'Asphalt 8: Airborne' is now free on Windows 8

The popular racing game's Windows 8 version now matches the iOS and Android editions in price.

With eight iterations, you know Gameloft's Asphalt series of tablet and smartphone racing games is doing something right. And now Asphalt 8 is even more right, with a new price tag of nothing on Windows 8 tablets (and Windows Phone 8, for that matter).

It's unclear whether this is a fleeting promotional offer or the game's new permanent price. But the eighth game in the series is already free on Android and iOS, and has been for some time, so there's a chance this could be a permanent change.

Asphalt 8 launched in 2013, and it made it onto TabTimes' recent lists of the best iPad games, the best Android tablet games, and the best Windows tablet games. [via WPCentral]
