The racing-themed video game industry mostly consists of three highly recognizable franchises [Gran Turismo, Forza Motorsports and Need For Speed] but a new contender has entered the fray – “World of Speed”. The racing MMO is the creation of a former “Need For Speed” game developer and will make its debut on PC later this year. The game is team-based racing competition where the teams vie for control of various cities [London, Monaco and Moscow in the initial version]. Aside from the team-based racing structure, the other main component draw is the number and quality of vehicles. While WOS has nowhere near the stable of Gran Turismo or Forza Motorsports, it has a few SMS and AMG Mercedes as well as a Pagani Huayra.
“World of Speed” is expected to be available on PC later in 2014 and may be adapted later for Sony PS4 and Microsoft Xbox One.
