Gameloft has been pretty quiet as of late with their BlackBerry 10 releases but the silence has now been broken in a pretty awesome way. Asphalt 8: Airborne has finally arrived on BlackBerry 10. The game sells itself as ‘A game for fans of extreme arcade racing, with real dream cars and phenomenal graphics that will also please racing simulation enthusiasts.’ and that’s pretty true.

  • 47 high-performance cars - Top licensed manufacturers and models like Lamborghini Veneno, Bugatti Veyron, Ferrari FXX and Pagani Zonda R
  • Race in 9 different settings like Venice, French Guiana, Iceland, the Nevada Desert and other exciting locations! 
  • 8 seasons & 180 events in Career mode • Stunning visuals thanks to next-gen shaders, real time geometry reflection & other amazing effects for a new simulation of speed!
  • A detailed damage system like nothing you've seen before
  • Simultaneous multiplayer action for up to 8 real opponents! 
  • A heart-thumping mix of amazing licensed music for your game •Featuring real tracks from Bloc Party, Mutemath & The Crystal Method!

If you happen to have a MOGA controller, you'll be pleased to know Gameloft has added support for it in this release as well. Check out the trailer above to get a better feel for the game and the graphics and if it tickles your fancy, head on into BlackBerry World where you'll find the game available for a reasonable $.99. BlackBerry World lists support for the BlackBerry Z10 and the BlackBerry Z30.

If its as laggy as Asphalt 7 was, I don't want it.

I noticed some game lag on 10.1 but 10.2 is amazing fast. I doubt it's the processor, I'm guessing something in the code.
And I know plenty of people that have been waiting for this game.

Andrew, download Real Racing 3 and never look at any of these crappy arcade racing games again...

The graphics are a step up from Asphalt 7, but RR3 still tops this in my opinion...

Yup, I currently play Real Racing 3. Still stutters from time to time but it is way better than Asphalt 7.

And even better through the hdmi.

vettsting

Hdmi is good but I don't like how the screen unrealistically twists almost violently as you turn. Makes me nauseous on tracks like Suzuka, and my timing gets thrown off. At least when you turn the phone you can twist your head a bit and dampen the motion on screen.

Shifty88

You can turn that off, actually.

Saulius Usonis

And what matters even more - RR3 is available for Q10, unlike asphalt. And for those, who never played it on Q10, 1:1 screen is amazingly comfortable for racing game, despite narrow field of view.

On ios and Android it is free

AndrewThrashes

You got that right. Asphalt 7 is a great game but takes forever to load between races.

It's free at play store!!!

Sometimes devs release separate games for the Anbdroid system. Because piracy is so huge, so easy and so common, I found out that devs like the one of Badland released a purchase to unlock levels version of their game. On BB10 and etc OSes, it's pay once and get all.
I'm suspecting the case here. But this is just a hunch.

spiculated

When it was first release in play store and iTunes, it was 0.99 cents. Here is a link to when Game loft was charging for it: http://www.touchtapplay.com/new-for-ios-asphalt-8-airborne-smash-bandits...

I noticed some games being free on other platforms due to ads. Ads that normally their bb10 counterparts do not have. That could be the case here as well and it is something I prefer.

Asphalt 7 was already laggy so I don't think this will be any better. Will wait for reviews.

Still great to see big names coming to BB10

Not available for my Q10 apparently.

Looks pretty cool. But I prefer if it was on the PlayBook

Drewpoc

Thanks for continued support devs!...bb10 needs top apps/games on a consistent basis to attract different consumers

abdallahk

Why's it unavailable for the Q10?

I've already got Asphalt 7!

From the Q10 Until the Q30

DurdenLunarius

Finally MOGA support on BB10! Slowly but surely trickling in.

Anthony Roberts5

Well there is one game critical wave that supports it as well. Plus I have 10.2.1 and the Moga Pivot App....Dead Trigger 2....Prince of Persia work perfectly with the control :)!!!

DurdenLunarius

Well yes I know, and I too have 10.2.1 with the pivot app and GTA3, DT2 and Ravensword: Shadowlands running. But to date Gameloft has only updated Minion Rush to support controllers before this. They claim Modern Combat 4 works with a HID controller, but no instructions on exactly how...

Posted via CB10

Anthony Roberts5

Hold up....Modern Combat 4 can work with Moga?!?! I wonder how we can do this.......that one of the main games I wanted to play with my Moga Controller...:(....

DurdenLunarius

Same here bud. I've been trying to get the Android version that's compatible with the the Pivot app to work, but no dice so far.

Sent an email to them about what HID mode compatibility in their BlackBerry World description means...

Posted via CB10

vegetto_456

WOW i would love to get those games on my Z30 :) How do i get DT2 and GTA 3? Any help would be appreciated please and thank you :)

Anthony Roberts5

Very easy.....you need to download aptoide store you can get the apk directly from them aptoide.com.Once you get it installed.....search for the BB10 store on the main websit and add it to the apotide store list in the program (I scan the QR Code using smart tags and open it with apotide to add the store. Then you can search for the games and install them from the Aptoide App in the BB10 store you just added.

kennyiceberry

Good to have on the platform. I genuinely like driving games a lot.
The higher the quality, the better, of course ; and this game looks to be in keeping with the high-quality rendition of the Asphalt series, which in my view has been nothing short of excellent.
But, I will NOT be getting into any further EA racing games, sadly.
No more in-game purchasing boulescheid for me.

DiscoKing426

Completely agree with you.

Posted via CB10

Chanlion

Have you tried playing EA's Sim City? :D

lynxs_claw

I grabbed this one just so I have it.. the only issue is freeing up space to install it.. it's like 1.6 gb installed and about 0.9 gb just for the install file. Which means I need to find at least 2.5 gb free to install 1 game. I really wish you can offload some of the storage to the SD Card. 16 gb of internal memory is not enough...

Thachoc1

delete Asphalt 7. lol

ksean007

I totally agree about the storage which is a bit of a joke but I'm downloading it now since it supports the Moga Pro controller..i will post a review once I get it and try it out

Good hearing big games support blackberry
That's what we want
Thanks dev and keep supporting blackberry

From My Sexy Q10...

mechanoid

We just need the end of the advert to say available on Google play, iTunes and Blackberry 10.

This is why no one knows about the good things on BlackBerry. No placement. Always android and iTunes, never on the BlackBerry store.

Probably because there are three BlackBerry stores (bbos bb10 and pb) though. Don't you just love fragmentation.

Sad my Q10 is not supported :( I would have loved to play this with my keyboard as I am doing with sonic.. Just to know has it been released also on winphone?

Posted via CB10

axllebeer

Is that Sonic all stars racing?

kye2000

Yeah it was released for them months ago

Z30 STA100-2 10.2.1.1925 O2 UK

David Murray1

I don't really care for Asphalt series and I would they would release Need for Speed: Hot pursuit for BlackBerry 10.

Anthony Roberts5

YES!!! PLUS IT HAS MOGA SUPPORT!!! I am going to hook this up to my big screen and play it with my controller cant wait!!!! :)

THANKS GAMELOFT!!!!!

c0y3

Can crackberry contact gameloft to tell them to include BlackBerry 10 in their website as supported platform? Also with the link to download as they do with iPhone and Android.

nt300

The original was great. I'm getting this version too.

BBPandy

The game is only $0.99 but the car packages are a lot more. Some of them are $99.00 each. I know because I spent $40 - $50 playing this game on iOS lol

Anthony Roberts5

One thing with 10.2.1 (1925) the tilt controls are reverse tilting left goes right and vice versa....just a warning......also with the Z30 the graphics are set the VERY HIGH!!! :)

billsterjito

This is a problem for me. It makes the game un-playable.

Posted via CB10

Anthony Roberts5

Not really just use the touch steering for now...

billsterjito

Touch steering is not the same, I much prefer the tilt steering for games like this.

Has anyone got their MOGA Pro Controller working on Asphalt 8?

I'm running 10.2.1.1925 with the .1926 radio and Asphalt ain't recognizing my MOGA Pro at all - I can't select it in the menu settings and doesn't seem to recognize any input at all

Anyone got a MOGA Pro that's working? If so, what device and OS version you using?

Anthony Roberts5

I am in the same boat same version as you and you won't recognized my Moga pro at all I have the z30 and 1925 leak and no deal :(

Posted via my awesome 5 inch BlackBerry Z30 :)

Drewpoc

Asphalt 8 was one of the first Android games to support opengl es 3.0, the Z30 uses the adreno 320 gpu which also supports it....it will look nice on Z10, but smoother frame rates on Z30 and slightly higher detail

Posted via CB10

mrbquick

Is it difficult to write an app for 10.1 all the good apps are for 10.2. These developers need to understand that the carriers don't release the OS updates like they are suppose to and a lot of the developers customers get left behind from buying the apps. Please advise!

Posted via CB10

emmuniz1

Another 10.2

USA carriers SUCK Big time!!

I'm MongezaurioBerry

COACH HUFF

Unfortunately its not available for Z10 with 10.1.0.4200

Please update 10.2

Posted via CB10

ksean007

Okay hold your horses folks. It also appears they have done the same as with Modern combat 4 the Moga Pro controller is not being recognised and there is no feature to add a controller...Come on BlackBerry how can you allow people to buy something that is not what it says on the packet...very poor business practice indeed

Somebody please prove me wrong or am I just missing something..i think not since I can use Shadowgun flawlessly

Posted via CB10

TallPaul86

I can confirm Despicable Me: Minion Rush does work with MOGA Pro however Asphalt 8 definately doesn't work on my Z10

kr007

I can't believe the file size, why so big?! I wouldn't download it for that reason alone.
How come angry birds go is a fraction of that file size?
Crazy....but just my opinion of course.

I guess since I'm on AT&T and not running any leaks this game is not available for my Z10, C'mon AT&T and give us our update already!!!!!

I flick all my words from my amazing BlackBerry Z10

It's not available for Tmobile either.. very upset. USA sucks when it comes to supporting BlackBerry

Asks for an unsettling number of permissions. I don't like that.

Doesn't run on my Z10 !!!
Gameloft splashscreen is OK but then, it closes right away.
Is it because I'm running an unofficial OS (10.2.1.1055) ?

vegetto_456

just bought it, thanks for the heads up CB :)

They released a Ferrari update yesterday as well

Oh good, another game Gameloft will fail to support

I'm going down with the GrooGrux King

ksean007

They have now removed from the game description the support for Moga Pro controllers very sneaky indeed and I'm seeking a refund. Purely because this a clear case of false advertising, anyone know the best course of action to get a refund? Any help would be appreciated

I do t see Asphalt 8 in App World.. wtf? I have a Z10 with Tmobile. .. wtf?

Posted via CB10

billsterjito

I sent into Gameloft for a fix and they replied that I should un install the app and re install it to fix the problem. Has anyone tried this? The email also says that the BlackBerry London is not supported by Gameloft so technically there is nothing that can do.
