Slightly Mad Studios, the creators of Need for Speed: Shift and Project CARS, announced they are developing a new free-to-play massively multiplyer arcade racer called World of Speed that will be published by My.com. Due later this year, World of Speed will have live events, challenges, and the social elements crucial for the success of any free-to-play game. Ian Bell, CEO of Slightly Mad, stressed the all-important freemium buzzword soup.
“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.”
World of Speed will be entering closed beta in the Spring.
