Firemonkeys, the new combined studio from EA combining the IronMonkey and Firemint gaming studios, has announced the development of Real Racing 3 for iPhone and iPad. Real Racing and Real Racing 2 have been widely viewed as some of the most cutting edge iOS games available.

NewImage
Real Racing 2 was one of the first games to support 1080p output on the iPad 2 and the first game to take advantage of the speed of the iPhone 4S.


Real Racing 3 will be the first game in the franchise to have real racecourses and will allow 22 cars to race simultaneously. No system requirements have been released yet.

The game is expected to be released later this year.

FireMonkeys is a very unprofessional sounding name. Bleh.

Combine that with the awful dubstep music in the trailer (I guess that crap has to be everywhere now). Gross.

Game however looks pretty! Yay!

Game studios often have non professional sounding names. That is just the nature of the business....
Rockstar Games
Spicy Horse
Sky Monkey Studios
Supervillian studios
Double Fine
Naughty Dog

Just to name a few. :D

There is so much love for the Real Racing titles @ MacRumors and the sister site touchArcade.com. Maybe it's even worth mentioning that the Mac version of Real Racing 2 (AppShopper link (http://appshopper.com/mac/games/real-racing-2)) is one of the few games already fit for the brand new MacBook Pro Retina display (updated a few days ago for native 2880x1800 resolution). Watch the app activity. Maybe I'll buy it when it's down to five bucks again (I've put it on my AppShopper wishlist).

But MR & tA are completely ignoring the better racing game. It's the new and excellent Asphalt 7: Heat by Gameloft (AppShopper link (http://appshopper.com/games/asphalt-7-heat)). It's more an arcade racer than RR (being more a simulator). For some friends and me it's simply the best video game of all time and of all consumer software platforms (last but not least because of the advanced local multiplayer options).

In A7 you have the best super cars, the prettiest and most exotic tracks, the highest speed feeling, awesome jumps and the most exciting action. You don't drive on flavorless racing tracks but on public streets in real cities during the urban rush hour. You drive through water in a river bed (Los Angeles). There are hidden shortcuts to explore in Miami. Have a trippy groundflight through New York, Havannah, Hawaii, London, Nassau, New Orleans (now better weather conditions as in Asphalt 6/2010, night race), Paris, Rio and other places.

Don't miss the YouTube videos: Launch Trailer (//www.youtube.com/watch?v=T4ddN9BcIik), Trailer (//www.youtube.com/watch?v=jAzdxY_MxyI), German-language preview (//www.youtube.com/watch?v=HgwxjTn90_Y), Gameloft interviews the game designer (//www.youtube.com/watch?v=V_o-jaCjKiA).

Most visually stunning! (Download high-res screenshot (http://www.idow.ru/uploads/posts/2012-06/1339025999_13.png).)

The game mechanics (controls, gameplay, career mode) are superb! The difficulty is very well balanced (one of the BIG flaws in Real Racing 2 when we last played it). Really challenging in the later leagues. We are playing A7 for hours, days and weeks. Literally. Two friends bought an iPad 3 because they saw and wanted Asphalt 7.

And no, I am not the developer, and I am not affiliated with Gameloft in any way. But I tested and reviewed about 6,000 iOS games and own other hardware consoles (I have ALL the high quality racers). Just saying: Asphalt 7 is the best game for action fans. Period.

Prove my statement. Try it, it's only $.99 (unbelievable price I know, it's a steal). File size after install: 1.4 GB (never regretted one byte). There are "In-App Purchases" for real money but they are completely optional, you won't need them at all to finish the game.

Have a list of the cars here (http://forums.toucharcade.com/showpost.php?p=2309162&postcount=180).

touchArcade—a site where I am a regular in the forums and believe it's a very good site otherways—didn't even mention or publish a short editor's review of Asphalt 7: Heat until now. :-( There is only an unmoderated thread (http://forums.toucharcade.com/showthread.php?t=140859) in the forum that's almost ruined by a troll. Something I really don't understand. "Keeping you in touch with the latest in iOS gaming" but they are ¡¡¡completely missing the best part of iOS gaming!!!

Don't get me wrong. Real Racing is not bad, it's technically up to date and looks pretty. But compared to the Asphalt series it's just boring.

Meet somebody with an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch and enjoy some A7 local multiplayer races via Bluetooth. Via WiFi you can even add a Mac (Asphalt 6: Adrenaline) to multiplayer! This was introduced in the most recent Apple event as "a new Mountain Lion feature via Game Center" but with Asphalt 6: Adrenaline it works since a couple of months, Mr. Cook! (To be exactly: Since more than a year. Learn something about the Apple devices!)

"Hope you like to get high", the lady says on introducing the snowy and sun flooded Chamonix track in A6. :cool:

Endless replay fun. Always new situations. Fight on the sofa. That's PURE iOS power believe me, much more fun than all that online stuff! Let those Android devices look even older than usual (there is Asphalt for Android but no local bluetooth multiplayer and only low res). A complete new gaming experience, a real social event. Feels a lot more direct and natural than those classic console multiplayer modes with their crappy split screen display on a distant monitor and a bunch of cables.

BTW 1080p video out via HDMI adapter or AirPlay/Apple TV is a technically interesting feature and works fine with RR and Asphalt (tested with Apple TV 2, 720p)—but it's completely useless for racer fans if you ask me. It's TEN times better to have this sophisticated steering wheel/wind shield combination just in front of your nose (with retina resolution) than looking on a distant monitor with split screen (if local multiplayer). Without ANY cable. Very Applesque. Very elegant.

The iOS devices don't have the need for being "console-like", they are better anyway. At least for action and racer games like Asphalt 7: Heat.

And now: Burn the street!

It's great to see gamelofts CEO posting on this site. Welcome. Smfh.

Meh. Any 3D game sucks on touchscreen devices.

Give me a controller and zero AirPlay latency though......
