We're hoping that you've been practicing your drifting this holiday season because there's a new Need for Speed racing onto mobile devices.
Electronic Arts and Firemonkeys have just updated their free-to-play racing powerhouse Real Racing 3 and it's a big one. In addition to some functionality tweaks and updates, the most notable change is the addition of a host of Chevrolet vehicles.
Ollie Browne, Adrian Moore, and Joshua Boggs all left Firemonkeys (back when it was called Firemint) to form a new game studio -- Loveshack Entertainment. Their first game will be titled Framed and they just released a teaser trailer of some concepts they are working on for the title. And you know what? It looks good!
Real Racing 3 should just marry my iPad, since it's the only game my device will see for the next several weeks. The title has been receiving its share of knocks from reviewers who are maddeningly frustrated due to its freemium model. Hours into Real Racing 3, and the game has yet to cost me a dime. All you need, as Axl Rose once whined, is just a little patience.
In the real world, the Koenigsegg Agera R (which sounds like a space alien and looks like a car version of the Portal gun), is a vehicle that costs over $2 million dollars. But in the world of Real Racing 3, you can have it for much, much less. But there's a catch. Click through to see how much it will cost you!
Earlier this week, we learned that Real Racing 3 would hit iOS and Android at the end of the month. But we didn't know that EA and Firemonkeys had an early "soft launch" Valentine prepared for the good people of Australia and New Zealand. The racing sim that everybody wants to play is now available in those App Stores, with a copy in Canada due tomorrow.
