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.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
