Doctor Who: The Edge of Time New Gameplay Video Showcases Game Scenes
A gameplay video for Doctor Who: The Edge of Time virtual reality game was quietly released last week which includes direct scenes of the VR experience. The video was first previewed during the recently concluded San Diego Comic-Con 2019 in late July and is from the beta version of the game.
The Edge of Time will be released for HTC Vive, Oculus Quest, Oculus Rift, Vive Cosmos and Playstation VR in September. It immerses players into a digital version of TARDIS. In the San Diego Comic-Con demo, it was faithfully recreated via a 3D scanner and photogrammetry for VR. Close to 1200 hours of work had gone into recreating the virtual reality version of the space-time machine.
In May 2019, the first episode of virtual reality experience of the hit British sci-fi cult series was released and it was dubbed Doctor Who: The Runaway which cast the viewer in the role of Doctor Who’s companion. In that episode, the player finds himself in TARDIS after a collision with Volta, a ball of energy that is part moody teenager and part space bomb which the player has to safely guide back to home planet before it explodes. That episode lasted only 13 minutes.
In the newest virtual reality offshoot of the famous sci-fi series, the player must find the eponymous Doctor Who with the assistance of the TARDIS time machine. The player will travel through the familiar and the unfamiliar new worlds to look for time crystals and help save the universe from a virus.
In this journey, the player will encounter the notorious Daleks as well as many other famous characters from the series. They will also encounter the old monsters as well as new ones that have never been seen before. There is a sonic screwdriver that has been designed to help with the creatures and in solving puzzles.
Doctor Who: The Edge of Time has been developed by the London-based virtual reality studio Maze Theory. An advisor for the project is Sony’s former head of London Studio Dave Ranyard.
Doctor Who: The Edge of Time is a multi-hour adventure that is scheduled to be released in September 2019 for a variety of headsets including Oculus Quest,Oculus Rift S, PlayStation VR, HTC Vive and Vive Cosmos.
