Doctor Who will receive the video game treatment again next year as a new game has been announced for PC and consoles.
Doctor Who: The Edge Of Reality is a follow-up to the VR-based Doctor Who: The Edge Of Time, and is again being developed by Maze Theory. The game is expected to arrive in Spring 2021 for PC, PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
The story will feature both the 13th Doctor, Jodie Whittaker, and the 10th Doctor, David Tennant. Both actors will be returning to reprise their roles with full voice acting. Many classic Doctor Who villains will also be included, such as the Cybermen, Daleks and Weeping Angels, with more enemies that are yet to be revealed.
A brief teaser trailer gave a glimpse to some of the worlds players will encounter, as well as the design for classic series villains. The trailer ends with David Tennant’s Doctor making an appearance and revealing his role within the game.
