Real Racing 3 Launches Evolution of Jaguar Car Pack
Do you have what it takes to win a (virtual) 1963 Jaguar E-Type Lightweight?by Kirby Garlitos, on
It may not be as powerful or as detailed as the Gran Turismo or Forza Motorsports video game franchises, but mobile racing simulator Real Racing 3 also has its share of fans and gamers alike. Now, those people have been rewarded with a new update package that can unlock three of the most prized Jaguars of all time. There is one catch though. The cars won’t be available as soon as the update is downloaded. If gamers want to get them, they’re going to have to compete for them.
The package is called Evolution of Jaguar, a fitting name for an update that can yield a gamer the 1963 Jaguar E-Type Lightweight, the Jaguar XJ220, and the Jaguar F-Type SVR. Each of the three models will be available as rewards of three Jaguar Legacy events that are also part of the update. The first of these events, Jaguar Legacy: Part 1, kicks off today, August, 9, and will be followed by Parts 2 and 3 in the coming days and weeks. The three events make up the six real-time racing events included in the update, each having a window from anywhere between four to nine days. All the players need to do is to win these events for the chance to take home the classic Jags.
In addition to the Jaguars that are up for grabs, the update also includes events wherein the prizes include the Dodge Challenger Hellcat and the Mercedes SLS GT3, complete with a new livery kit. Capping off this rather eventful update is the eight season of the Gauntlet challenge, which begins on September 10. Players who compete in this event have the chance to win a 2016 Porsche 911 Carrera S.
All told, that’s six cars that players of Real Racing 3 can add to their virtual garages. They’re going to have to work for hard for all of them and if they think they’re up to the task, they can start downloading the Evolution of Jaguar pack as a free download through the Apple App Store, Amazon App Store, and Google Play.

Why it matters
I don’t often find myself having time to play video games these days, but when I do, I make sure that I’m up to date with what’s going on in that world, especially when it comes to car racing games. Sadly, I may not be able to take in Real Racing’s Evolution of Jaguar pack because I don’t have enough time to immerse myself in trying to score those rare Jags for my RR3 garage. That doesn’t mean I’m not going to try because that E-Type Lightweight looks mighty fine to drive.
Don’t be like me though. If you can spare the time, go ahead and get your fill of this package. Enter all the challenges and try to get all six cars that are being made available. While you’re at it, try to score the SLS GT3 too, even though the livery is the only thing that looks different from the version that’s already in the game. The Dodge Challenger Hellcat and the Porsche 911 Carrera S are also must-haves in any virtual garage so get them too. And of course, let’s not get sideways into thinking that we can just leave out the Jaguar F-Type SVR and the Jaguar XJ220.
Overall, the Evolution of Jaguar pack is arguably one of the better packs to come out for Real Racing 3. The manner by which gamers can get them ought to be challenging, but the rewards that come after make all those hours draining the batteries of those mobile devices ought to be worth the time and the sore thumbs.
