Asphalt 9 Legends is a racing video game developed in 2018 by Gameloft Barcelona and published by Gameloft. Its official release date was 25th July 2018. It is the mainly the ninth installment of the asphalt series.
The graphics of Asphalt 9 Legends have been significantly improved compared to its 2013 predecessor, Asphalt 8: Airborne. Moreover It makes use of the Bullet physics engine.
Asphalt 9 Legends also has more features, such as new prestigious cars, new navigation systems, new events, and “nitro shockwave,” which is a recurring feature from Asphalt 6: Adrenaline and Asphalt 7: Heat.
Generally, the gameplay in Asphalt 9 Legends is similar to Asphalt 8: Airborne with few noticeable differences in graphics and design. As a matter of fact, there are 48 cars to collected by the player, all of which are extremely prestigious. Just like in the previous games, there are five classes: B, C, A, S, and D. All cars in the game now require “blueprints” to unlock and level up. To add on, a new car editor is in the game.
Basically on mobile, Asphalt 9 has three control options: “Tilt to Steer,” “Tap to Steer,” and the brand new “Touch Drive” mode. Touch Drive is similar to the controls from endless runner games, where you swipe to change paths or actions.
Meanwhile on Windows 10 devices, Touch Drive and manual controls can be used with the keyboard; or with touch, if the device has a touchscreen.
Moreover In the game, there is “Career Mode” and “Multiplayer Mode.” Career Mode, which is a recurring feature from its predecessors, consists of five “chapters.” Each chapter has many seasons where you are prompted to race. Whereas Multiplayer Mode, also a recurring feature, is where you can race with other players. In multiplayer, there is a ranking system, with consists of “Bronze”, “Silver”, “Gold”, “Platinum” and “Legend”.
There are multiple race modes in Asphalt 9. The “classic” race mode from previous games has returned. Along with this, new race modes are in the game, such as “Time Attack,” when the vehicle has to cross the finish line before time runs out; and “Hunted,” when the vehicle has to race against police cars, in a car chase.
Also note that, the game features new race tracks in Rome, Cairo, the Himalayas, the U.S. Midwest, and Scotland. Nevertheless, it also brings back two tracks from previous games, which are San Francisco and Shanghai.
The game Asphalt 9 Legends was developed by Gameloft’s Barcelona Studio which also made Asphalt 6: Adrenaline, Asphalt 8: Airborne, and co-developed Asphalt Xtreme with Gameloft Madrid. The game uses the Bullet physics engine, and the Jet Engine game engine.
Continuing the tradition from Asphalt 8, the game features licensed soundtracks.
