The lights are on
Slightly Mad Studios knows its way around the track. The latest game from the Need for Speed: Shift developers is an ambitious PC MMO racing game appropriately called World of Speed. The studio has released a trailer for the game and a batch of screens showing its impressive attention to detail.
“At the heart of World of Speed lies a unique massive multiplayer online experience, which incorporates dynamic social elements and entirely new ways to compete in a racing video game – from an individual to a team level,” says Ian Bell, CEO of Slightly Mad Studios. “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.”
As you can see from the trailer and screens, players will tear up the street in areas as varied as London, San Francisco, and Moscow.
The game, which is being published by My.com, will be free to play when it arrives this spring.

This looks awesome. Can't wait to play it!
This looks incredible. The attention to detail is very impressive. I'm very interested in trying this game out when it launches. :)
I thought they were working on project cars?
Those are some fine looking cars.
Why don't they release this on the PS4? The PS4 could do those graphics like a breeze.
it looks like we are finally at that moment where everyone can create a racing game that looks realistic. This leads to gamelplay ideas and driving feel coming to the forefront to distinguish each game. I'm a big racing games fan and am looking forward to what next gen will bring now that graphics are not a defining feature.
I hope this doesn't take talent away from Project Cars. It's not even in beta yet.
I hope it's realistic, I'd really like a realistic racing MMO. I think it could be really cool
