Fasten your seatbelts: World of Speed is headed your way before the end of the year. The free-to-play, massively multiplayer online arcade racer is currently in development at Slightly Mad Studios, the team behind Need For Speed Shift.
Ian Bell, Chief Executive Officer of Slightly Mad Studios explains:
At the heart of World of Speed lies a unique massive multiplayer online experience which incorporates a dynamic social elements and entirely new ways to compete in a racing video game – from an individual to a team level. World of Speed is an online game and will be continuously supported with innovative and fresh content to keep the competition furious well after its launch.
Whether you want a virtual version of your daily drive or one of the fastest super-cars on four wheels, an endless garage has been packed into World of Speed – including some of the most iconic vehicles we’ve seen throughout history.
…and it’s only fitting then that they’re able to race on an assortment of tracks: Take your pick from true-to-life venues that you can find across the globe or perhaps the sort of crazy track “only a speed freak could dream up”.
We’re also promised real-time interactive social gameplay, live events, player challenges, new gameplay modes, and a list of tracks and cars kept freshly updated.
If your toes are already twitching in anticipation of putting the pedal to the metal, you won’t have to wait long. World of Speed is set to race into closed beta in the next six months or so – and if you want to get in on the action nice and early, head to www.worldofspeed.com and sign on the dotted line.
