The Grand Tour Video Game Lets You Be Clarkson, Hammond, And May

Amazon Announce The Grand Tour Game For PlayStation 4 And Xbox One

The Grand Tour is getting a video game featuring Clarkson, Hammond and May

Why it matters: Amazon reportedly poured a lot of money into landing the former Top Gear hosts for its original series The Grand Tour.

Now only time will tell if this could be the best racing game *deep breathe* in the world, but I'm interested to see how much money Amazon has thrown at this and whether a TV series tie-in game could be entertaining.

The Grand Tour Game is in development for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, although a release date has yet to be announced.

Craig Sullivan, creative director at Amazon Game Studios, said the game is all about powerful cars and ridiculous stunts, but also, camaraderie.

The five lessons England learnt from third Test defeat to India
England captain Joe Root leaves the field after being dismissed during the fourth day of the third cricket test against India . He has scored 440 runs in the series, 234 more than the next highest run-scorer, England's Jonny Bairstow.

In total, the game will feature locations and vehicles from the first episode of season 1, the first episode of season 2, and all of season 3. "If you've always wanted to come on the road with us, this is as close as you'll ever get".

The Grand Tour is being made into a game. "But I have to admit this game is particularly brilliant, especially the four-player splitscreen". "Unless you kidnap James and steal his face".

"I live in the deep countryside, so frankly I'm impressed by anything that runs on electricity", said Richard Hammond. 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. Clarkson, Hammond and May have also recorded hours of voice acting for the game to capture the show's sense of humour. The game features clips from the show as well, along with four-player split-screen multiplayer mode which incorporates power-ups to help you keep everyone else behind you.
