ground up as a free-to-play experience.
Real Racing 3 features hundreds of hours of gameplay, making it
one of the most robust mobile games available to date. All ofthe
game’s content is available for free without players needing to pay to

“With Real Racing 3’s console-quality graphics, realistic
gameplay and unparalleled depth of content, the Real Racing franchise
is once again raising the bar for mobile games,” said Nick Earl, Senior
Vice President & General Manager EA All Play Label. “By developing Real
Racing 3 to be a freemium title, we’ve removed the barrier of entry,
thereby expanding the game’s audience and making it easier to find
multiplayer opponents, as well as giving players the freedom to enjoy
the game when and how they want.”
The ability to play against friends whenever and wherever is key to one
of Real Racing 3’s new features, Time Shifted Multiplayer™ (TSM).
This new mode of competitive multiplayer allows players to race against
their friends, even if they have different devices or if they’re offline.
“Real Racing 3 is the best in the series, sporting some of the
most advanced multiplayer technology in the industry today,” said Tony
Lay, GM of the Firemonkeys. “Time Shifted Multiplayer adapts everyone’s
racing styles to competing cars on the track using leaderboards and
previous times to emulate how they’d drive those courses. Now everyone
will be able to battle against each other for bragging rights on the
track anytime, anywhere in a more realistic manner.”
