Smartphone brand Realme is partnering with Gameloft for an Asphalt 8: Airborne championship in India, inventively labelled since the Realme Championship.
Over the course of five days from October 1 to October 5, gamers across India will be able to take part in a limited time to find the highest score in the favorite racing game on Android or iOS. The winner has Rs. 50,000 and a Realme 2 Pro 8GB telephone while the runner-up gets Rs. 30,000 and a Realme 2 Guru 6GB phone. The next greatest score in Asphalt 8: Airborne gets Rs. 20,000 along with a Realme 2 Pro 4GB phone. All participants will acquire in-game rewards after finishing the timed in-game event.
“With the newest technologies of Realme, we’re reaching to the gaming community through Realme Championship,” stated Francis Wong, Brand Director of Realme India at a prepared statement. “Realme Championship is a way to bridge the gap between console and mobile to market cellular gaming with Gameloft.”
“We are extremely delighted to work with Realme to deliver an unparalleled gaming experience to their users throughout the Realme Championship,” said Nitin Goel, Country Manager, Indian-subcontinent, Gameloft in precisely the same statement. “We are constantly working to create interesting events to improve the gaming ecosystem and we truly believe that Realme 2 Guru is a best mid-range smartphone that will take mobile gaming to a next level.”
Despite Asphalt 9: Legends available for a few months now, it doesn’t run too well on mid-range and low devices, giving Gameloft an chance to flaunt Asphalt 8: Airborne as a viable option instead. This isn’t the sole mobile gaming event in the country, using Tencent hosting its PUBG Mobile tournament in cooperation with Oppo, it would appear that today is as good a time as any to become gaming on your smartphone.
