EA isn't letting its mega mobile racing franchise stagnate. The latest update to Real Racing 3 is version 1.3, adding iconic muscle cars from Dodge and Shelby. Four cars have been added to the roster: the 1969 Dodge Charger RT, 1971 Dodge Challenger RT, 1966 Shelby AC Cobra 427 (I think - going by a screenshot and some Wikipedia sleuthing), and the 1967 Mustang Cobra GT500.

According to the What's New text, there are also new events, new difficulty settings, tweaks to car physics and cameras, and "additional social networking options." Posters on the FireMonkeys developer forum say that means Google+ integration, as a G+ sign-in option has been added to the Settings page.

The rest of the game remains intact, time-based IAP upsell and all. It's still free to play, though you'll need to spend a lot of time getting in-game credits (including the exceedingly rare gold coins) if you want to unlock the new muscle cars without spending real money. Real Racing 3 is compatible with most newer devices running 2.3 and up. International readers, note the separate Google Play Store listing.

An iconic generation of cars joins Real Racing 3’s diverse garage, with the introduction of timeless classics from Dodge and Shelby.

    G+ integration and it now has one big progress bars instead of hundreds of obnoxious little ones with no indication of when it'll all end. Looks like I can start playing this again.

    The update stinks. The game is good at the beginning but quickly becomes a roadblock that pushes the player to make expensive in app purchases. I have played since it was released, it was a good game, but I deleted the game today.

    Electronic Arts and the Firemonkeys game designers should be ashamed of themselves for this blatant money-grab.

      You can use cheat programs if you are rooted....

      I only advocate them for games that are blantant iap money grab games that take advantage (asphalt 7 did that, good game, bad iap design). This one, at least the little I have played, is pretty good (will have to see as I get farther)

        You cannot cheat the money on this game, the money is synced to the server.

        • Alan Shearer

          Does it support cloud saves? I have yet to require an internet connection while playing on my wifi only tablet with wifi off. Not rooted though, so cannot cheat, but if I never connected it to the internet while in game, how can my currency be synced to anything? Course just barely finishing the stock car challenge, just starting the fun :P

          I highly doubt that or it would require an internet connection to play like simpsons tapped out does (and even that one has confirmed to be cheatable)

          That's strange, when i had my iPhone 4 before I sold it - I was able to get free IAP through jailbreak.

          Bought all cars and had free upgrades/repairs all day err' day.

  • rmagruder

    Terrible graphics on the new Nexus 7, even when manually overriding the graphics files. EA should be ashamed. I don't want more cars. I want the game to deliver on its original hype.

    • Kevin Aaronson

      Yeah, looks like total shit. Hopefully they update, but I ain't holding my breath.

  • David Margolin

    too bad airborne comes out 2morrow :)

    • Davis Hernandez

      airborne its more unrealistic than a 3 dollar coin

  • Maniac

    I would play this game if it had support for Shield controls...

  • เกรียนเทพ ดี อันลิมิเตด

    After the update, I can't even start the game on Note 8.0.

  • cesar suarez

    luckily I have the data to the application and need not be so stupid to pay something in the game haha

  • Primalxconvoy

    I haven't updated since the first time, as I'm wary of comments stating that EA's updates tend to wipe saved games.

    Also; no gamepad support, eh EA, you lazy bums.

    • Daniel DS

      That's not possible, the game is saved to the cloud

      • Primalxconvoy

        Perhaps they are referring to how the cloud data interacts with their phones? All I know is that whenever I see updates to ea games, there are usually reviews stating that a user can't access their saved game.

        • Vule

          You also have internal saved data and you can backup it

  • sandish

    has anyone else lost the garage icon in the game or its just me?

  • Angmancy

    Music off. SFX sound full. Sixaxis contoller paired. ready to burn some muscle rubber!!!

  • Sven L.

    By far the game with the most time invested in without paying a penny. Got well over 30 hours.

  • Rana

    I love the new update. Got over forty hours of play on my note 3.
