Game: The Grand Tour Game

Platform: PS4, XBox One

Publisher: Amazon

Release Date: 15/01/2019

The Grand Tour Game will utilise the same physics that underpin rFactor 2, the game’s creative director has revealed.

Speaking to MCV, Amazon Games Studios’ Craig Sullivan confirmed the rFactor 2 developer Studio 397 had assisted in the development of The Grand Tour Game.

Sullivan added that “[using] rFactor physics in our game” also helped accelerate the development work on the title.

Studio 397 isn’t the only racing game developer that’s leant Amazon Games Studios a hand on the project. Other partners include Electric Square and Stellar Entertainment, which worked on Miami Street and the Burnout Paradise remaster respectively.

The Grand Tour Game is an upcoming tie-in title for the popular motoring show, and is set to be released on the PS4 and Xbox One on 15th January 2019.

As well as featuring split-screen multiplayer and seamless show-to-gameplay transitions, The Grand Tour Game will also have additional content added in tandem with the release of the new episodes.
