Developer Maze Theory’s “cinematic, feature-length” Doctor Who VR game, The Edge of Time, is right around the corner, with a PlayStation VR, Oculus, and Vive release still pencilled in for the rapidly dwindling month of September. And in anticipation of that imminent launch, there’s a new trailer offering a few additional gameplay glimpses.
Previously, Maze Theory revealed that The Edge of Time would ask players, safely ensconced in their VR headsets, to “solve mind-bending puzzles, grapple with classic monsters and encounter new horizons in a quest to find the Doctor and defeat a powerful force that threatens to destroy the fabric of reality”. That adventure would involve journeying to destinations “both familiar and strange to recover a series of powerful time crystals”.
To date, Maze Theory has shown very little in the way of gameplay for its Jodie-Whittaker-starring virtual reality experience, with the exception of one exceedingly brown introductory sequence in a Cole Hill junkyard, initially demoed during this year’s San Diego Comicon. That early snatch saw players, with a little help from the Doctor, summoning the TARDIS into being in order to escape a Dalek invasion.
