    Real Racing 3 received a major update today, adding both new content and performance enhancements to the popular freemium game. Players can now access Dodge and Shelby muscle cars and race in all new events.

    The game's difficulty has been slightly tweaked, to allow for faster and more accurate skill adjustments and visual physics enhancements offer up realistic pitch and bodyroll for classic muscle cars.

    Real Racing 3 marked EA's first foray into freemium pricing for a game series that was formerly offered at a set price. The pricing structure proved to be a success, and the game stayed on the top charts for multiple weeks. In July, the company revealed that Real Racing 3 has been downloaded 45 million times, averaging 2 million daily active users.

    EA has since followed up by introducing other high-profile freemium games including Plants vs. Zombies 2. EA announced yesterday that it would bring the freemium pricing model to its mobile FIFA titles as well.

    Real Racing 3 is a free app that can be downloaded from the App Store. [Direct Link]

    How much are the new cars? I stopped playing once I found out I need to spend $80 for a single super car.

    Meh was fun the first few times I played it but seemingly like all of the iOS racing games has zero replayability. Plus it's full of EA money grabbing crap.

    But what about Tesla?

    If a racing game wants to have real cars in it, I'm not interested unless it has cars in it that don't suck (and, to date, I'm unaware of any cars from any company besides Tesla that don't suck.)

    I would update the game, if only it were still installed. Developers keep note: People will delete your app/game if you send them 10 push notifications a day, reminding us to use/play your product.

    EA is dead to me due to this milking of the gamer's teat...AND I do buy IAP stuff in certain games - I'm just not cool with it being the standard like EA is making it.

    That's basically what I do. The only freemium game I played that doesn't do this is Clash of Clans. They send me messages pretaining to the gameplay, which I need, but they only send you 2 messages after 3 days and after 8 days of inactivity, then nothing more.

    That looks cool. I just wish they hadn't gone freemium.

    iOS only

    I would much rather play this on my Mac with a Cinema display than on my iPhone.

    Installed, played it a couple of days, then found out I basically needed to pay and keep paying all the way if I wanted to complete it. Deleted and have never even thought of playing it again

    They'd better add new race tracks. It's more important than new cars on the same (boring after some point) tracks.

    It's frowned upon, but when games are these are just aiming to get big money from customers, I just pirate the IAP. No way am I giving EA money for gold or in-game cash for an iOS app. I already buy their PC games.

    Wow, like you've never pirated anything. Spare me the moral lesson, unless you love spending $80 for a car - in that case, I'd be willing to accept your generous "donation" so I can progress in a video game in my so "very eventful life". :rolleyes:

    Still doesn't fix the cheating AI -- they will ram into you and not lose speed, or ram you off the road. And if you dare touch them while moving, you lose 30 mph and they go full speed ahead. And those stupid f**kers will brake on purpose in the middle of a corner even if they can get through full speed just to block you. It's infuriating!!

    With that said, I still like the game. For those that complain about paying, I've made it to "Performance Rumble" without paying a dime.

    It hurts me to say it but I found a non jail-brake hack for the game when it came out, in retaliation to EAs greediness. Oh look, you bought a new car - that'll be 10 coins to deliver now. What a load of BS! So now I have 100,000 gold coins and all original $80 super cars unlocked. I paid $10 for RR2 back in the day and was happy to do so again for RR3...

    Myself and my little boy (7) love RR3, have never paid a penny for it or any IAP and I won't either. I wouldn't have dropped $10 on the game had it been a paid for app.

    Well done EA for providing something free to us casual gamers :)

    I never liked the feel of real racing, hard to put it into words why but I just never enjoyed playing it.

    what happened to the good old beating the game track by track? I have gotten some nastily fast cars in this game without spending a penny.. The balance in this game between free and premium is very good in my opinion and it doesn't cripple the game like some other titles manage to do...

    But If you NEED to race with that Veyron straight away, then you should probably pay up, just as you do in real life...

    Anyways, seems like Detroit has found a way out of the red by selling itself via videogames.. Can't wait for the official 8Mile game...

    i've raced a few dozen races and earned $80,000 or so to buy a new car. haven't played it for a while

    spending real money or pirating the game is not that big of a priority to get ahead in the game. lots of other games out there i don't have time to play yet
