Next Asphalt title going off-road, coming soon to iOS, Android, and Windows 10 Mobile

Gameloft's Asphalt has long been one of our favorite mobile game series. Stunning graphics, intuitive controls, and a ton of racing fun, these are the elements which have contributed to the success of the eight Asphalt mobile games. In an interesting turn of events, however, it looks like the developers are now planning to launch an Asphalt game that, oddly, will go against the title of the series. According to Gameloft, the next Asphalt game will be centered on off-road racing.

In Asphalt: Extreme, players will get to drive 35 off-road cars ranging from SUVs to buggies and rally racers. And we meant it when we said that players will not get to touch any asphalt, as the races will all take place in various off-road races around the Gobi desert, Thailand, Egypt, or Svalbard.

For a feel of what Asphalt: Extreme will play like, here are a few video teasers:

Like the previous installments in the Asphalt series, Asphalt: Extreme won't cost the proverbial arm and leg to download, although there will most likely be a ton of in-app purchases to spend your hard-earned cash on. Asphalt: Extreme will land on iOS, Android, and Windows at an undisclosed date in the near future.

If you’re keen to learn more about the game, head on over to the source link below, which is where you’ll also be able to pre-register to buy Asphalt: Extreme from.

I might try if it's an off road race.

Make it more unoptimized than already badly running asphalt 8. And don't forget the 30 fps lock, because we all need cinematic experience.

Asphalt 8 runs amazing and at high settings. At least on my lumia 950xl and on my PC. Though my PC is pretty powerful hehe.

I was talking about the android port, i.e. the OpenGL version of asphalt 8. Windows version runs on DirectX and iOS version runs on metal and they both are really good ports.

Asphalt 8 runs fantastic on my 5s and 6s. (Loads longer in 5s though).

Asphalt 8, a game that feels laggy and unplayable even with a solid 60fps. That's a accomplishment only achievable by a truly s**t developer, take a bow Gameloft.

It's Gameloft, so it will look good but gameplay will be crap as always. These guys get way too much attention, far more than they deserve.
