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.
