Amazon has announced an episodic racing game based on their Prime Original series, The Grand Tour.

Aptly called The Grand Tour Game, will “transports players to exotic locations, where they’ll drive the world’s most interesting cars, and participate in the show’s outrageous challenges.”

A new episode of The Grand Tour Game will be added weekly to coincide with season 3 of the show.

The game features the show’s Eboladrome test track and voice acting from Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May.

“It’s a video game featuring me, the crashy one, and the slow one. That’s all you need to know,” said Jeremy Clarkson. “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.”

“If you’ve ever wanted to do my job, now you can,” said James May, “Obviously not literally, it’s just a game, so please don’t go through the drawers of my desk.”

“I live in the deep countryside, so frankly I’m impressed by anything that runs on electricity,” said Richard Hammond. “But I have to admit this game is particularly brilliant, especially the four-player split-screen.”

The Grand Tour Game was developed by Amazon Game Studios in Seatle using their Amazon Game Tech.

The Grand Tour is about powerful cars and ridiculous stunts, but it’s also about camaraderie,” said Craig Sullivan, Creative Director at Amazon Game Studios. “We’re committed to authentically capturing the spirit of the show: cars, banter with friends, and (mostly) friendly competition.”

The Grand Tour Game will be available later this year for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
