Doctor Who: The Edge of Time materialising in September
The Edge of Time
We’re super excited to be working with Maze Theory, a team of ex-PlayStation and Activision veterans, to create Doctor Who: The Edge Of Time. Transporting 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.
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.
Maze Theory Creative Director, Marcus Moresby said “Maze Theory is committed to re-defining storytelling through awesome, innovative and immersive experiences in virtual reality. Doctor Who is an incredibly exciting and timeless franchise with a passionate and committed global fan base. We are looking to give them an entirely new experience; an opportunity to team-up with the Doctor and feel like they are in the show. This of course includes piloting the TARDIS, a dream come true for fans!”
A new mysterious enemy threatens to tear apart the universe and only you can stop them! Armed with the Sonic Screwdriver, players will solve mind-bending puzzles, grapple with iconic 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.
PlayStack CEO, Harvey Elliott said "Virtual Reality is unmatched in its ability to transport people to far flung worlds. PlayStack has always seen this as the central promise of the technology, and for us there’s no better place to take players than the iconic, eccentric, and deeply fascinating world of Doctor Who. We are delighted to be working with Maze Theory and the BBC Studios on this flagship VR project, and can’t wait for fans to experience the game for themselves."
In May we travelled to MCM Comic Con to give Whovians a first play and explore the universe of The Doctor. We were blown away by the response from fans, with almost every regeneration of The Doctor arriving to enter The Edge of Time. We got some great comments from people on things from the show they’d love to see in the game, as well as a few improvements to be made, (namely changing the direction the TARDIS doors open!). We’ll be actioning some of the feedback in time for September’s launch. We’ll be travelling to San Diego via TARDIS in time for SDCC next month. See you there.
Doctor Who: The Edge of Time arrives September. Available on Playstation VR, Oculus Rift, Oculus Quest, HTC Vive and HTC Cosmos.
