​The Grand Tour Is Being Made Into A Weekly Episodic Game

​The Grand Tour Is Being Made Into A Weekly Episodic Game

Ever wanted to take control of Jeremy Clarkson? Well, now you can.

Amazon has announced [via EuroGamer] that The Grand Tour, hosted by Clarkson with his buddies Richard Hammond and James May, is being made into a video game.

From the trailer, it looks like it will be a typical racing game. Of course, the hosts will feature and their ridiculous stunts will probably make up most of the content. You can even compete online.

Don't expect it to be as serious as most motor games, however, as players will be able to grab power-ups, such as "More Horsepowers." We imagine it will resemble a sort of 'real-life' Mario Kart.

Amazon Game Studios, which is based in Seattle, plan to launch their new project in an episodic format. Hitman Season 1 followed a similar structure, with a new location for the game releasing every month or so.

However, Amazon plan to be a tad quicker with their launches. Each episode will be released weekly alongside the corresponding episode from the upcoming Season 3 TV show.

​The Grand Tour Has Finally Arrived And Here’s What We Know About It

It's a pretty cool idea and gives fans something to do once each hour episode has ended, but will the novelty be enough to pull players away from other racing games?

I guess it all depends on how the developers choose to sell their product. If it's free for Amazon Prime members it could be a massive hit - but how would they make money? Sell in-game outfits for Hammond, perhaps?

A release date The Grand Tour Season 3 hasn't yet been given but we expect it to be around December, so stay tuned for updates as there'll no doubt be some in the coming months.

What do you think about this news? Will you be playing it? Have you been waiting for the opportunity to drive Clarkson off a cliff? Let us know.

The Grand Tour video game is set to launch on Xbox One and PS4, and will allow up to four players to compete in split-screen - but who on Earth could be the fourth racer? Definitely not the Stig, that's for sure.
