Real Racing 3 to Be Supported by in-Game Purchases

If you're a fan of mobile gaming, and like cars or racing games you are probably already familiar with Real Racing from EA. The Real Racing franchise already has two titles in the history books with the most recent being Real Racing 2, which currently sells on the iPhone for $4.99. EA announced this week that the next version of the game will be called Real Racing 3 and will launch on February 28.

The game will be available for iPhone, iPad, and Android users on the same day. The big change in this version of the game is that it will be free to play. Naturally, the game will have a number of in-game purchases that will cost real money to make your playing experience better.

This is the first game in the franchise that you haven't had to purchase upfront to play. The downside to the freemium push for mobile games is that they can actually cost you more to unlock games and features than you would've paid if the game was simply a purchase upfront title. How much the in-game purchases will cost and what you will need to purchase to play remain to be seen.
