Technology company HTC and BBC Studios are putting together a special two-day event for Doctor Who fans at Protein Studios in East London next week. Visitors will see a full-size TARDIS on display outside the venue, while inside they can use HTC’s newly released VR headset, the VIVE Cosmos, to play a new game based on the show called Doctor Who: The Edge of Time.
Attendees can book free 30-minute slots to play Doctor Who: The Edge of Time, produced by Maze Theory for BBC Studios. Each 30-minute slot will include a 15-minute ‘experience’, allowing players the chance to take up the role of the Doctor’s companion. This will see them step into the TARDIS, interact with the Doctor as fly away on an adventure to solve the mystery behind the ‘Reality Virus’.
The event takes place on Friday and Saturday, September 27 and 28. Three attendees can take part at any one time, with a demonstration booth given over to each. Players must be aged 12+.
Tickets to the event are sold out – but if you don’t have tickets, you can still come see the full-size TARDIS and ask if they can squeeze you in. Slots are held for ticket holders five minutes after their booked start time, after which time they will be re-allocated.
Doctor Who: The Edge of Time was scheduled to be released this month. However with six days remaining in the month of September, there is no word yet as to when the game will actually be available.
Yeh that’s right. We’re going to announce a new launch date soon. Please bare with us, and thanks for your patience. We just want to make sure we make the best game we can.
