Gamescon 2018: The Grand Tour Game from Amazon Game Studios

That's right, Amazon has real live game studios and they announced they are working on another game! This one takes one of the most popular shows on Amazon Prime TV, the Grand Tour and puts it in a video game.

There isn't much to see here but apparently there is color commentary from Clarkson and the crew and you get to play along the settings and the cars you see in the TV shows.

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. Itís 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 youíve 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 youíve 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, youíll 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.
I don't really play or enjoy racing games at all but I definitely like the dynamic that Clarkson and crew have. Even though Clarkson turned out to be a douche. The idea behind the game of players being able to revisit scenes and vehicles from the show may be enough to set it apart from the other rash of racing games, but may also be limiting in this day and age of open world games like The Crew or Horizon.

Full disclosure: on occasion my path crosses with people on this product.

Framerate is bad.
Is this going to be f2p?
Will it play on my fire tablet?
