By James Richardson on 28 Feb 2013 09:27 am EST

Over in the CrackBerry forums it's been highlighted that Asphalt 7: Heat is currently free to download from BlackBerry World in a selection of countries. This may well just be a nice promotion by BlackBerry as the Z10 has only recently hit retail stores in the below locations.

Asphalt 7: Heat is currently free in:

  • Australia
  • Indonesia
  • India
  • Mexico
  • Malaysia
  • Singapore
  • Thailand

Asphalt 7: Heat is a big file at over 1GB in size so make sure you have space on your Z10 and be prepared for a lengthy download.

Have you managed to grab it for free? Let us know in the comments.

Thanks for the tip off cjterminator

Ready - Asphalt 7: Heat free in certain countries - grab it while it's hot


Yeah no Canada, or Playbook for that matter. Hope we get some news soon on when our Playbooks are getting bb10.
I’d rather be a Black Sheep than an iSheep any day.

Not sure what link you are using but every time I click on it, it comes up as 'Displaying Info for United Kingdom' - Free Download

@James: N.O.V.A. 3 as well. You might want to just ads that to this article vs starting a new one just for that.

Recalled an idea someone wrote a while ago. Log in to BlackBerry World. Change your default country to one of the above, and you should be able for get it.

*edit... I'm unable to verify it atm. Someone should try it though.

From what I can tell, Blackberry World determines one's country from the device associated with the blackberry account. There doesn't seem to be any way to change one's country.

You need to have an IP address from one of those countries. If you are able to change it, then you can download the game.
Since i don't have a Z10 yet, I'm not sure if that works. It used to work on the PlayBook though.

That's definitely something that has changed. I was able to change it last year when my Torch was still active. I suppose it's better for BlackBerry's security to lock down a loophole.

this works on the playbook by changing your proxy settings to a certain country. ( ip/port) not sure if it works on the z10. getting mine tomorrow or tuesday...

Why is it 5$ in BB Store and 1$ on iOS store. This probably just an android port. Don't get me wrong I am happy we are getting games on BB10, I am hoping we get more apps. I'm ok with one angry birds and Chimpact.

WOW! So users in Canada are not important?
Therefore I will never buy this app....
Stuff like this should not be allowed by BlackBerry!

Will have to check if available on my PlayBook as unfortunately the z10 is not released in Australia as yet.

If I am not mistaken, this was released at a slightly lower price - or Nova was (in the UK).
Well, you buy them once and you can always re-download.

However, as nice as the game is, I have a lot of issues with it... load times are slow but that's fine while not great for a paid for product. The fact that is likes crashing or hanging on a regular basis however is an insult to customers.

I dont get why the game is a massive whooping 1gig in size? how good are those graphics to warrant such a big size?? Its bigger in size than need for speed hot pursuit the pc version!! When did i blink for games to get so big in size?

Well I am just a lucky bastard being on a vacation in Bali, Indonesia. Downloading now. Asphalt and NOVA which is for GBP 5 in England.

Asphalt 7 came for free because this is the land where's Blackberry stand Tall. Occupied more 50% market shares of Asia. Now,If you're being a vacation in Indonesia, you can do that with TELKOM, Indosat, or AXIS. Just sit back and Enjoy !
