World of Speed gameplay video takes a spin through Moscow

World of Speed is an MMO-style racing game from Need for Speed: Shift and Shift 2: Unleashed developer Slightly Mad Studios, and this is some of the first gameplay footage we've seen since the game's announcement in February. The video shows off driver-seat and third-person perspectives, and we have to say, that shiny, reflective hood in first-person view is mighty pretty.

World of Speed is due out on PC this year as a free, downloadable game published by Beta sign-ups are open now through the game's website.
