Just like in the TV show, in The Amazing Race video game players will be tasked with using clues to overcome various challenges as they make their way through exotic locations all across the globe. The Amazing Race TV show host Phil Keoghan is featured in the game and greets players at every pit stop to read the clues, introduce challenges and give away prizes to players.
“I’m very happy that we can make everyone feel like extraordinary travelers and athletes while playing the game. I’m excited that kids and families will be able to experience the thrill of the race while competing and feel certain they will understand just how fun it is to actually compete in The Amazing Race,” said Phil Keoghan, host of The Amazing Race.
The Amazing Race has been a smash reality television game show hit since 2001 and has won the Emmy Award for Outstanding Reality-Competition Program seven straight times since the category was created in 2003.
