Asphalt 8: Airborne release date revealed, priced at $0.99
August 22 – that's the date which you have to mark in your calendars if you're excited about the upcoming Asphalt 8: Airborne. That is when the 8th installment of the popular racing video game franchise will be launched, as the guys at Gameloft confirmed via Twitter. The game will be released on Android and iOS, priced at $0.99. 

However, you may get the game for free, as long as fortune is on your side. Gameloft is giving away 21 copies of Asphalt 8: Airborne (for iOS or Android) in their online sweepstakes, which you can enter in via the company's blog. And if you're extremely lucky, you may even get to play the game before anyone else. One of the free copies will be awarded several days before launch in the form of an iOS promo code. 

Gameloft's Asphalt 8: Airborne builds up on what the previous releases in the series are known for – beautiful graphics, real cars, and fast-paced gameplay. The newest installment will introduce a reworked physics engine and gameplay elements allowing the player to pull off jumps and stunts. Watch the video below to get a better idea of what's coming.
