  • Already updated
  • Is it possible that they do an update to reduce the big space it takes?
  • +1
  • After the Update the Game takes less space on your Windows Phone.
  • Btw the update is of 1 gb or something less ???
  • I think it was 970 MB.
  • Have to download 970 mb again. This is ridiculous!! They update this game frequently and it means Every time you have to download 1 gb. It is inconvenient for limited data plan users. Though its good they update it.
  • Since the Download Limit over Data Lines is 100MB i doubt that it will affect any limited data plan user .. except of that he cant download it without the wifi
  • Well I installed it from pc, now ihave to do it again.
  • 970 Mb b4:installation after installing and decompression it goes up to over 2gb check storage sense
  • They did it. The size of the game had defeated from 1.70 to 1.24 gb
  • Biggest issue I am seeing is that it will not let users update it even with 2 GB of free space. Should not have to delete so much other stuff in order to update an app.
  • Should be good this game is one of my favs
  • Yay new location :D.
    On a side note, we actually have cross platform saving through Facebook connection right? I.e. I have an iPad and this Lumia, when I connect asphalt 8 in both devices to my FB account, I can cross platform save right?
  • Right!!
  • Doesn't work bro, not cross platform
  • It is not a cross platform game. You can sync your progress only on Windows Devices i.e Between WindowsPhone 8/8.1 and Windows 8/8.1/10. 
  • Woww 730
  • I just replaced my old phone with a new one and I lost all my game progress which was about 85% game completed. Anyone knows how could I restore my data?
  • Data gets saved when you get connected to internet, i think you should have played it offline, so it was not saved i think.
  • Well no, I'm sure I played it online. I also lost all progress on Minion Rush game.
  • When you install again, it ll ask you for store cloud data or local data. Store cloud data. Work great for me
  • Yes, but on my old phone. I don't get that on new one. It just starts from beginning.
  • You have to sign in to your same account, usually a Facebook account and then it will ask you if you want to synce your cloud data. Without signing in, it sees you as a new player with only your locally stored game, as in, starting over.
  • If you have connected it with your FB account you can mail Gameloft customer care about it.They will help you to get your data back.
  • I'll try that, thanks.
  • Just connect n sync ur fb account.
  • Ooh savage rivale
  • Which season is there san diego maps ?
  • Season 3 is the first with "San Diego Hafen" I think.
  • I don't think thats a real game playing on Lumia 730....Windows Os need some graphics just like iphone...Asphalt 8 on iphone has metal graphics which looks awesome.smh :3
  • Bruhhhh....I got a 520 and I play that game on it and you're saying that the 730 can't play it???? PLEASE!! SMH
  • I m saying about the graphics...they just need to alter the graphics on Windows Os i know gpu plays a important role in graphics ;)
  • I thought you meant that it couldn't play it at all
  • Maaaan I had just updated the game few days ago....and now another one!!
  • Already updated.. My fav game..
  • That orange 730 is looking awesome!!!!
  • I can't download the update it gives me a error and tells me to update my phone. I have Lumia cyan with 4gb of free space so it should work.
  • Darn it.. I just downloaded the game yesterday before the update came and now I have to download update again grrr
  • Freemium crap.
  • Your words do not match the reality of Asphalt 8.
  • Only if you're impatient
  • We need something like forza horizon!
    Maybe a GT racing 2 and asphalt 8 crossover!
  • Did you mean RR3 from EA ?
  • No. Forza Horizon is more of an open world game. RR3 is a prettier/better version of GTR2. Noob Saibot 2011 would like to see a game like Forza Horizon for mobile, open world, beautiful graphics and adrenaline fueled racing.
  • Will redownload to my 1020 once it returns from repairs.
  • They should give the update which is required.. Like what changes they have made.. Which would be our should be >300mb.
    As its very painful to download 1GB update every time they throw it.
  • Oh, theres 1 Nissan car now, maybe I will gige it a try again.
  • How much free storage do you need to download the update
  • I cannot install the update with 2.21 GB free, so I would love to know the magic number as well. Should not have to transfer all sorts of photos or videos in order to do a simple update.
  • Downloaded and installed it easily on my 520 with 3.8GB free space
  • I noticed that when you're watching the car in the store, it turns faster
  • +520
  • I can't even install it! Lumia 920 Dev. Preview. 
  • Why i didn't get any discount for each car like android version? And did i missed any update which, if i hit wall or stone my screen will broken too? I don't have it. Whyyy??
  • There was a couple of discounts in past weeks, as well as virtual money. I am not sure how often it happens on Android phone. I just have to check-in game every day.
  • Please help me!! In the store it says that I've already installed it, but I don't have the game, so I can't install or even erase it, it occurred after this update. What can I do??
  • Best racing game for windows phone. I updated this game 3days ago and now again a new big update is here. Everything is ok but update size should be less for each new update.
  • Do u get any discount for car?
  • Update again,,lol
  • Stop updating the game fuckin everyday... I download the xap from our college lab and it becomes useless after some time ... We have to update the whole game.....
  • Love this game! My favorite game in years
  • Seems like graphics are degraded a bit from the last update on 512mb ram devices. But anyway great update looking forward to the koenigsegg one
  • need help,after downloading a xap file ive installed asphalt 8,but after installing do ive to dwnload smthng more??
