Microsoft and Asphalt Games teamed up for a giveaway of five Surface Duo 2 devices. The Surface Duo 2 features two touch displays that apps and games can span across. Most of the Surface Duo optimized apps are made by Microsoft, but Asphalt Games built Asphalt 9: Legends to work with the foldable device. The game spans across both displays of either the Surface Duo or Duo 2, creating an experience some have compared to the Nintendo 3DS.

Asphalt Games shared the full list of rules for the contest on Instagram. The most important steps that people need to take are following Asphalt Games, liking the post about the giveaway, and tagging a friend.

Earlier this year, our news writer and gaming expert Zachary Boddy took a look at Xbox Cloud Gaming on the Surface Duo. He said the pair "almost reach the Xbox handheld dream." Between games streamed through Xbox Cloud Gaming and local games optimized for the Duo like Asphalt 9: Legends, there are plenty of dual-screen gaming experiences to try out on the foldable.
