After missing its launch window of Spring 2021, the upcoming Doctor Who: The Edge of Reality from developer Maze Theory will now be launching for Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S on September 30.
The game is said to be a reimagining of the previously released Doctor Who: The Edge of Time, a VR only title. As for this entry, it will see the adventure take place with the 13th Doctor, played by Jodie Whittaker, and the 10th Doctor, portrayed by David Tennant, who will be accompanying you for the ride.
With the new instalment, players can expect to find "brand-new gameplay, new monsters and new worlds to explore", as they "wield the sonic screwdriver on a quest to save the universe". Fan favourite baddies will also returning, including the terrifying Weeping Angels and the deadly Cybermen.
- CONSOLE AND PC: Compatible with current and next-generation consoles as well as PC, Doctor Who: The Edge of Reality features new worlds to explore, new puzzles, new challenges and new gameplay.
- 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.
The latest trailer doesn't give us much of an indication of what to expect in terms of gameplay, which is admittedly a little concerning considering the game is just over two months away. Since it's a reimagining, we expect it won't be drastically different to the VR experience, which was built around exploration and puzzle solving. No doubt we'll (hopefully) get a good look before it finally launches this September.
