Real Racing 3, released on AND and iOS, is the third installment of one of the most popular mobile racing series launched in 2009 by Firemint. The game was developed by Firemonkeys studio, created as a result of the merger of Firemint and Iron Monkeys teams, which resulted from the acquisition of both teams by Electronic Arts. The studio has also worked on successful mobile conversions of the last installments of the Need for Speed series.

Game modes

The game allows us to take part in an impressive number of over 2,000 racing challenges, including classic cup races, time trials, one-on-one rivalry, and drag races, as well as more sophisticated fun variants such as Elimination, Autocross, Speed Record, Speed Snap and Hunter. The authors reproduced 12 authentic race tracks, including Silverstone, Hockenheim, Le Mans, Laguna Seca and Dubai Autodrome, which can be traversed in several different configurations. The game offers a large range of nearly 100 licensed cars from brands such as Ferrari, Porsche, Chevrolet, Lamborghini, Mercedes-Benz, Bugatti, Ford, Aston Martin, McLaren, Koenigsegg or Pagani. Our machines can be additionally modified by equipping them with special painting, stickers or rims.

The game uses an interesting variant of asynchronous multi-player competition, described by the creators as Time Shifted Multiplayer (TSM). In this mode, we do not race against live opponents, but against the "ghosts" of other drivers, generated based on their rides. Unlike classic ghost races, we can interact with them, for example by pushing the opponent off the track.

Technical aspects

The distinguishing feature of Real Racing 3 is a realistic driving model and a graphic design based on an original Mint 3 engine. The title also works with older models of smartphones and tablets, but in order to fully enjoy the quality of graphics (detailed car models, rear-view mirrors or dynamic reflections), we will need really powerful equipment. For the first time in the history of the series, the game is available in a free-to-play model, which resulted in an extensive microtransaction system, thanks to which we can unlock additional vehicles, tracks and races, as well as repair damage without waiting.
