Fans of racing games on Android devices may be familiar already with the game Asphalt 8: Airborne. The game was updated this week and gained some new features. Most important to fans of the game is that the update brings with it some new cars including the Mercedes Biome concept car and the Nissan GT-R NISMO along with three others.

A new season of 74 events has landed with the update making the 9th season of events since the game launched. A new location was added to the game giving players the chance to race in Dubai in the Middle East.

Asphalt 8: Airborne currently has a 4.5 star rating with over 1.8 million reviews turned in. In all, there are 56 cars to choose from that hail from real carmakers like Lamborghini, Bugatti, Ferrari, and others. There are nine different settings to race and all tracks are available in original and mirror mode.

One of the hallmarks of the game is a damage system that is highly detailed to change the way cars perform in the game if you crash. Asphalt 8: Airborne is a free game to download supported by in-app purchases.

    Is anyone still playing this “game” anymore? I myself left after the game data wiping forced update destroyed what little progress I managed to grind out of this increasingly tedious pay-to-win racer. I read that afterwards (possibly due to noone paying for the anti-consumer iap’s) Shamesoft crippled the game further by infesting it with “recharge times” between races and/or repairs?

    Who in their right mind would want to play this to get the new cars or tracks, when access to the original content is closed behind iap’s anyway?
