Real Racing 3 update brings massive overhaul: new career progression, time trial mode and new cars

July 2, 2013

    Real Racing 3

    The popular Real Racing 3 game has received a new update, which brings major changes, both when it comes to new features but also to the user interface.

    When looking at the changelog, you’ll think that this is another “regular” Real Racing 3 update that brings new cars to race on new tracks, but that’s not so. Firemonkeys has completely updated the user interface of the app, basically offering a new career progression system and a better way of managing cars.

    Over 180 events have been included in the update, and there are two new manufacturers to choose cars from including Bentley and Mercedes-Benz.

    The company has introduced a new race mode, Time Trial, which will let you race against competitors from all over the world – the fastest time takes the cake. The new mode uses a new currency called Drive. Without Drives, you won’t be able to enter Time Trial races – Drive accumulates in time, or you can always purchase it with Gold, which, in turn, can be purchased from the Store.

    In other words, yes, in-app purchases are still strongly pushed by the game maker, although you can still play Real Racing 3 without buying anything.

    Other tidbits include the new Clean Race mode (you get bonuses when not crashing your car into opponents during races) and Daily Race Bonuses (the more you play, the more cash bonuses you get inside the game).

    You can also expect improved graphics once you update to the new version of the game.

      middle finger firmly pointed towards any of these in-app games. not going to touch this at all. hope these studios burn in hell and with massive losses.

      what was wrong with paying for games outright ?

        this time i am seriously with you about in-app.

          Well, i don’t know if i can agree with you guys, cos i’ve notice if you’re good, and practice enough, you can still move up to the top. But if you don’t have patients and need to buy your way to the top, that’s not fun

            the game is not it should be ,like i can race whenever i want to and have all cars just by racing no waiting time , just play for fun ,but in-app has ruined it badly.

              IDK if we’ve played the same game… But I won all the cars in “Real Racing 2″, without spending a cent. The more you play or practice the more money you win… I’ve spent money on in-app stores, mostly “Golf Games”, but then again, that’s up to the individual.

              I am not saying about the practice i am saying that all fun is gone due to in-app. this game gives frustration where as real racing 2 was fun of joy. ask any gamer you will get the answer.

              the whole point of in-app purchase is making the gamer work extra harder, bordering on frustration and absolutely not wanting to play the game – and then give him an option of getting it all easily at a small cost at every stage, and eventually (maybe) costing hundreds of dollars (say in case of kids playing it).

        There’s nothing wrong with in-app purchases or freemium games, it’s all about how the company treats freemium. If this title focused on microtransactions instead of larger purchases required to compete it would have went down as the best racing game of all-time for mobile. Unfortunately they dropped the ball and let a lot of potential go to waste.
