Asphalt 9 Legends - Soft Launch Preview

Take on the most fearless drivers and become the next Asphalt Legend in this brand new arcade racing experience. In Asphalt 9: Legends, players will be able to take the wheel of over 50 prestigious dream cars across the most amazing real world locations.

You can even create your own Race Club and recruit players to compete as a team to be the best in the world!

Overview

A CONSOLE EXPERIENCE IN THE PALMS OF YOUR HANDS
Immerse yourself in this hyper-realistic arcade racing game, with meticulously detailed real cars, HDR techniques and stunning visual and particle effects that turn every race into a real blockbuster movie.

THE MOST PRESTIGIOUS CARS
Collect over 50 of the world’s most amazing speed machines. Each vehicle has been carefully selected based on its aesthetics and high performance to create the most desirable line-up of any Asphalt game to date.

CUSTOMISATION AT YOUR FINGERTIPS
Use the new car editor to define the exact colour and materials for your car. You can also pick the colour of the Rims and Brake Calipers and add carbon parts to fully customise your rides.

BREATHTAKING LOCATIONS
Feel the thrill of gravity-defying races across 70 tracks in the most amazing real-world locations. Race around giant tornados in the American wilderness, avoid landslides in the Himalayas and hit the ramps to perform awesome stunts.

A BLAST OF ARCADE FUN
Charge your nitro to unleash the ultimate Nitro Pulse and break the sound barrier. Double-tap on the brake to do a 360° at any time and take down your opponents in style.

BECOME A LEGEND
Start your journey in Career mode by completing over 60 seasons and 800 races. Become a real Asphalt legend by racing against up to 8 players in real time through the different leagues of the World Series Multiplayer mode.

ULTIMATE RACING CONTROL
Master the innovative TOUCH DRIVE, a new control scheme that streamlines steering to let players focus on the fun of racing. You can also switch to manual controls (tilt or tap to steer) and learn how to drive like a pro Asphalt racer.

STRENGTH IN NUMBERS
For the first time in the Asphalt series, you can create your own community of like-minded racers with the Club feature. Collaborate with your Club members to unlock Milestone rewards and rise up the ranks of the Club leaderboard.

Race Modes

Classic: In Classic mode, the goal is to win the race (come in 1st, 2nd or 3rd depending on the race's Goals).

Time Attack: The race has a time limit. To win the race, the player has to cross the finish line before the timer runs out. A bit of time is added to the timer each time the player crosses a checkpoint, and time can also be gained by collecting green clocks around the track.

Hunted: The race has a time limit. To win the race, the player will have to escape in time or will be busted. To take down the cops, you can either Shockwave-knockdown them, land on them, or do a 360, as they are stronger than normal cars. For this race mode, the player has to successfully do stunts without hitting the cars at the end (not doing so will cause you to hit the cops' barricade) to win the race. Any wreck instantly results in disqualification. In future updates, the player will no longer get busted upon any wrecks (unless running out of time or hitting the barricades at the end of the track).

POTENTIAL FUTURE GAME MODES

The modes listed below can not (yet) be played in the game. It is possible that they will be integrated in a future release, but as of v1.0.1 they are not.
Elimination: In Elimination mode, whoever is in last place during the race gets a timer. When the timer reaches zero, the last-place racer is eliminated. The timer resets each time a racer is eliminated. Your goal is to be the last one standing.

Stunts: In Stunts mode, the player has to perform Stunts in order to get points. They have to keep doing Stunts on a regular basis in order to maintain a Combo. The bigger the Combo, the more points the player gets. The race has a time limit and the player has to reach one of the 3 point targets to successfully pass the race. Each target reached grants a Career Flag.

Overclock: When overclocked, a car gets increased stats for a certain period of time. A car gets Overclocked if the player stays in last position for more than 3 seconds, if they pick up a Nitro Bottle or if they hit other cars that are already Overclocked. Picking up Nitro Bottles and doing Stunts while Overclocked adds time to the Overclock timer. Once the timer runs out, the car Overloads. This decreases its stats for a very short period of time before it returns to its normal state. The main goal here is still to win the race (depending on the race conditions).

Car Tuning

"Tuning" a car is required to get your car to higher stats. This game encourages upgrading more than games such as Asphalt 8. You can star up cars to unlock more upgrades by collecting blueprints for the car. As you star up your car, the upgrades progressively increase in price.

All cars in the game allow you to upgrade cars with blueprints called "Import parts." Every car has a base price for upgrading with these parts, and regardless of how many you have already used, they do not change price as you go on. The 3 different import parts are as follows:

  • Blueprint uncommon a9 Uncommon
  • Blueprint rare a9 Rare
  • Blueprint epic a9 Epic

Uncommon import parts are parts that are shared with every car in the game. You can use these parts to upgrade every classed car alike, so you can upgrade Class D or Class A cars with the same import card. These are generally the cheapest parts to upgrade with.

Rare import parts are parts that are class specific. There are still 4 different parts that you recieve, but they do vary between the different classes. Some parts are only used for Class C, while others are only used for Class B. Obviously, you cannot apply a rare import onto a car that isn’t in the respective class. These are a bit more expensive than the uncommon import parts.

Epic import parts are the most expensive parts you upgrade with, most of them being at the Credits small a9 100,000 range, and they are car specific parts. Some cars in the game, especially cars that are high in their class, or are high in class (i.e. Lamborghini Centenario, Ford GT, Pininfarina H2 Speed, W Motors Lykan Hypersport, Porsche 918, etc.) are cars that commonly require these parts to level up. They are mostly found within specific packs, such as event packs, and are needed only when your car is high in stars.
