This will be the biggest experience based on Doctor Who in VR to date.
It seems that in 2019 there will be an extravaganza of Doctor Who for fans of a science fiction show. Last week we could already see the Doctor Who: The Runaway VR animation, which became available on all virtual reality helmets. Now the British studio Maze Theory has announced work on a video game called Doctor Who: Edge Of Time.
Just like Doctor Who: The Runaway, you don’t play as the 13th Doctor (played by Jody Whittaker) in Doctor Who: Edge Of Time, instead you’re his assistant and you need to find him. You have to solve mind-blowing puzzles, as well as fight with some of the classic monsters of the series, such as distant and crying angel, along with brand-new unseen monsters. In the end, you will need to defeat a powerful force that threatens to destroy the fabric of reality.
“The doctor was hurled through time to the edge of the universe. A virus that threatens to break reality itself has been released. Players can fly the TARDIS on a journey through the worlds, familiar and strange, to restore a series of powerful time crystals that can save space-time matter and ultimately save the universe itself, ”explains the game description.
While the previous VR content based on Doctor Who was relatively short, Doctor Who: Edge Of Time will be the largest VR experience to date based on the show, with a few hours of gameplay for players.
Designed by Maze Theory and introduced by PlayStack, Doctor Who: Edge Of Time will be released in September 2019 with support for PlayStation VR, Oculus Rift, Oculus Quest, HTC Vive and Vive Cosmos headsets.
This is not the only VR experience Maze Theory is working on. Only the studio founded last year released the first game called The Vanishing Act. And just recently, work on Peaky Blinders VR, which is scheduled for release in 2020, was shown in April.
These are two high-profile IP projects that the team can now proudly demonstrate to the public. As soon as more information about Doctor Who: Edge Of Time or Peaky Blinders appears, VRcue will let you know.
