There’s a Doctor Who VR game coming out later this year on PSVR and other virtual reality headsets. The developers, Maze Theory, and the game’s publisher, PlayStack, are being very coy about the game. So far we’ve not actually seen any gameplay, just snippets of in-game footage here and there. The latest such tease comes in the form of a 52-second long trailer for the game’s Tardis, though half of the trailer is dedicated to logo screens and the like.
The trailer, which you can watch up above, gives us our first fleeting glimpse of Doctor Who’s time travelling machine. And I do mean fleeting. There are a couple of close-up shots of the Tardis’ interior before the camera pulls out to show us the middle section for a brief moment.
According to the press release, Maze Theory spent over 1200 hours creating the in-game Tardis, even going as far as to visit the Doctor Who set in Cardiff where they snapped hundreds of pictures of the real Tardis to use a reference for their in-game creation.
While myself and others are a little apprehensive due to not having any actual gameplay to see, those fears should be done away with once San Diego Comic-Con has run its course. It’s at the SADCC that fans will be able to go hands-on with the game and actually see what it’s all about. Unfortunately Pure PlayStation won’t be in attendance this year, but we’ll keep an eye on what people are saying about the game.
If you are heading to SADCC 2019, you can get in line to play Doctor Who: The Edge of Time VR at the BBC America booth (#4129.) Just be sure to take some anti-bacterial wipes; those headsets at conventions get awfully mucky, and you don’t want to end up looking like a Doctor Who monster, do you?
