    With release of the official Grand Tour game right around the corner, check out the three rather unique pre-order bonus cars announced earlier today.

    With the game looking to closely follow the real world shenanigans of presenting trio Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond, it was probably always inevitable that some of the contraptions featured throughout the history of the show would make it into the game.. and needless to say that is very much the case in the terms of this new pre-order bonus collection.

    Featuring a car / fire engine, a garden on wheels and a pimped out beach buggy, the three bonus cars probably won't be challenging the likes of the holy trinity anytime soon, but could still provide plenty of laughs for anyone looking to take to the track against their friends in the four player split screen mode, or at the very least add some interesting novelty content for fans of the Amazon Prime motoring show..

    As an added bonus, Amazon have slashed the price of the title on the run up to release, with the official Grand Tour game now available for just under £12 for a limited period of time.


    The Grand Tour Videogame will release on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 January 15th 2019.

    I think rFactor 2 only supplies the physics, graphics are based on Amazon's Lumberyard engine if I am correct.

    I think that dropdown is supposed to be the Portimao circuit?

    Tjeez, is this for Playstation "Classic" or something?

    The price slash and very limited gameplay footage releases have me worried...

    I don't think I've ever seen a 'major' title so close to release with almost no gameplay footage.

    I'll be surprised if this isn't a spectacular dumpster fire.

    It's been many, many years (probably pre Gran Turismo 1) since devs have been able to dip their toes into the "driving game" genre in a half hearted fashion without getting laughed out of the market.

    They certainly arent doing themselves any favours shows those compressed to hell pictures sucking out any iota of quality there.

    It's The Quiet Man all over again, well at least people can start their worst game of the year lists quickly.

    They are optimized for players who will sit on a couch 3 meters away with FOV of 90 degrees.

    At least they cut the price before releasing the game, unlike some other games *wink* *wink*
    15 bucks for this game is alright, it's main target isn't the sim racing community, so I don't really care about it, nor have negative feelings for it at all.

    Looking at this screens, I start wondering: is this a game feautering Clarkson and his sidekicks - or is it a game made by them?

    Fallout 76 was the most recent game to keep gameplay as hidden as possible, and look how that turned out...
