Initially targeting launch in September, upcoming VR game Doctor Who: The Edge of Time finally has a firm release date.

Update (October 25th, 2019): Maze Theory has released word that the Quest version of Doctor Who: The Edge of Time will actually be delayed on Quest, coming at some point in December.

Original Article (October 22nd, 2019): Developed by Maze Theory, a UK-based studio led by former Activision and PlayStation veterans, the fully interactive VR game is officially launching on November 12th via the PlayStation Store (PSVR), Steam (Vive, Rift), the Oculus Store (Rift, Quest), and Viveport (Cosmos, Rift, Vive).

Here’s how Maze Theory and publisher PlayStack describe it:

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 reveals in a recent dev vlog that the VR game includes several sections inspired by genres such as adventure, puzzle, and horror, while putting heavy emphasis on object interaction, problem solving, and visual atmosphere.

The game also features the voice of the Thirteenth Doctor (Jodie Whittaker) and Nicholas Briggs as the voice of the Daleks. Digital Producer for Doctor Who and author Gavin Collinson is behind the game’s story.

  • Doctor Who is a show mostly enjoyed by nerds, who tend to be pretty smart people and yet… everything made related to Doctor Who seems to be made for children and the mentally disabled. Here’s a game where you play as the one of the smartest men in the universe, yet there’s your sidekick talking to you like a little kid. “Sonic that car trunk, maybe there’s something inside”. Thanks sidekick. There’s no way my 1000 IQ genius alien would have figured that out on his own.
