Doctor Who The Edge Of Time VR Videogame

Join a mission to save the universe: Doctor Who: The Edge Of Time lets fans embark on an adventure through space and time!

The fully-interactive VR videogame, featuring the voice of Jodie Whittaker, will arrive this September

In a landmark year of digital Doctor Who entertainment, and following the recent reveal of The Runaway, an animated VR experience, comes a new cinematic, feature-length Doctor Who VR videogame this September.

Published by PlayStack and developed by Maze Theory, Doctor Who: The Edge Of Time will transport fans into a globally-beloved world of aliens, mystery and wonder, letting them embark on a brand-new and fully-interactive adventure, inspired by the show’s 55-year history and starring the Doctor’s current incarnation, played by Jodie Whittaker.

Armed with the iconic Sonic Screwdriver, players will solve mind-bending puzzles, grapple with classic monsters and encounter new horizons in a quest to find the Doctor and defeat a powerful force that threatens to destroy the fabric of reality. They will face the infamous Daleks and other known faces from the Doctor’s world plus some brand new never-before-seen monsters as they travel through stunning cinematic environments that truly bring the show to life!

The Doctor has been hurled through time to the end of the universe. A virus that threatens to rip apart reality itself has been unleashed. Players can pilot the TARDIS on a journey across worlds both familiar and strange to recover a series of powerful time crystals that can repair spacetime and ultimately, save the universe itself.

Developed by immersive entertainment studio Maze Theory, led by former Activision and PlayStation veterans, Doctor Who: The Edge Of Time will launch in September 2019 on PlayStation VR, Oculus Rift, Oculus Quest, HTC VIVE and the upcoming VIVE Cosmos.

Head of Digital Entertainment & Games for BBC Studios, Bradley Crooks said ” “VR is the perfect home for a truly immersive Doctor Who adventure.

Gaming is a key part of the future of Doctor Who and allows us to tell new and exciting stories beyond the TV screen.”

PlayStack CEO, Harvey Elliott said “Virtual Reality is unmatched in its ability to transport people to far flung worlds.

    I just want a Doctor Who PS4 game. It’s literally one of the most successful tv shows of all time, known all around the world so why are the games so lackluster. I don’t want to have to pay god knows how much for VR
