Asphalt 8: Airborne shredding its tyres this summer for $0.99

Gameloft has released a teaser for the next installment in the Asphalt series, and it looks absolutely incredible. Asphalt 8: Airborne is due to land sometime this summer, but ahead of that we get to see some beautiful looking screenshots and this teaser trailer. The price has also been revealed, and it will cost us just $0.99.

Asphalt 8 will feature tracks in a wide variety of locations, from the deserts of Nevada, to London, to a revamped Monaco circuit from Asphalt 7, all with alternative routes to explore. Environmental conditions play a role in how the tracks behave, and we're promised snow, dust, and rain. The physics engine has been re-engineered for Asphalt 8 as well, so we're told to look forward to pulling off "death-defying stunts, destroy objects in your path, and catch major air off ramps." Nice.

Asphalt 8 will also feature multiplayer in both synchronous and asynchronous forms, with the latter more recently seen in EA's Real Racing 3. Gameloft certainly has our attention, and we're looking forward to getting our hands on this one. Excited?

And I'm sure the catch will be those wonderful in-app purchases. Bait and Switch at it's finest.

I think there will be no bait and switch system in asphalt 8!!

in-app purchases is the single most "let's @$$ f#(k our customers" feature ever invented.

It is spelled tires not tyres.

$0.99! Now I know it will be even worse than 7 regarding in-app purchases. I hate this trend

Looks nice as I judged. Hope it will be looked more polished and more better than asphalt 7
