Not content with taking over the shopping industry and TV, Amazon is now making serious moves to enter the gaming market. For Xbox One owners, this will begin in January with the release of an episodic racing game based on their original series ‘The Grand Tour’, featuring ex-Top Gear presenters Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May.
The Grand Tour Game will arrive on 15th January with two episodes featuring fan favourites from the first two seasons of the TV show. New episodes of the game will arrive weekly alongside new episodes from the show.
Here’s the official description of the game as well as the trailer –
Ever wish you could get behind the wheel with Clarkson, Hammond, and May from The Grand Tour? Now it’s your turn! One moment you’re watching the hosts attempt some questionable automotive antics… the next you’re at the wheel yourself – same car, same location, same chance to make a massive mess of it.
The Grand Tour Game is an episodic racing game from Amazon Games based on the hit Prime Original series, The Grand Tour. Featuring seamless transitions from clips of the show to gameplay, plus original voice acting from the three hosts, The Grand Tour Game is infused with the show’s trademark humour and irreverence.
New episodes of The Grand Tour Game will be released weekly during Season 3 of the show, capturing cars, challenges and iconic locations, including the show’s signature Eboladrome test track.
Now the fun doesn’t have to end when the show’s over—in fact, it’s just beginning.
