    For clarification purposes:




    Think of it how you want but I look at this game and think of it as an evolution of the Project Gotham Racing formula and then some.

    This looks promising, it's like Project Cars only it's a F2P MMO! Very nice :tup:

    I think it might be worth mentioning that it's also completely different from Project CARS in that WOS is pure arcade racer while pCARS is full on racing simulation.

    This looks like a mix of Forza and Need for Speed and then dubbed with the worst music ever.

    I'll most likely try it though, it's free.
    Edit-Looked at website/forums and couldn't find car list. Anyone know?

    Isn't the whole club/team racing Drive Club's thing? Despite that, I like the idea, would love such a game. However it looks very awful so far. The graphics look terrible compared to what's out and about today. And look at that, another hyper car fest game. :rolleyes: I definitely give it a try if they add in a larger car variety and maybe if the graphics get a bit more finely tuned at release time.

    Graphics look fine to me, it's clearly running on the same engine as Project Cars, aswell as using some of the assets from that game. Considering Project Cars is often considered the best looking racer I'm a little baffled as to how you think it's behind on graphics?

    It might be the reflections, they appear different to me. Or at least, I need to see some high-definition pictures of this game to compare with some P.C.A.R.S. photos. I don't know, something is clearly different and it makes it took terrible.

    It's because they want this game to be played by as many people as possible. They are building WoS in such a way that it should run on everything from the high end PC towers to the every day laptops.

    Need for Speed World is what they are going for I think. Burnout style physics with street cars and mostly street racing.

    I wonder if they're using the pCARS engine just with some handling tweaks.

    There's a very large difference between hyper cars and street cars.

    That's all we've seen so far, but I'm sure there are going to be a lot more street cars in the final game, and as soon as we can release any information, the SMS members on this forum will give you that info.

    In terms of car selection, there could be some surprises: I spotted an R34 Skyline in the video wicken posted (1:57).
    If that's true, they ought to make that more clear in the future, because based on the "AAA HD graphics and visuals!" I had already written this off as yet another PC game I can't afford the hardware to play.

    Dude, that footage of the Skyline R34 was from NFS Shift.

    Ah well, I guess the racing suits are a clue. I kept waiting for anything that wasn't a modern high-performance car to show up.

    Hyper cars are street cars. Either way, a Chevy Camaro is not a hyper car.

    People are asking how much WoS will suck compared to NFSW and Drew was the community manager for NFSW. He tried to promote NFSW a lot and well, the game went downhill a few patches after Beta (I was part of it :D ). And seeing how he's now working on a game that's extremely similar and having people asking him if it'll suck like World.

    The physics looks fun and less annoying than Shift for me, lets hope it wont be a hack fest like NFS World
