Asphalt 8: Airborne update adds Tenerife tracks, new cars, Apple Watch support, more

Gameloft has updated the iOS version of Asphalt 8: Airborne with new cars, a new location, and Apple Watch support.

Nothing on the Android front yet but Gameloft says the update is "coming soon to other devices."

Anyway, first off, that new location: it's the island of Tenerife. There are four new tracks that take you across the island's beaches, mountains, and wilderness.

Moving on, we have eight more cars on the way. So far, only the Lamborghini Aventador and Audi R8 LMS Ultra have been added. The other six will be unlockable time-limited events in the next few weeks.

Multiplayer events have also been revamped with this update. This means, quite simply, that you can compete with up to 12 players rather than just eight.

Asphalt 8: Airborne also has Apple Watch notifications now, too. The idea is for it to let you know about a new event or special car offer while you're not playing.

Lastly, this update adds 64-bit support and new custom decals.

You can download Asphalt 8: Airborne for free on the App Store and Google Play. As noted above, the Android version hasn't got this update yet.
