Electronic Arts’ and Firemonkeys’ Real Racing 3 has amassed over a hundred million downloads across iOS and Android platforms thus far. Yet, up until today this premium game was not available as a native app for the new Apple TV—despite the fact that rival Gameloft’s Asphalt 8 is one of the most downloaded Apple TV games. A new update to the free-to-play racing game, now available in the App Store, changes all that with native support for the Apple TV.

What’s more, the Apple TV game gives players the ability to race each other in a split-screen ‘Party Play’ mode. In addition, this version of Real Racing 3 sports newly added Daytone 500 content across platforms so you can drive the NASCAR Sprint Cup cars and race your opponents on the all-new Daytona International Speedway track.

Game highlights include:

  • Experience the biggest motorsports event of the year. Race with the best and complete the DAYTON 500 to earn four iconic NASCAR stock cars
  • Race alongside legends like Joey Logano, Chase Elliott, Kevin Harvick, and Matt Kenneth, and drive your team to victory

  • Experience the prowess of the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento in a brand new special event, The Sixth Element.
  • Full game integration for Apple TV, including Party Play mode, diverse control options and cross-device Cloud Saves.

As mentioned, Real Racing 3 is a freemium download so expect in-game advertising and In-App Purchases.


Real Racing 3 requires an iPhone, iPod touch and iPad with iOS 7.0 or later and includes an Apple Watch app to activate your Team Driver to race events, collect rewards and progress your career.

The app is localized in English, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, Simplified Chinese, Spanish and Traditional Chinese.

    I want a full out Nascar game like this for iOS. I am hoping this is just step 1 and Real Racing adds more tracks in the future
