Social media gifts
|Anniversary Hunt Ticket links|
- Anniversary Hunt (September 15 – X, 2020).
On September 15, Gameloft started posting links for an "Anniversary Hunt" event throughout their social media channels. Opening such a link on an Android or iOS device that has Asphalt 8 installed grants one Spyker C8 Preliator Anniversary Hunt Ticket. Tickets stored in the inventory decrease the price of the Spkyer C8 Preliator Special Offer which started on the same day. Finding all 7 links will grant the car for free. The Seventh Anniversary Hunt Tickets have a sale value of 5,000 each which can be sold after receiving the car.
Bugs / Glitches
- Mazzanti Evantra Millecavalli Festival duration bug: Samsung users who downloaded the update via the Galaxy Store have the same Festival duration as iOS.
- This bug has been fixed and the festival duration was adjusted to match the delay of the Android release of the update.
- Multiplayer issue: A majority of Android users have reported being unable to play Multiplayer even with a strong Wi-Fi connection.
- This issue seems to be fixed by installing the 5.3.1a update.
- Limited music selection: The game menu only plays one track (The Commission / Breton) and in a race, there are only three music tracks of different genres (Holdin' On (Skrillex and Nero Remix) / MONSTA (Bass), Ares (Villains Remix) / Bloc Party (Rock) and Professional Griefers ft. Gerard Way / deadmau5 (Electronic)). It is only on the Orbital Loop and Terra 9 tracks that there is an additional music track available (Redline / DJ Gontran (Orbital Loop) and Bleach (Max Kommodor remix) / Krubb Wenkroist (Terra 9)).
- Missing Festival quests: For Android users who downloaded the update via the Galaxy Store and certain iOS users, the quests of days 4, 5, and 6 of the Mazzanti Evantra Millecavalli Festival do not appear with a blank page only being shown.
- This seems to be a festival duration synchronization issue with users who downloaded the game via the Google Play Store. (Android)
- Empty Events Menu: On Windows, the Events menu may show a "No Time-Limited Events available" message instead of showing a list of ongoing events, even if there are actually ongoing events running. A workaround for this bug is to access the events directly from the Calendar on the main menu. Restarting the app may also fix this issue.
- Loss of profile data: Several players have reported losing owned vehicles and upgrades while others have had their profiles be completely lost.
- Contacting Customer Care and providing the Gameloft ID will let them give restored data.
- Splash Screen Game Crash: On Windows, the game can crash immediately after the Gameloft 20th Anniversary splash screen is shown.
- The exclusive vehicles offer during October 16 - 29, 2020 disappeared after an hour it started, although the offer had a validity of 13 days. The offer came back again on October 19, 2020.
