Real Racing 3 Update Brings Split-Screen Multiplayer to Apple TV

by

Popular free-to-play iOS racing game Real Racing 3 has received an update which includes a new "Daytona Experience" race pack and enhanced integration with Apple TV.

The Daytona Experience features iconic 700-horsepower NASCAR Spring Cup Series cars and the opportunity to take part in Daytona 500, the most prestigious race in the NASCAR calendar.

From February 16 through March 4, players can compete in the Daytona 500 event on the new Daytona International Speedway track in a bid to unlock four NASCAR Sprint Cup Series stock cars. The pack also offers the opportunity to choose from a selection of authentic race teams and drive alongside legends of the sport.


In addition, the update builds upon Real Racing 3's cloud-based Apple TV integration by enabling players to compete side-by-side against each other in a new split-screen mode called Party Play.

The update also brings a new event to proceedings called The Sixth Element, which allows players to take the wheel of the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento.

Real Racing 3 is a free download for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad available from the App Store. [Direct Link]

You don't like it, got it.

Nothing wrong with good freemium apps. The need for speed one is timer based too but an awesome game

I have a love/hate relationship with this game. First off the gameplay, graphics and amount of content are stunning for a mobile game. It is genuinely fun to play.
Unfortunately they won't let me pay them. I want to give them a big chunk of money for a premium version. I would pay more for this than any other game in the App Store.
But under no circumstance will I pay for consumable currency. I'm not always against IAP. In fact I feel that RR3 would be fine with content packs. I just don't find paying for progress to be engaging or fun.

It's not a good freemium app:

- Framerate is awful
- menus are bad
- shows Siri remote controls even if you're using a MFi controller.
