Asphalt 9: Legends is a racing game in the series that focuses on fast-driving fun. This year the game adds new cars, a wide range of accessible control schemes, race modes, and nitro boosts for extra speed.

You drive a range of hundreds of cars, each from a different class and progressively featuring higher performance and rarity. You start with a car in the lowest class (Class D), the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X and work your way up. Each car can be customized with paint jobs, rims, and brake callipers.

Racing is fast and furious and towards the quick competitive end of the spectrum rather than realism. You can use "nitro shockwave" to increase speed substantially. There are three modes: Career, Multiplayer, and Events. There are three race types: racing, time attack and hunted where you must escape the police

The game features tracks set in Cairo, the Himalayas, the U.S. Midwest, Scotland, and the Caribbean. It also brings back five locations from previous games in the series: San Francisco, Rome, New York City, Shanghai and Osaka.
