'The Grand Tour Game' (ALL) Announced - Screens & Trailer

The Grand Tour Game is an episodic racing game based on the hit Prime Original series, The Grand Tour.

Amazon.com announced that Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May are bringing high-jinks and hot laps to PS4 and Xbox One in The Grand Tour Game

The Grand Tour Game transports players to exotic locations, where they'll drive the world's most interesting cars, and participate in the show's outrageous challenges. New episodes of The Grand Tour Game will be added weekly during Season 3 of the show, capturing cars, locations, and surprises from each week's episode.

The Grand Tour Game puts players behind the wheel of the cars from Season 3, and brings them to the iconic locations the hosts will visit this season, including The Grand Tour's signature Eboladrome test track. Featuring seamless transitions from clips of the show to gameplay, plus hours of original voice acting from Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May, The Grand Tour Game is infused with the show's trademark humour and banter.


“It's a video game featuring me, the crashy one, and the slow one. That’s all you need to know,” said Jeremy Clarkson. “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.”

“If you’ve ever wanted to do my job, now you can,” said James May, “Obviously not literally, it’s just a game, so please don’t go through the drawers of my desk.”

“I live in the deep countryside, so frankly I’m impressed by anything that runs on electricity,” said Richard Hammond. “But I have to admit this game is particularly brilliant, especially the four-player splitscreen.”

In The Grand Tour Game, players can not only follow in the guys' tire tracks, but race and challenge each other face-to-face. The Grand Tour Game features four-player splitscreen, so players can race against each other—and hurl their best insults—in-person. Cheeky power-ups like High Tea, which spills tire-shredding cups and saucers, and More Horsepowers, which lets you blow past the competition, help make the action unpredictable, and keep racers on their toes.

“The Grand Tour is about powerful cars and ridiculous stunts, but it's also about camaraderie,” said Craig Sullivan, Creative Director at Amazon Game Studios. “We're committed to authentically capturing the spirit of the show: cars, banter with friends, and (mostly) friendly competition.”

Key Features:

  • Incredible cars, exotic locations, and ridiculous challenges from the hit show The Grand Tour
  • Weekly episodic delivery with Season 3 of the show
  • Four-player split-screen mode, so players can race against each other in-person
  • Over-the-top power-ups like High Tea, which spills tire-shredding cups and saucers, and More Horsepowers, which lets you blow past the competition
  • Seamless transition from show footage to gameplay, and new voiceover from Clarkson, Hammond and May

The Grand Tour Game was created by Amazon Game Studios, Seattle. The game was built using Amazon Game Tech, including Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Amazon Lumberyard.
