Launched in 2013 and boasting over 250 cars and 20 real-world locations, Real Racing 3 is the award-winning franchise that set a new standard for mobile racing games. With the inclusion of Formula 1 on November 26 – available world-wide on iOS and Android platforms – the EA Firemonkeys team will deliver the single most requested piece of content by Real Racing players, kickstarting the next phase of Real Racing: Motorsports.
