The purpose of complaining back some of the big money it paid for signing up Clarkson, Hammond and Mai three years ago, Amazon is ready to launch The Grand Tour video game for Play Station 4 and Xbox One.
As you would expect, the game will be closely linked to the car-based Prime Original, which was first streamed for gearheads in November 2016.
Aside from "seamless transition from the rock to the show to gameplay" you will also find amazing engines, exotic places and outrageous challenges, along with "hours" of original voices that work by Clarkson and his two sidekicks.
Even better, Amazon claims Grand Tour Game is "the first and only playable TV show where you will play the actual scenes you've seen on the screen." In other words, they will feed in show themes as season 3 goes so you can try vehicles and tracks as each episode falls. "If they are driving a cool car, you can. If they go to a fantastic location, you can also," says Amazon, adding that the game will give all the fun on The Grand Tour with none of the " neck injury and hospitalization. "We assume they make your best insults!
Created by Amazon Game Studios, Grand Tour Game offers a single player option along with a shared screen. mode where players can compete against each other "and throw their best insults ̵
"It's a video game with me, the crash and the slow one. That's all you need to know, "Jeremy Clarkson said in an edition." If you've always wanted to get along with us, this is as close as possible. Unless you kidnap James and steal his face.
Talk about May, his dress Grand Tour Game : "If you've ever wanted to do my job, you can now. Obviously not literally, it's just a game so please do not go through the drawers on my desk. "
And Hammond? "I live in the deep landscape, so honestly I'm impressed with everything that's going on, but I have to admit that this game is particularly brilliant, especially the participant's split screen."
Craig Sullivan, Creative Director at Amazon Game Studios , said his team intended to capture the spirit of the show, which he describes as "cars, horror with friends, and (mostly) friendly competition."
So how good is that? Well, if the trailer (above) is something to go with, the graphics look more Pole Position than DiRT 4, but if the decision makers have managed to inject some of the show's unique features in the game, the fans should be happy.
A release date for Grand Tour Game is not yet announced, but as it is tied to the show, it should land by the end of the year when Season 3 is expected to start. There is no word on the pricing either. Check back here for updates.
