Amazon has been busy making… an episodic Grand Tour racing game for console
Amazon is making a PlayStation 4 and Xbox One racing game based mostly on Top Gear-by-another-name automobile present The Grand Tour.
The Grand Tour Game, made by Amazon Game Studios in Seattle, will likely be episodic and obtain new episodes weekly throughout Season 3 of the Prime TV present. It’s not clear how a lot content material an episode constitutes, nor whether or not they’ll value something. Season 3 of the TV present has no launch date, by the way, however is predicted round December.
The Grand Tour Game allows you to comply with within the footsteps and tire tracks of Grand Tour hosts Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond (I can not wait to see what they appear like in-game). There’s four-player split-screen and there are side-splittingly humorous power-ups like High Tea and More Horsepowers.
Here are some insufferable press launch quotes ostensibly by the present hosts.
“It’s a video game featuring me, the crashy one, and the slow one,” mentioned Jeremy Clarkson, supposedly. “That’s all you need to know. If you’ve always wanted to come on the road with us, this is as close as you’ll ever get. Unless you kidnap James and steal his face.”
James May supposedly mentioned: “If you’ve ever wanted to do my job, now you can. Obviously not literally, it’s just a game, so please don’t go through the drawers of my desk.”
And this is Richard Hamster: “I live in the deep countryside, so frankly I’m impressed by anything that runs on electricity. But I have to admit this game is particularly brilliant, especially the four-player splitscreen.”
