Real Racing Next: EA is conducting pre-alpha test for the next edition of its flagship mobile racing IP

Real Cars. Real Tracks. Real Time. Real Racing Next.

Firemonkeys Studios has launched the pre-alpha testing of Real Racing Next. In a QnA community post from EA, the developers answered some questions about this project. The game is currently available on Android devices in a pre-alpha version in two countries, Australia and Canada. The previous title, Real Racing 3 was released about nine years ago. Finally, the game is getting a new title in its line-up.

Overview of Real Racing Next

Real Racing Next, developed by Firemonkeys Studios and published by Electronic Arts, is a very early version of the next iteration of the global mobile racing hit Real Racing 3. In other words, the next title of the popular Real Racing series.

But EA’s started the game in a different way by quoting the following:

“We’ll explore what the next iteration of Real Racing will look like. We are not ready to announce a launch date for Real Racing Next as we are still in the early stages of development. The final game is a fair way off, but we want to start testing now as we begin this journey.”

They also mentioned that they are not ready for full-scale development.

However, we managed to watch some features of Real Racing Next from a Reddit post by a tester. It shows that the career is just a selection of different races that players can run any car in. The game shows the fastest lap and sector times on the end screen after each race. Besides, the pace of the game slowdowns while cutting a corner.

The progression system has changed as there are two progression trees, the season and the trophy tree in addition to sponsorship challenges. The game physics has changed in which players now have limits to their steering angle like actual cars do so they can’t do 180° turns on the spot anymore. The graphics looked astonishing though the game is in pre-alpha.

What will happen to Real Racing 3

For this question, EA said that Firemonkeys is committed to bringing players and fans all the great content they have come to expect from Real Racing 3. So, it is clear that Real Racing 3 is not going to retire soon rather it will keep entertaining the racing lovers, and pre-alpha is a continuity to its legacy.

Real Racing 3 just incorporated its v9.7 update a few days ago where two new racing legends were added for collection: The legendary 1962 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport and the five-time winner of the 24 Hours of Nürburgring, the BMW M3 (E30). The update includes three new cars, special events, new limited-time events, bonus series, new exclusive series, and so on.

How to participate in Real Racing Next Pre-Alpha testing

The early access version or the pre-alpha version of Real Racing Next will be exclusively available in Australia and Canada. The testing will run for a limited period. According to EA’s announcement, players from the respective two countries can simply head to their Google Play stores and search for Real Racing Next. It is available to play currently in both countries.

System requirements for Real Racing Next

The developers have set some minimum system requirements to play the game on mobile. It looks like not everyone will be able to play it because the minimum requirements need a high-end device. But, racing genre lovers around the world will surely be looking for this game to be made compatible with entry-level devices.

  • OS : Android 6.0 (API 23) or above
  • RAM : 2 GB
  • CPU : Snapdragon 830+, Exynos 8895+
  • GPU : Mali G71+, Adreno 540+

Finally, EA wanted honest feedback from the testers because the developers will be evolving the game and features based on the player feedback. Players can provide feedback from an in-game link. They also requested their fans to wait a little longer and focus on what is available now as they’ll soon bring some good pieces of news.
