The new Doctor Who VR game, Edge of Time, finally has a release date.
The game, which is developed by UK-based Maze Theory, arrives on November 12. That’s a little later than the September 2019 window originally promised but this will be a simultaneous launch for every platform. That means PSVR and Oculus Quest versions are launching on the same day as Rift, Vive and Index. Not often you see that!
Doctor Who VR Release Date Confirmed
In Edge of Time, you play as a new companion to the Doctor, who is stuck on the edge of time. You’ll assist her in fighting off the Reality Virus, which threatens the entire universe. Along the way, you’ll face classic foes like Daleks and the Weeping Angels. Maze Theory also created brand new monsters for the experience. Check out the trailer for the game below.
That release date is just two days ahead of anticipated Oculus Rift exclusive, Stormland. That’s only coming to one headset, though, so Maze Theory shouldn’t have much to fear.
We’ve been hands-on with the game a few times now. It looks set to deliver the cheesy sci-fi thrills that fans of the show love so much. It remains to be seen, though, if the puzzles will find as natural a fit.
It’s not to be confused with Doctor Who: The Runaway. That was an excellent little VR movie, though it didn’t feature any interactivity. It was one of the last projects the BBC’S VR Hub put out before its closure was announced last week. As Edge of Time proves, though, the BBC still has plans for VR.
In fact, those include a Peaky Blinders VR game, also developed by Maze Theory, which will be launching next year.
