here is the trailer, youtube, machinima - no ads, HD: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GYNKzGKsfm0&hd=1

here is their official website - http://www.worldofspeed.com/

it seems to be an mmo f2p game, i'm not exactly sure how they will implement microtransactions, or a subscription or whatever.

they describe it as 'action racing', so iracing will probably remain superior for sim multiplayer racing. i'm guessing they'll go with a forgiving physics model, like forza / gt.

i think this could be a great game. i'm a bit confused as to why they are announcing this before project cars is out the door. also, i think f2p will only decrease the seriousness of opponents. if we're racing we're racing, not playing bumper cars. it will need a fair but strict ruleset.

Why am I getting PGR vibes from this?

Bit weird, wish they'd just focus on Project CARS to be honest.

Interesting. Much better than anything Xbone owners are getting, that's for sure.

Same can be said for PS4 owners.

Sony will provide PS4 owners with many amazing experiences in the years to come.

Greatness just takes time.

I remember when NFS Shift came out. I welcomed a new "sim" with open arms.

Then I quickly sent it on its way. I hope this has something that remotely resembles psychics.

What the fuck is this and where is Project CARS

On one hand the studio has a lot of experience in car based games, on the other hand those graphics come off as something I would see on an Ipad.

Not sure what it is they just look really shiny, and I feel like I've seen a mobile racer look a lot like that before.
