The game features seven different categories of off-road vehicles, including buggies, rally cars, SUVs and trucks. Players will be able to drive off the beaten path with as many as 35 different versions of real-world cars from companies like Jeep, Ford, Mercedes-Benz, Predator, Dodge, Chevrolet and others. Players will also be able to upgrade their vehicles with special bonuses.

The game will feature several different track locations, from driving on glaciers, to keeping your tires on sand dunes, jungles, urban steel mills and more. The game also will have five different modes to play, as drivers will get access to over 400 Career events and over 500 Mastery challenges. Asphalt Xtreme will also feature limited-time special events, and there’s also online multiplayer with up to eight different gamers.

If you are a fan of the previous Asphalt games, will you be checking out the new Asphalt Xtreme to see if it can match or even exceed your expectations?

    Been waiting for a good rally game on mobile for a long time. Hopefully this will meet my expectations

        Do tell us why. Is it just the same old Asphalt, but offroad? Is the road response not realistic enough?
        I enjoy both Asphalt and GT Racing. If this is a cross between the 2 (asphalt animation and aggressive driving with GT realistic cornering), I will be happy.

          Its just the same game as Asphalt. Different car upgrade mechanism, but same physics. The only thing that has changed is that the road is dirt but that doesn’t change the feel of driving compared to asphalt 8. Oh and there’s plenty of bugs in this as well.

            To add to this, the only reason you would play this over Asphalt 8 is the different choice of cars, otherwise its the same game with a different skin.

            To me it honestly doesn’t matter. We get all new tracks in an arcade package that’s fun as hell. It’s basically a portable version of motorstorm Pacific rift. I just wish there was a one time payment to get rid of the timers and iap. Now, that crap is terrible.

      Half year ago,after being fired from my old job , i’ve had luck to find about this amazing company online that was a life saver for me… They offer jobs for which people can work online from their home. My last paycheck after working with them for three months was 12000 bucks… Best thing about it was that only thing required is basic typing skills and internet connection… KORTA.NU/NDe

    Is there support for Google Cloud Save?

    • Kiva Gordon

      It uses Google Play games services

      • Patrik Selin

        But does it support Cloud Save or just achievements and leaderboards?
