EuropaCorp Promotes The Transporter Refueled With Native Ads in Gameloft's Asphalt 8: Airborne Mobile Game

EuropaCorp and Gameloft have partnered on the international campaign to promote the September 4th release of The Transporter Refueled within the Asphalt 8: Airborne mobile racing game. The native advertising campaign takes place in the US, UK, France, and Middle East, and features racing tournaments titled The Transporter Refueled Cup. In the United States, the latest edition of the tournament starts today September 2nd and continues through Sunday.

"Within the gaming environment, we were able to offer EuropaCorp a Monaco location and an Audi sports car, which also feature in the movie. Thus, it was a natural partnership," says Sylvain Baudry, Gameloft's Head of Advertising in the United States. "The synergy between Asphalt 8: Airborne and The Transporter Refueled creates a truly unique and engaging ad campaign. Gamers are interacting with the brand for almost two minutes," says Baudry.

Participants in the tournaments have the chance to win a variety of in-game prizes that help further progress in the game. In addition to native advertising, the integrated campaign features movie trailers and full screen ads across a selection of Gameloft's games. Gameloft is also promoting the tournament across its social media channels and website. "The seamless integration of The Transporter Refueled into the Asphalt 8: Airborne mobile game is a distinctive experience we are thrilled to partner on. The game allows us to introduce the Transporter franchise to the next generation of thrill-seekers," says Tommy Gargotta of EuropaCorp.

Gameloft was the worldwide #1 game publishing company by downloads on iOS and Google Play combined for H1 of 2015 according to App Annie. Asphalt 8: Airborne won the GSMA's Best Mobile Game App of 2015.
