Amazon Announces a Real Janky-Looking ‘The Grand Tour Game’ for Xbox and PS4

You’ll be able to play as Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May in ‘The Grand Tour Game’ for Xbox and Playstation 4. 

The game, announced today, is being developed by Amazon Game Studios and will run on the Amazon Lumberyard game engine. It will be an episodic racing game, allowing players to get behind the wheel of the vehicles featured on The Grand Tour and participate in the same challenges that Clarkson, Hammond and May do in seasons one, two and three of the show. New ‘episodes’ will be added to the game each week throughout Season 3, bringing in different cars and locations for the player to try out.

“It’s a video game featuring me, the crashy one, and the slow one. That’s all you need to know,” said Clarkson. “If you’ve always wanted to come on the road with us, this is as close as you’ll ever get. Unless you kidnap James and steal his face.”

“If you’ve ever wanted to do my job, now you can,” added May. “Obviously not literally, it’s just a game, so please don’t go through the drawers of my desk.”

“I live in the deep countryside, so frankly I’m impressed by anything that runs on electricity,” Hammond. “But I have to admit this game is particularly brilliant, especially the four-player splitscreen.”

The game will feature a four-player split screen mode, allowing players to compete against eachother in the game’s various challenges. It will also feature power-ups such as ‘High Tea’ which spills sharp, broken fragments of a tea set onto the road to pop your rivals’ tires, or ‘More Horsepowers’ which provides a momentary performance boost. Amazon says the game is “infused with the show’s trademark humor and banter.”

The Grand Tour is about powerful cars and ridiculous stunts, but it’s also about camaraderie,” said Amazon Game Studios director Craig Sullivan. “We’re committed to authentically capturing the spirit of the show: cars, banter with friends, and (mostly) friendly competition.”

With season three of The Grand Tour expected to go live on Amazon Prime late this year or in early 2019, we’re expecting The Grand Tour Game to be released in the coming months – likely before Christmas.
