Real Racing 3 gaining cloud saves, Hunter game mode, new cars and 100+ events

If you’re a fan of free-to-play Real Racing 3 (which, by the way, looks absolutely stunning on the A6 and later devices, like the iPhone 5 and iPad 4), you’re in for a treat as Electronic Arts today announced an upcoming content update which will bring several new cars, a bunch of new challenges and events, a new game mode and cloud saves across all your devices.

As you can see from the above trailer for the Real Racing 3: Chevrolet Update, developer Firemonkeys is teasing at least two new cars, the Chevrolet Cobalt SS and the Camaro ZL1. I’ve included more tidbits right after the break…

According to a Facebook post, the upcoming update will also enable an all-new Hunter game mode, over a hundred new events and “many extra features and tweaks.”

Plus, you’ll be able to compare and compete with friends using the new statistics leaderboard.

I’m definitely looking forward to the Cloud Save functionality which will sync in-game progress across all devices so you could switch back and forth from your iPhone and iPad.

Unfortunately, Firemonkeys didn’t specify whether Cloud Save will work across platforms letting me play the game on my iPad and pick up right where I left off on Android, and vice versa.

Real Racing 3 is a free universal binary download from the App Store.

You can enhance your experience through in-game purchases, though it’s not like the game concept forces you to buy anything – I’ve been enjoying it without spending a dime on extras.

Firemonkeys says the update “will be available soon” via the App Store, Google Play and Amazon Appstore for Android.

I’ll admit it: the Camaro will be fun, but what about the Corvette?
