“Real Racing 3” features hundreds of hours of gameplay, making it one of the most robust mobile games available to date. All of the game’s content is available for free without players needing to pay to progress. In-game monetization will enable players to accelerate their experience and speed up car servicing and upgrade wait times by spending virtual currency, which can either be purchased or earned through racing events, leveling-up, obtaining trophies and competing with friends.

With Real Racing 3’s console-quality graphics, realistic gameplay and unparalleled depth of content, the Real Racing franchise is once again raising the bar for mobile games,” said Nick Earl, Senior Vice President & General Manager of EA All Play Label. “By developing Real Racing 3 to be a freemium title, we’ve removed the barrier of entry, thereby expanding the game’s audience and making it easier to find multiplayer opponents, as well as giving players the freedom to enjoy the game when and how they want”.

The ability to play against friends whenever and wherever is key to one of Real Racing 3’s new features, Time Shifted Multiplayer™ (TSM). This new mode of competitive multiplayer allows players to race against their friends, even if they have different devices or if they’re offline.

Real Racing 3 is the best in the series, sporting some of the most advanced multiplayer technology in the industry today,” said Tony Lay, GM of Firemonkeys. “Time Shifted Multiplayer adapts to everyone’s racing style using leaderboards and their previous race times to emulate how they would drive those courses. Now players will be able to battle against each other for bragging rights on the track, anytime, anywhere in a more realistic manner”.

Praised for its console-quality graphics, “Real Racing 3” displays dynamic reflections, persistent car damage and fully functioning rear view mirrors in real time to enhance the realism of the race day experience.  Game features include:
