PARIS, November 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
The first update to Asphalt 8: Airborne makes it the only game to feature Clio R.S. 200 EDC, the latest sports model to come out of the Renault Sport stable in 2013.
Available at the App Store and soon via Google Play, the game's launch will coincide with the organisation of a competition organised by Renault Sport, with a real Clio R.S. 200 EDC up for grabs.
Following the success of the Alpine A110-50 in the game Asphalt 7: Heat, Renault Sport and Gameloft - a leading global publisher of digital and social games - have worked closely together to add Clio R.S. 200 EDC to the 47 high-performance cars present in the latest game in the series.
Clio R.S. 200 EDC is the latest model to have been developed by Renault Sport Technologies. In addition to its outstanding performance credentials and versatility, it incorporates a number of hi-tech enjoyment-enhancing features, such as steering wheel-mounted paddle-shift gear changes, an R.S. Monitor 2.0 data acquisition system and the R.S. Drive button to adapt the car to the way you want to drive (Normal - Sport - Race).
Renault Sport shares with Gameloft a spirit of community that brings together sportscar and video game fans alike.
An arcade game at the cutting-edge of technology
Asphalt 8: Airborne, the latest game in the successful Gameloft series, enables players to compete in arcade races like never before courtesy of a new, high-performance physics engine and new game modes.
Thanks to this update, fans of Clio R.S. 200 EDC will be able to pull off breath-taking airborne feats, travelling through the air in a way that would be impossible in real life.
"For me, the most enjoyable aspect to this project was convincing Renault Sport to include Clio R.S. 200 EDC in a game in which the car will spend the majority of its time flying and gliding through the air, whereas Renault Sport's engineers are far more renowned for their chassis and suspension design expertise!" notes Geoffrey Vion, Client & Digital Marketing Manager.
"We are delighted to be able to offer our fans and those of Renault a chance to drive Clio R.S. 2000 EDC in Asphalt 8: Airborne. We are continuing to upgrade the series with an increasingly comprehensive catalogue of cars and new, breath-taking game modes," adds Gameloft's Alexandre Tan, VP Brand Partnerships.
New Hi-Fi quality engine noises have similarly been incorporated by the Gameloft developers to guarantee an even more realistic sound immersion.
Multi-player function and phantom challenges
Given that it would be rude not to share your passion for driving, the multi-player mode allows up to eight people to compete against one another in the same race, or in asynchronous challenges. The game also enables players to compare their best scores with those of friends and drivers worldwide.
Virtual world meets real life
A source of inspiration for the Renault Sport Technologies teams, Asphalt 8: Airborne will come alive in the form of a video entitled 'Challenge Us If You Can! #4'.
The fourth in a series of viral videos produced by Renault Sport, it puts Clio R.S. 200 EDC at the heart of the action and illustrates the company's partnership with Gameloft. An eclectic selection of drivers takes each other on in the Clio R.S. 200 EDC, with numerous references to the video game itself.
These drivers come from a number of very different backgrounds:
A ten-day competition offered throughout Europe will see one Asphalt 8: Airborne player win a real Clio R.S. 200 EDC.
The new Asphalt 8: Airborne update is downloadable for free on the App Store and soon on Google Play.
