The 2019 Holiday Update is the 37th update of Asphalt 8: Airborne.

Announcement Edit

Main article: 2019 Holiday Update (Patch Notes)

Ho, ho, ho! A coldsnap is blowing in at top speed. Are you prepared to warm things up with some holiday heat!

WINTER FESTIVAL
Celebrate the season with 2 weeks of cheerful challenges and great gifts. This event will star not one, but two amazing cars: the Lotus Elise Cup 260 and the mighty Koenigsegg Jesko!

ULTIMATE VEHICLES
A new vehicle type just rolled up! Ultimate cars don't require any upgrades; they're already perfect for dominating the track.

UNWRAP NEW CARS
Dashing through the snow, over the fields you go, with the pure power of the Italdesign Zerouno, Pininfarina Battista, and the Ferrari SF90 Stradale!

ASSEMBLY MODIFICATIONS
Class-S vehicles no longer require Blueprints to acquire. They now can be obtained in special events or in the Shop. However, you can still use Blueprints for a discount when buying the corresponding vehicle!

GET MORE RARE PARTS!
Fusing spare cards now produces Fusion Coins, a valuable new currency that allows you to apply Pro Kit upgrades!

APPLE SIGN-IN
Sign into your Apple App Store account to synchronise your progress across all your devices without having to worry about your privacy. It's reliable and fast, just like our top premium cars.

  • The former "Buy & Apply" feature has been extended to all vehicles. Players who don't have enough Pro Kit or Vehicle Kit cards can buy and apply the missing cards with A8 tokens full Tokens directly in the pro upgrade section. This can be seen as a hidden introduction of Token prices for Pro upgrades.
    • The new feature hides the Fusion coin upgrade prices when cards are missing.
    • VIP Players get discounts according to their VIP level, for example 50 % off for VIP levels 10 and above.
    • The Token prices are inconsistent and not proportional to the Fusion Coin exchange rates. For example, while a Class S Part card gives 3 times the amount of Fusion Coins for a Class D Part card, it costs ~4.5 times the amount of Tokens of a Class D Part card.

  • Pro upgrade prices:
    • Cards:
      • Festival vehicles need the same amount of Kit cards than before.
      • Pro Kit vehicles often need less cards than before, notably Mid-Tech, Advanced-Tech and often Engine cards.
    • Fusion Coins:
      • The conversion from Credit to Fusion Coin has introduced new price progressions. The price for a level 1 upgrade is multiplied with different factors for all further upgrades. See table to the right.
      • The new progressions have caused the pro upgrade prices for most vehicles to explode. The total costs are now around 3 to 12 times higher than before. Some example costs:

Cosmetic changes Edit

A8 Jesko Loading Screen
  • New app icon of a Koenigsegg Jesko.
  • New loading splash screen of a Koenigsegg Jesko on Patagonia.
  • Iceland, Tokyo, and the Alps are decorated with Christmas scenery objects once again until January 2020.
  • Fusion Coins are now displayed at the top of the screen as a currency.
  • Pro Kit Boxes:
    • The rarity of Kit Cards in Festival Boxes has been changed from "Legendary" to a new fictitious "Festival". When selecting a Kit Card to fuse in the inventory, four new text colors appear, corresponding with the card design and the Fusion Coin price, but not necessarily with the vehicle class. This may be a hint to future rarity categories:
      • Fusion coins full a8 2,000: light copper
      • Fusion coins full a8 2,500: silver blue
      • Fusion coins full a8 3,000: light gold
      • Fusion coins full a8 3,500: gold-red
    • The three former Fusion Boxes have been renamed.
      • Starter Box → Starter Fusion Box
      • Extra Box → Extra Fusion Box
      • Ultra Box → Ultra Fusion Box
    • As of December 28, 2019, the word "cards" in the descriptions of the four Fusion Boxes has been changed to "non-Festival cards". It can be expected that the descriptions of other boxes will follow.

Exclusive vehicles Edit

Events Edit

  1. Winter Festival December 19, 2019
  2. Apollo Intensa Emozione R&D December 30, 2019

  4. Lamborghini Centenario LP 770-4 R&D January 12, 2020
  5. Black Ice Multiplayer Season January 13, 2020

Bugs/glitches Edit

  • The required ranks of the NanoFlowcell QUANTINO's mastery were swapped with those of the QUANT FE, thus making it impossible to progress through even with a MAX PRO QUANTINO if its mastery had not already been completed. This has since been fixed. 
  • The Pagani Huayra has been sold as an Exclusive vehicle for A8 tokens full 13,000, which is the price for the Pagani Huayra BC.
  • For some Android users, the green icon representing new content appears at the "Play" tab. The icon does not disappear even if Daily Tasks are accessed.
  • Even though the achievement, "S is for Superior" has a requirement of 15 Class S cars owned, it can be unlocked with 10 cars.
