The VR experience arrives tomorrow.
After a little delay Maze Theory will be launching one of the longest-running TV shows as a virtual reality (VR) experience tomorrow, Doctor Who: The Edge of Time. Offering a multiplatform release for fans to the show, today, the studio has unveiled the launch trailer, teasing further details about the experience.
Unlike Doctor Who: The Runaway which was a short interactive animation, Doctor Who: The Edge of Time is a feature-length VR experience. With an original story where both you and the Doctor have to travel across space and time to save reality, you get to see more of the locations you’ll be travelling to. Whether that’s escaping from a space-stranded cruiser, visiting Victorian London or exploring an Egyptian temple, Maze Theory promises lots to see and do.
You’ll be able to step inside the TARDIS and operate its controls, pilot a Dalek shell to harness its deadly weaponry, and wield the Sonic Screwdriver to solve elaborate puzzles. Doctor Who: The Edge of Time will also leave your heart racing as you come face to face with the terrifying Weeping Angels.
Featuring countless references to the show and its 55-year history, Maze Theory has worked closely with BBC Studios to bring Doctor Who: The Edge of Time whilst retaining the TV shows’ authenticity. Jodie Whittaker continues to play the role of the Doctor while Nicholas Briggs voices the Daleks, the videogame will have plenty of Doctor Who easter eggs to find along the way for eagle-eyed fans.
Doctor Who: The Edge of Time will launch on 12th November 2019 supporting PlayStation VR, Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and HTC Vive Cosmos, with an Oculus Quest version coming in December. In addition to the home VR experience, Maze Theory has created a streamlined location-based entertainment (LBE) edition. This will be arriving on 23rd November – Doctor Who Day – via content distribution platforms; Synthesis VR, SpringboardVR, Ctrl V and Vive Arcade, so plenty of arcades worldwide should have access to it.
We will continue its coverage of Maze Theory, reporting back with the latest updates including its next title based on another TV show, Peaky Blinders.
