Amazon scored big when it picked up the former Top Gear crew for its own series, The Grand Tour. Now it's time for Clarkson, Hammond and May to make the jump from the TV screen to about another entry on the same TV screen.
Amazon announced today that it will release the Grand Tour Game on both Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The game will closely mimic the show, giving players the opportunity to relive some of the cars, places and challenges shown in the first three years of Amazon streaming series. In addition to single player action, there will also be a four player, split screen multiplayer option, too. Every time a new Grand Tour episode falls during the third season, you get access to new cars, tracks and challenges from that episode.
The game is not just a reskinned version of Gran Turismo or something like that. Amazon Game Studios in Seattle created the Grand Tour Game, using Amazon's own game-specific technology, as well as its internal web services. The graphics in the trailer can not be up to Forza or GT snus, but they look pretty good.
We're not sure when it's just sinking, but you can celebrate Amazon's pre-order pages if you want to know as soon as possible.
