Asphalt 9 Legends Races Onto Mac

on

Until now, Asphalt 9 Legends has been known as a strictly mobile game. How do you play it anywhere else?

The answer was “you can’t” until today when Gameloft announced that Asphalt 9 Legends now runs on Mac computers. It is essentially the same program utilizing the same code, it just uses a shell (Mac Catalyst) to operate on different hardware.

Since the mobile and Mac versions are the same, this means maximum compatiblity. Cross-saves are possible. You can start a racing tournament on your phone, and continue it on the Mac. Players can use Sign In with Apple to transfer their progress between the versions. And all future updates to Asphalt 9 Legends will apply to both the mobile and Mac versions.

There are, of course, advantages to playing the game on Mac over a phone. Keyboard and mouse controls are a given, but you’ll also get to take advantage of the Mac’s extra horsepower to run it at a super-high resolution at 60 frames a second. Nice!

Announced on stage at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference last June, the release of Asphalt 9: Legends on Mac was made more seamless thanks to the tools provided by Apple’s Mac Catalyst development platform. Gameloft is excited to leverage this new technology and bring Asphalt 9: Legends to macOS in a very streamlined way, and to bring even more players to the races.

Asphalt 9 Legends is available to download on App Store, Google Play, the Microsoft Store and now Mac computers.
