    Announced to a reasonably lukewarm reception here at RD back in August, Amazon racer 'The Grand Tour Game' has a new trailer - detailing "seamless transitions" from TGT episodes.

    Using a unique content streaming method that allows players to drive cars, tracks and challenges immediately after the airing of a Friday night Grand Tour episode, the new arcade racer from Amazon Game Studios certainly has plenty of that all important curiosity factor - although little is known about the title at this early stage.

    With the latest video release showcasing graphical power that looks far superior to the initially disappointing looking announcement trailer revealed HERE, thanks to The Grand Tour presenter James May we get to find out a little bit more of the new game, namely that players should "seamlessly" be able to transition from the show to the software, potentially opening up possibilities of either mid-episode interaction with the title, or more realistically related show content unlocking following the airing of the latest episode.

    No release date has come about with the new trailer, although with TGT filming already underway and a recent tease from host Jeremy Clarkson of the 03/11/2018 date suggests TGT season 3 and TGT Game could be here as soon as next month...

    It says something when a large part of a game trailer doesn't consist of ingame footage...

    Is The Grand Tour popular enough for this to sell? With competitors like Forza and GT.

    Maybe it's just me but didn't he say "you go from watching us to being dropped into the cockpit of the car", all I saw was chase cam footage.

    This "game" would have a lot of potential:
    — Amazon Studios infinite budget
    Experts driving the actual hypercars and giving feedback for realistic physics and handling

    But eventually it will be just an arcade ...and it would be a shame because with all the resources Amazon can have, they could create a masterpiece in terms of simulation.

    No PC version? No buy! :D

    Good competitor for World Racing 2. Too bad it came a bit late.

    Based on the 'gameplay footage' this seems like it's gonna behave like an Asphalt 8 type of game, it is apparently an arcade racer so..


    I think sales will depend on how much they're selling it for. If they go for a cheap indie game type price I think it could do well but if they go full out $70 then I doubt it'll sell well

    Yeah, James literally said "you don't need to be an expert to keep the car on the track" - which is a pretty clear indication that this game isn't really aimed at us!

    In fairness in the world of traction control, steer assist, LSD, you actually don't need to an expert to keep a car on track....
