Ever wondered what it is like to be Jeremy Clarkson? Well now you can find out thanks to the confirmation of an official 'Grand Tour' video game!
Yes that's right, the three veteran former Top Gear presenters are set to have their own video game release based on the new Amazon TV series, Grand Tour. Set to release on Xbox One and PlayStation 4, the new game will mirror the real world TV series as Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond take a variety of high performance road cars for a tour around the world, and get up to the usual silly antics and obscure challenges.
Little is known of the upcoming game at present, however it is expected the content will be fleshed out in time for each new episode airing, which should mean players with access to the season pass version of the title will get the opportunity to try new cars, tracks, locations and challenges just before, or just after, the actual show in which those scenes are aired... pretty cool actually...
No doubt the new game will be firmly on the side of arcade once it releases, however fans of the TV trio will no doubt find this something of a must have item...
The Grand Tour Game gives you the unique chance to play the TV show, driving the cars you see on screen in the locations visited by Clarkson, Hammond and May. It’s all the smashing, skidding, high-speed action you see on The Grand Tour without the irritating need to sleep in a tent, argue about directions or pay a sudden visit to a local hospital.
If you’ve ever wanted to be Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond or James May without the inconvenience of becoming tired and breathless and always followed around by two other middle-aged men, your dreams are about to come true. The Grand Tour Game is the first and only playable TV show in which you get to play the actual scenes you’ve seen on screen. If they drive a cool car, you can too. If they go to an amazing location, you can too. Buy a Season Pass for The Grand Tour Game and every Friday during Season 3 when a new episode of the show arrives, you’ll get new vehicles and new tracks from that episode to play in the game. At last, all the fun of The Grand Tour with none of the callouses, neck strain and hospitalization. At least, we hope not.
So what do we know of the new title so far? Well we expect a four player spilt screen multiplayer mode, as can be seen on one of the images at the head of this article, and we also know the game will be updated on a weekly basis in time with the TV show itself. Other than that, well we'll just have to wait and find out won't we?
And on that bombshell.... goodnight.
