The Grand Tour video game coming to PS4 and Xbox One
Now you can emulate Clarkson, Hammond or May on their crazy adventures, thanks to The Grand Tour Game coming to PS4 and Xbox One soon
Inspired by the on-screen efforts of former Top Gear trio Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May, The Grand Tour is soon to launch a tie-in video game for PS4 and Xbox One.
In a bid to capitalise on the trio’s £35.8 million contract deal with Amazon Prime, the Amazon Game Studio release allows you to portray Clarkson, Hammond or May and tackle a series of challenges from the programme.

As seen in the game’s trailer, players can drive around iconic global locations, including The Grand Tour’s Eboladrome test track. You can even crash into Old Lady’s House. As you do…
The game won’t be playable in its entirety straight away, however. The Grand Tour Game will instead be episodic. Gamers will be able to re-enact situations from Amazon’s exclusive car show through a weekly download that coincides with the airing of Season 3.
Each download is set to put you through the same tasks faced by the presenters during that week’s show, with each instalment of The Grand Tour getting its own episode within the game, too.
‘It’s a video game featuring me, the crashy one, and the slow one’, explained Clarkson.
‘That’s all you need to know. 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’.
As the above quote will hint at, humour is set to be a large part of the game. For example, in-game power-ups include ‘More Horsepowers’ and ‘High Tea’.
This isn’t the first time Clarkson has given his voice to a video game. The presenter provided the voice over and various in-game tours to Forza 5 and 6, and the launch material for Forza 4.
Jeremy also voiced the character of Harv in Disney/Pixar’s Cars before the trio portrayed racing commentators for child’s cartoon Phineas and Ferb.
No release date for The Grand Tour Game has been confirmed, but we’ll keep you updated with further release dates. In the meantime, we'll indulge you with their cartoon selves.

The Mondial saw Ferrari return to Pininfarina as its choice of styling house, and it was sold as a mid-sized Coupé and, eventually, a Cabriolet. Conceived as a ‘more usable’ model, offering the practicality of four seats with the performance of a mid-range Ferrari, it was aimed at attracting a slightly wider audience than their traditionally more focused two-seaters. The car’s body was not
