OnePlus partnered with Gameloft to launch an exclusive online racing championship, which is touted to be the first exclusive online racing challenge on mobile in India.
Titled as ‘OnePlus Asphalt Cup’, the new competition will run between June 13 and July 8. It will be open for all mobile-gaming enthusiasts in the country who will play Asphalt 8: Airborne.
“Bringing together the newest technology and raw performance of OnePlus 6 in association with Asphalt 8, the best mobile racing title by Gameloft, ‘OnePlus Asphalt Cup’ is dedicated to the gaming community in India,” said Vikas Agarwal, General Manager, OnePlus India.
Top three winners will receive a combined cash prize worth Rs. 9 lakhs along with the OnePlus 6 smartphones and Bullets Wireless Bluetooth earphones. Participants will also receive in-game rewards worth Rs. 2 crores.
OnePlus says the contest is spread over four weeks with four time-limited events of five days each. The racers are allowed to play unlimited times to become the top-scorer in the month-long event.
