Well now, this is awkward. It would seem as though Real Racing 3‘s Time-Shifted Multiplayer is no longer the only way to compete against your friends. In this latest update, Firemonkeys has added the (apparently much-requested) ability for players to race against each other in real-time. Everything old is new again, huh?

It’s not just about putting the real-time back in Real Racing, though. Two new Supercars – the Lamborghini Veneno and the McLaren P1 – are joining the roster as well, along with the new Vertex event series, and a special holiday paint job for your Ford Focus RS. This timely and festive new update is available now.
