After leaving Breakaway, Amazon Game Studios has yet to prove itself as a game developer. The band unveils The Grand Tour Game, an unrestrained racing game inspired by his TV program The Grand Tour.
separation, the first project ofAmazon Game Studios, has achieved neither the success nor the desired playfulness – to the point of being more or less let down by the developer, who has yet to prove himself. On the occasion of gamescom 2018, the studio surprises and reveals a new game that was not expected: the racing game The Grand Tour game.
We know the TV program The Grand Tour, this production of Prime Original produced by Amazon and with Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May on their journeys around the world, to test the most exceptional (or most unlikely) vehicles in sometimes crazy conditions or as part of particularly crazy challenges.
The Grand Tour Game is presented as the playful video adaptation of the show. The game takes the form of a motorsport game, but is episodic (evolving at the same pace as the show's broadcast pions) and is clearly a leading player on various circuits around the world to drive many different vehicles.
In anticipation of more details (for example on an official website that is still very empty), we notice that the game is "fast" announced on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and was designed by the Seattle office of Amazon Game Studio & # 39; s, based on Amazon Game Tech technologies, including AWS and Lumberyard technologies developed internally by Amazon. In addition to the importance of The Grand Tour Game, the game could be the first real test, both for Amazon's divisional game and for its technologies.
