a special race track, which takes place in a Modern Combat 5 version of Venice. If you are truly wondering how an FPS game and an arcade racer mix together, Gameloft's got the right answer in two. The race track in question comes with a hefty amount of fiery explosions, choppers flying around, and a surplus of buildings that are being disintegrated down to tiny debris. All in all, it sounds like a Michael Bay movie right at your finger tips.

The event in question is a limited-time one, which means that it will end once Modern Combat 5: Blackout hits the virtual shelves at Apple's App Store and Google Play. If you are rather excited for Gameloft's upcoming shooter and want to soothe your impatience, then why don't go ahead and check out the dedicated event before it expires?

NES games are less pixelated than this.

Its always the trailer that looks good. In game graphics sucks.

But these are in game graphics in the trailer. And they look horrible.

Yeah, correctly! Plus, Asphalt 8 is so darn hard. Ive never seen a racing game focused so well on coin(?) grinding. If there would be a statistics inside the game, I lose more than winning.

Yep. Graphics not good. Best racing game for mobile atm IMO is Real Racing 3.

Did you put youtube in HD quality? Still not the best looking racer on mobile platform but it's less pixelated

too bad, because I still don't want to update because of that stupid fuel system and required internet connection...
