World of Speed (abbreviated WoS) is a massively multiplayer online action-racing (MMOAR) video game published by My.com and developed by Slightly Mad Studios. The game is arcade-styled and involves racing on different tracks both taken from the real world (e.g. London and Moscow), as well as on originally made tracks where players can compete in different game modes in different settings. This includes in different weather- and road-conditions like rain, fog, winter, day and night. The game is designed to run on most modern PC (Windows) systems. There are not yet any official system requirements, however just like with many MMO games, this is usually announced in Closed Beta. The driving areas are detailed and have a realistic feel to it, for instance the in-game region named California Highway was inspired by Pacific Coast Highway and the Big Sur region. Besides public roads, there is urban street racing in cities as well as traditional racing tracks. The cars are also detailed both outside and inside, and has cockpit view showing the original related dashboard and other interior. The game is planned to have regular updates of new areas and tracks, new cars besides gameplay modes and other content suggested by the community.
The racing modes expected at the beginning are circuit and sprint stages, including social in-game events such as Clubs where players and teams can communicate and compete in different types of team-based gameplay modes (e.g. Territory Wars) or drive around in a Free Roam area called Airfield Playground.
Unique World of Speed mode where overall victory depends not just on the personal skills of each player, but also on the smooth interaction of all team members. Get reliable partners together, assign roles, change your car for specific tasks and take your team to the top.
Players can set up motor clubs and capture entire cities in Territory Battles. In addition, as the motor club grows it can access a club garage and a range of bonuses.
The game is planned to ever-expand its car range. The different cars vastly ranges from everyday rides, tuners, exotics, muscle cars to fast supercars with hefty performance. It is also officially announced that there will be car customization, both in looks and performance.So far there are 16 cars confirmed to be in-game.
