Gameloft will be launching the next game in the Asphalt series of high octane racing games called Asphalt OverDrive. The game will be the ninth installment in the series, preceded by Asphalt 8: Airborne. Similar to the last game, Asphalt Overdrive will be free to download, but will come with in-app purchases. The game will debut on Android, iOS, Windows Phone and Windows.
The gameplay takes a significant turn from the earlier games and instead of looped tracks, Overdrive will feature endless tracks. That’s right, the game will be an endless runner of sort. And like other endless runners, the game will play in vertical orientation on your phone instead of a horizontal one. You’ll have to swipe left or right to change lanes, which is another change from the way cars are handled in the earlier games in the series.
Asphalt Overdrive will feature several licenced cars, including some exotic ones, as well as multiple gameplay elements like cop chases, smashing other cars and properties and what not. You can check out the trailer for the game below.
