Asphalt 8 adds Dubai courses and new cars

Asphalt 8's latest update hit the Google Play Store today, packing new courses set in Dubai, five new cars, and a whole new season with 74 events. Other updates since launch have added courses in China, added new multiplayer events, and tons of new cars. If you haven't given Asphalt 8 a shot since it came out, it's worth giving another go.

Asphalt 8 is an over-the-top free-to-play racing game. Grab power ups, launch off ramps to make the unlikeliest of stunts, demolish competitors, and upgrade your ride in the process. Obviously if you want to pour money in there to accelerate your progress, you're more than welcome to, but the vast majority of the game plays great as is.

How many of you guys have put time into Asphalt 8: Airborne? Digging the new Dubai courses?

  • Just remove the extortion and it's a go n5
  • Stopped using it because I purchased it and then it became free
  • Oh no, you lost 99¢. Boo hoo OnePlus One
  • Great game! The graphics are top notch, the gameplay is smooth, and the audio is exceptional. The in-app purchases can get a little over the top but you don't have to buy anything if you don't want to. There is nothing in the game that can't be earned through playing the game (with the exception of a couple of cars that, at some point, will be available to earn in the game and not be purchased). I've spent less than $10 on the game and I have no issues whatsoever doing that. The only reason I spent the money that I did was to kickstart the gameplay in the beginning.
