Gamescom 2018: Join Clarkson, Hammond, and May in The Grand Tour Game

An episodic game gives the e-commerce giant another opportunity to monetize its investment. Old Top Gear hosts Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May took a detour to Amazon a few years ago, where they've been working on their own auto show, The Grand Tour.

There's not a whole lot to say here really, as the video features the trio of hosts more than it does the actual game. They have announced The Grand Tour Game based on the series featuring Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May, and it's coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. By the sound of it, the game will operate sort of like an interactive version of the TV show, featuring the cars and locations shown in the episodes. "That's all you need to know", says Jeremy Clarkson, who you'll remember as the man who was sacked from Top Gear for punching one of the show's producers. "Unless you kidnap James and steal his face".

Craig Sullivan, creative director at Amazon Game Studios, said the game is all about powerful cars and ridiculous stunts, but also, camaraderie. "We're committed to authentically capturing the spirit of the show: cars, banter with friends, and (mostly) friendly competition".

The racer will offer four-player splitscreen and "over-the-top" power-ups, we're told. The Grand Tour Game doesn't have a price yet, though the description of the game's trailer on YouTube does suggest it will have a season pass, indicating that this will not be a free-to-play experience. For reference, seasons one and two premiered in late November and early December, respectively.
