Jodie Whittaker and David Tennant team up as their respective Doctors in this new console adventure game.
Maze Theory and BBC Studios have announced today that Doctor Who: The Edge of Reality finally has a release date: September 30th, 2021.
The new adventure will pair the 13th Doctor, voiced by Jodie Whittaker, and the fan-favourite 10th Doctor, voiced by David Tennant, in a new adventure that “reimagines and expands” on Doctor Who: The Edge of Time, a VR-only release.
The Edge of Reality, however, is not a virtual reality game. It’s a first-person adventure in a brand new story written by Gavin Collinson, the writer of the previous Doctor Who games, Edge of Time and The Lonely Assassins.
Ian Hambleton, CEO of Maze Theory said: “With our partners at BBC Studios, we are giving Doctor Who fans and gamers an incredible new experience through space and time.”
He adds: “The appearance of both the Thirteenth and Tenth Doctors is set to be an epic event. The ‘Chaosverse’ is a mind-blowing new concept, which brings a whole new dimension to the Doctor Who experience.”
Kevin Jorge, Senior Producer – Games & Interactive for BBC Studios said: “We’re really excited to bring Doctor Who back to console and to give players the chance to be the centre of a new Doctor Who adventure. We’re always striving to bring the Doctor Who universe to life in unique and interesting ways, tell new stories and give fans the chance to be part of their own adventure and I believe we’ve done that with The Edge of Reality.“
Doctor Who: The Edge of Reality releases September 30th, 2021 for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC.
