Real Racing 3 Updated to Add Chevrolet Cars, New Events, and Cloud Save Functionality

Thursday April 11, 2013 9:57 AM PDT by Juli Clover
Real Racing 3 received its first major update today, adding two new cars from Chevrolet, including the Cobalt SS and the Camaro ZL1. Players will also find 100 new events, along with a new event type called Hunter Chase.

In Hunter Chase, the idea is to chase down a target car and overtake it within a single lap. With the additional events, Real Racing 3 now offers players more than 1,000 total events.

Most importantly, this update brings Cloud Save functionality, allowing players the option to transfer save data between multiple devices, a feature that was noticeably missing at release. There are a few other minor additions to the game, like new social features, an improved tutorial, and performance optimizations.
-New manufacturer – Chevrolet! The Cobalt SS and the Camaro ZL1 join the lineup
-New event type – Hunter! Chase down the hunted car and overtake within one lap
–100+ new events! Total number of events now exceeds 1,000!
-Cloud Save functionality! Transfer your save data between devices
-New social features! See who is online and compare how your friends are doing with the statistics leaderboard
-Check your TSM mailbox for the latest friend notifications
-Improved tutorial and main menu
-Numerous additional improvements, fixes, and performance optimizations
Despite a controversial release due to its freemium gameplay, Real Racing 3 has proven to be a popular title. It is still ranked as the number one racing game in the App Store and remains in the top 20 free games list.

I can't stand the freemium concept either, but I must say, I've logged a few hrs into this game and haven't spend one cent on it. If you have the patience to "service" you car and wait for your upgrades to get "installed" you will enjoy this. You basically play in small doses, so to speak, if you have the patience; and once you start getting more cars you can play for longer periods, if that's your thing. Highly recommend it as it's very addicting and the graphics are a thing of beauty.

Buy this new car for $.99*.

*Engine, shocks, wheels (sold per wheel), windows, body, paint, any other car parts sold separately.

I refuse to play this game because:
1. It is owned by EA.
2. Game is riddled with ridiculous in-app purchase options.

It's still owned by EA and I refuse to give them any money after SimCity.

I play it when I have the odd few minutes to spare. I'm still fairly low down the ranks but it's just the technical brilliance of the game that keeps me playing it - for a device like the iPad, it's killer! But I refuse to do the in-app purchase thing so as ling as I'm getting some enjoyment out of it and it's free, I'm good with it... As for the EA thing - Satan could have made it for all I care.

I don't understand all the complaining. No one is forced to spend money and it's a real solid game.

And once you have multiple cars, waiting for a car to be serviced ain't that big of a deal. And since I'm not one to game for hours on end, I appreciate the forced breaks it gives you. :D

Be careful if you choose to update. Those that have hacked the game and have $2+ billion dollars may lose the hacking feature cause of the update. Is a new car and a few little extras worth playing for hours just to buy a car that cost $350,000? It's not worth it. :D

How about a Real Racing 2 mode?

I would like that option too. It doesn't feel the same when it is not a true live--as in realtime--opponent.

I've been playing for a while too and haven't paid a cent. But I must admit the part about loooong waits for more expensive cars is frustrating sometimes. Also, I wish one could make more money from certain events. Cups are great and all but some of them require a fully upgraded car and that's just plain expensive.

Also, the update screwed up some event names. Event types have disappeared in certain races and now I have to guess if I'm going in for a drag race or a full blown cup. I hope they fix it soon.

Last but not least - they added a freakin' Cobalt? Are they insane? They should've added the Corvette! And what happened to STi/Evo and tons of other cars more worthy than Cobalt? What's next, Dodge Caliber?

No need for jailbreaking/hacking. Go offline, and in settings, set time to "manual", and change the time forward as convenient. Go back into the game. Done. When done playing, put the time settings in automatic again.
