Real Racing 3 hits Android with freemium model

If you’ve been waiting on EA’s Real Racing 3, today’s the day you can get it… and for free, no less. It’s one of the most expansive racing titles on Android yet, with over 45 cards from the likes of Porsche and Lamborghini to hit the tarmac with. You can race in over 900 events, and races can have up to 22 different participants at the same time.

Is there a catch? Of course there’s a catch! You’re going to be asked to cough up some dough for some of the more “premium” features the game has to offer, but it should be playable even if you don’t want to spend a dime. Basically, you’re going to get out of it what you put into it, and that’s what the freemium model is all about. Give it a go in the Google Play Store.

    Can’t wait to divorce my wife.. At that point, no more of my money will be sunk into in game purchases. Give me a flat free…5, 10, 15 … Whatever… But tired of the nickel and dime.

    Freemiums are fine until you spend over $5-$7 worth of stuff and still need to buy more stuff to finish it.

    Mobile apps aren’t big enough to be freemiums. PC games makes sense. I understand freemiums there. I mean there is a lot of time and effort in MMOs, but this? No. I don’t think so. I won’t be playing this game 25/8.

    The only way I’d accept this is if you can win races and still get that stuff at a fair rate. For example Fun Run is retarded. You get like 3-15 coins a race and things cost 400+. That’s ridiculous. I hate that.

    Babel Rising 3D fixed things up and give you a reasonable amount of money, or they’re upgrades are cheap to buy. That’s how a freemium should be.

    just for that I’m not downloading it…. I can’t stand freemium games

  • Eric James Salcido

    I wish they would just use the “additional file” from Google for their extra 1.7GB of content. Their download is so slow right now and only Google gives me the ability to use my 5000KB/s connection to it’s max potential.

    Not only do you spend money on the cars, you spend money on repairs, delivery time and basically everything… this is so dang sad.
