World Of Speed Seems To Be The MMO Of Driver’s Dreams
Slightly Mad Studios have been making a pretty good name for themselves recently with their incredible gorgeous racing simulator, Project CARS. But that’s not what the studio is talking about today. Instead, they’re revealing a brand new racing title, one that will create a massive online world for players to continually get lost in.
Introducing World of Speed, a free-to-play racing MMO that is set for a PC release later this year. World of Speed is said to feature an “endless garage”, one which developers will continually update throughout this life of this title. The MMO will feature a host of locations from around the world for players to speed through, as well as team based modes and live events hosted by Slightly Mad.

But the real question here is how the game will handle the free-to-play model, and it’s hear that World of Speed doesn’t sound too bad. Creative director Andy Tudor told Gamespot in an interview that no content will be put behind a paywall, and that the game will not give those paying with real money an in-game advantage. So, it’s sounding like only cosmetic items will force you to fork out here, which is exactly how free-to-play games should be designed.
“Do it fair and don’t ever let the player feel like they’re being cheated because someone has paid. It’s not rocket science. You can go all the way through the entire game to the highest level without spending a penny at all.”
A closed beta for World of Speed will launch in a few months and you can sign up right here if you’re interested. Slightly Mad is excited to make this game a platform more than a single experience, and it sounds like they’re checking all the right boxes for the time being.
What do you say racing fans? Excited yet?
