The Edge of Time is a New Full Length Doctor Who VR Game

As someone who previously fell out of love with the BBC Doctor Who TV series for a while, I really enjoyed Jodie Whittaker's new take on the classic character. Her charm, humour, and passion for the role were a delight to watch, and now we have the chance to play as her too.

Developed by studio Maze Theory, Doctor Who: The Edge of Time is an upcoming feature length VR game due to release this September for PlayStation VR, Vive, Steam VR, and Oculus.

“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.”

The game will feature puzzles to solve using the Sonic Screwdriver, as well as encounters with both Daleks and Weeping Angels. The latter of those is most interesting to us: the thought of a SUPERHOT-style mechanic where the angels only move when you look away from them could make for some genuinely tense gameplay.
