Slightly Mad Studios today announced a new game in their arsenal of racing titles with the reveal of World of Speed, an upcoming free-to-play racing MMO set to launch later this year on PC. The developers have been behind some of the most successful racing titles in recent years including Need for Speed: Shift and Test Drive: Ferrari Racing Legends, bringing an impressive level of expertise to the free-to-play genre.
“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,” said Ian Bell, Chief Executive
Officer 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

At first glance the game appears to boast many of the elements in the upcoming PlayStation 4 title, Drive Club, but World of Speed will contain micro-transactions which have been unsuccessful in past free-to-play racers.
