The Grand Tour Game has received a last-minute price-cut ahead of its release on Tuesday, January 15th. As spotted by the folks at TeamVVV, the Amazon-developed arcade racer has been slashed to £11.99 ($14.99, €14.99) across all platforms the game can be pre-ordered on, which includes the Microsoft Store, the PlayStation Store and Amazon themselves. It was originally priced at £23.99 ($29.99, €29.99).

Developed by Amazon Game Studios in conjunction with Stellar Entertainment, the team behind Burnout Paradise Remastered, The Grand Tour Game is designed to allow players to experience the antics of Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May in their very own video game based on challenges from the Prime Video show. It will debut exclusively on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

 

The Grand Tour Game features content from the first two episodes of Seasons 1 and 2, with new cars and challenges to be added on a weekly basis throughout Season 3 of the show. Those who pre-order the game will also be able to enjoy James May’s Fire Truck, Richard Hammond’s Eco Car and Jeremy Clarkson’s Beach Buggy.

Ahead of its release, Amazon has been sharing new clips that showcase The Grand Tour Game, featuring the 3 hosts from the show to provide commentary and banter. The latest video, which can be viewed below, highlights the Mario Kart-style gadgets that are useable by players during race events. Whilst The Grand Tour Game can be enjoyed in solo-play, it also features four-player split-screen action, but there’s no word about any form of an online mode yet.

 

It won’t be long until we can discover everything The Grand Tour Game has to offer, however. With its release date a handful of days away, we’ll soon be able to recreate some of the iconic moments of Amazon’s original motoring series, including Richard Hammond’s infamous hill-climb in the Rimac Concept One. 

For more on The Grand Tour Game, stay tuned to FullThrottle Media, and be on the lookout for weekly content drops into the game to coincide with Season 3 of the show, which begins streaming on Friday, January 18th – exclusively on Prime Video.
