Asphalt 8: Airborne for Windows 8.1 also has Xbox Live support in latest update

Just before Christmas, Asphalt 8: Airborne for Windows Phone got updated with Xbox Live achievements and more. Now the Windows 8.1 version of Gameloft's arcade racing game has received the same update.

In addition to Xbox Live achievements, the Windows 8.1 version includes some new cars, including the Tramontana XTR and Arrinera Hussarya, along with a new location, three new winter-themed tracks and more. It also shows that Gameloft continues to be supportive of Microsoft's Xbox Live system by updating more games to include those features that are highly requested by Windows gaming fans.

  • My guess is consumer preview for desktop version on 21st, and phone and tablets version available after build even in April. I hope they come one go on 21st
  • Just get Developer Preview, then you are not shackled to your carrier for updates.
  • Yup I am already on Developer Preview. Actually I was thinking GRD2 will come then Windows 10
  • I didn't get denim, u r talking about 10, wait a little longer!
  • Post this junk in the forums please
  • Sector 8 is a killer level. Gotta love Gameloft for supporting the plattform.
  • How do you play the Sector 8 level? Don't see it anywhere 
  • It is available as one of the multiplayer races in the events tab. Spoiler: Take the worm holes to finish first!

  • Jup, Thanks a mil Gameloft! Keep it up... Now if I could just be able to change my username in Asphalt 8 that would be great...

  • Beating Asphalt 8 = In App Purchases
    It's coming from someone who's played a lot of it...
  • Thank you!!! I'm glad someone agrees here. I played it the second it came out, because I loved the first game. However, you need to quit your day job to be able to get cars with out in app purchasing. The 7th game did it perfectly.
  • Where is 21st jan full news
  • no nwz surprize by M.S
  • Post this junk in the forums please. This is ridiculous.
  • What about Lumia denim
  • How is this even relevant to this article?
  • I'm impressed with gameloft. I'm more so impressed that Microsoft seems to have lightened up with Xbox live issues.
  • Looks like either gameloft had a change of heart or MS is finally getting round to sorting out the xbl certification process (there hasn't been much in regards to the open-source framework for xbl).
  • Can you play this game with keyboard/gamepad?
  • Way yes, just plug your Xbox controller in and game recognises it when you start the game up.
  • Does this share save games across phone and pc?
  • Hey app updates aren't showing up in store on my windows 8.1 pro dell laptop, why is it happening??
  • Double check to make sure you are up to date with Windows updates maybe? Otherwise, uninstall and reinstall the app?
  • Maybe you have the store to automatic updates. This is the default setting Win 8.1
  • I think your right, coz first I had to update it manually but aftr some windows software update it doesn't require that
  • You guys are too late asphalt 8 was update 3 days ago on windows!
  • With CES this past week, I would expect the next 2-3 days of catch up news.
  • And coip rejoices...
  • #SaveXboxWP has come full circle, baby.
  • Nice..
  • One question, isn't Xbox games certification is very troublesome for developers to get pass? Why are there so many gameloft's game updated with Xbox live support? Microsoft changed their policy for Xbox windows phone games?
  • Okay that's great!
  • Can do game be played without a touchscreen?
  • Look at the pic guys... How amazing this games is... Lovely...!
  • Nice, opened it and 8 achievements popped.
  • Lovely game. Play it on my L920. But like someone said already, tho beat this game, it's gotta be by in-app purchases. Oh and, you'll have to quit your day job too.
  • Ou est la maj
