Real Racing 3 will be available on Feb. 28 for iOS, Android and Kindle, developer Firemonkeys announced.

Shockingly, the game will be free. The visually stunning mobile franchise is making the shift to free-to-play with its latest installment. Currently, Real Racing 2 is still priced at $4.99 on the iTunes App Store.

As is the case with most free-to-play titles, Real Racing 3 offers in-game purchases for additional levels and power-ups. Although purchasing content will allow players to unlock features, gamers who do not make any purchases can still unlock all additional content over time.

At launch, Real Racing 3 will feature 46 licensed vehicles in three classes, a 22 car grid, real world tracks, eight varied event types and more than 900 events. That equates to hours of potential gameplay at no charge to players.

Firemonkeys also said the company plans to continue their support of the game with more free content in future updates.

Real Racing 3 introduces the new Time-Shifted Multiplayer mode. The game mode allows players to race against friends even if they are not online. If a friend has ran the selected track, players can take on an A.I. ghost of their car, which performs the same run the friend previously did.

EA, the game’s producer, has an interest in exploring the freemium games strategy. The company believes that is the future of the industry, so it should come as no surprise EA is already experimenting with free-to-play mobile games. The strategy has already proven to be a success for EA with the popular mobile game, The Simpsons: Tapped Out.

The console-quality mobile racing sim was originally announced in August of last year. Finally, fans have a firm release date for Real Racing 3. Despite the delayed release date, the price (or lack thereof) has to be a pleasant surprise.
