While the App Store is home to MANY racing games, there aren’t a whole lot of options for specifically rally racing games. And of the ones that were out there, none were much more than just OK. But back in mid-2016 developer Brownmonster changed all that when they released the hands-down best rally racing game on the App Store Rush Rally 2 ($0.99). It offered an incredible amount of content, multiple game modes, tons of different tracks and vehicles, and overall was just a stunningly complete package. Most importantly though is that Rush Rally 2 nailed the physics of rally racing, and straddled the line between arcade and simulation perfectly so it was still highly approachable without being unrealistic. We absolutely loved it in our review and I can hardly believe it’s been almost three years since Rush Rally 2 released. In October of last year we learned that Brownmonster was working on a third game in the series and was kicking off a beta test for it, and today we now know when Rush Rally 3 will finally be arriving: March 29th. Here’s some new screens!
According to Brownmonster, the beta last fall went extremely well, and in fact the testers came up with so many cool ideas for the game that they ended up pushing the game back from its intended Christmas release date so that they could implement everything into the game. Rush Rally 2 owners no doubt remember how well-supported that game was, with near constant updates after its release adding in all sorts of cool new content and features. Rush Rally 3 will benefit from all of that right out of the gate and will feature a new Career mode, a Single Rally mode, a Rally Cross mode where you can race against other vehicles, and real-time online multiplayer. There are also more than 72 new stages to race with multiple driving surfaces to take into account that will greatly affect how your vehicle handles. There will also be the full suite of vehicle upgrading and customization options. All this is said to run at a rock solid 60 frames per second. Finally, there will be fully customizable controls with both touch and tilt options and the game will support MFi controllers. Basically, everything great about Rush Rally 2 but bigger and better in every way. What’s not to love? Expect a new trailer sometime next week, and mark your calendar for Rush Rally 3 hitting the App Store at the end of this month.
