The BBC and Maze Theory have announced Doctor Who: The Edge of Reality, a new game coming to consoles and PC with both David Tennant and Jodie Whittaker taking the part of the Doctor. It’s not a completely new game but rather a reimagining and expansion of the 2019 game Doctor Who: The Edge of Time which was for VR only. The new(ish) game will launch in Spring 2021 for PS4, Xbox One, Switch and PC, with next-gen versions also confirmed but undated.
Doctor Who: The Edge of Reality features:
- A Console and PC adventure across Space and Time – built with current and next-generation consoles in mind, Doctor Who: The Edge of Reality features new worlds to explore, new puzzles, new challenges and new gameplay.
- An Original Doctor Who story – uncover a universe-spanning threat as you seek to save reality from a series of time-breaking glitches. Continue the story that began in The Edge of Time and partner with the Doctor to unearth a greater mystery.
- New Enemies and AI – come face-to-face with classic Doctor Who monsters including the Daleks and Weeping Angels. Experience the metal-clad terror of the Cybermen and more foes yet to be revealed…
Unfortunately Doctor Who: The Edge of Time was a bit of a dud and scored just 4/10 in our review. “I like Doctor Who a lot. As a TV show it’s got all the best things about good entertainment and genuinely has some incredible storylines and messages. Doctor Who: The Edge of Time is not one of them though,” ,” said Jason in his review. “Between sluggish movement and dull puzzles, I think it’s enough to say that even Jodie Whittaker can’t save this game.”
Also revealed was Doctor Who: The Lonely Assassins, a new game for mobile and Switch. For this game you will be heading back to Wester Drumlins, the spooky house from the classic Who episode “Blink”. You get to team up with a familiar face, Petronella Osgood!
