Hello everyone!

It is time to share some information about new features that will be added in the following update of World of Speed.

Ranked races

The most important addition is the Ranked Race mode that will allow players to compete with each other for the top position at the global rating, composed of ten different leagues. In each ranked race you will face several selected opponents among other players and the usual rewards will be achieved along with special Rating Points. By accumulating these points you will be able to gain access to more prestigious leagues, compete with stronger players, hone and prove your skills so you can fight for the better positions to get bigger season rewards.



Racing wheels and gamepads

At the time of the Early Access the range of game controllers supported by the game without any errors was quite scarce. Initially this problem was due to a number of technical restrictions inherited by the past game , which required significant modifications to the program code. We are actively working on a solution of this problem and will gradually increase the number of devices supported to the maximum. By the moment the update is released, players will find the range of devices expanded and to return to the game using familiar racing wheels and gamepads.

New cars - Ultimate Power

The update will include a new dealer - Ultimate Power. It will add two new supercars of the top “I” tier, which are famous among all fans of powerful vehicles – the Pagani Huayra and McLaren 12C. In World of Speed these cars will set a new higher bar for speed and controllability. However, only the most experienced players will be able to truly exploit their potential as the higher speeds demand perfect skills and reaction times. Those who are capable of maneuvering the advanced difficulty of these cars will have the opportunity to achieve superb results on the tracks which in turn has the greatest importance to ranked races.



At Queen Elizabeth’s

Especially for British architecture connoisseurs we have added four new London race tracks that can provide a worthy challenge for experienced racers longing to show off their skills. Perhaps you are keen on drifts? Then welcome to Westminster, where the longest part of the track takes mere seconds to pass. Or maybe your party piece is detour alleys? St. James Loop will display a great number of alternative routes. And last but not least – the Palace and Trafalgar Chicane will satisfy the needs of high speed and drag lovers as they will be given a free hand to get the most from their cars.



Car balance improved

The October update will come with improved car balance. Right now not all cars in the game receive the correct bonuses from the upgrades. That is why a lot of rear drive vehicles show better results than the front drive ones. A striking example of that is the Subaru BRZ, which is much more efficient than not only the Abarth 500, but even the Mini Cooper whose tier level is obviously higher. The new balance system will increase the efficiency of front drive cars as well as fix their upgrade values. These changes will make the game more fair, and the process of progressing – more entertaining and ultimately – increase the diversity of cars participating in races.



Bug fixes and corrections

Along with these huge additions, we continue working on less visible, but still significant features. That is – fixes of various bugs and cosmetic corrections, which will be present in the update. Also we would like to thank all the players who help us by reporting bugs and errors discovered in the game. We keep a sharp eye out for your feedback and thanks to it, we were able to fix a range of bugs that were difficult to reproduce. Thank you!

When?

And of course the key question – when will all the changes be available for the players? Our team is working hard to complete all necessary tasks and QA checks and will add new features as soon as possible. According to our current plan, the update will be released by the end of this month.

Hello fellow racers!

Many of you have been wondering what’s going on with the World of Speed project and have been concerned about the long absence of news. We are very happy to announce that work on the game is continuing – the development and publishing of the game are now transferred to Saber Interactive.

Today the project is moving into a new phase - we are launching Early Access, which means that from this point on the development of the game will strongly depend on your feedback.

At this moment, the game is in beta stage. Although many of the key elements of the game are ready, there is still much more to be done. Our team is absolutely dedicated to making World of Speed a fun and feature rich game. We strongly believe that the success of any multiplayer game depends on its community, and that’s why it is very important to us to listen to your feedback, and why we would be grateful for your cooperation and support.

We are looking forward to seeing your ideas, opinions and designs for how you think the game should evolve. Got a cool racing mod concept? Want to see your favorite car in-game? Have a suggestion for balance improvement? Excellent! Feel free to share them on the community hub. All such feedback will be carefully evaluated, and the most well supported suggestions will be added to our development schedule to emerge in the game with upcoming updates.

We’d like to express our gratitude to World of Speed players, both new and old. We look forward to your continuing support and enthusiasm as the game evolves.
