Doctor Who VR Trailer Promises Timey Wimey Adventure With Thirteenth
BBC has released our first look at the upcoming Doctor Who VR adventure game with a new trailer. Whovians will be able to participate in a 13-minute VR episode with the Thirteenth Doctor, voiced by Jodie Whittaker herself.
According to the official description for Doctor Who: The Runaway, players will be armed with a sonic screwdriver and it is up to them to help the Doctor solve the crisis at hand. The synopsis states:
“Youâ€™ve been in a collision. You wake inside the TARDIS. The Doctor introduces you to the person, or thing, you collided with. Heâ€™s a strange and magnificent ball of living energy called Volta. Part surly teenager, part bomb, Volta is very unstable. In fact, heâ€™s primed to explode. Big time.
Unless he can be returned to his home planet, sharpish. The problem is, a squad of galactic busybodies has other plans for Volta. Bad ones. Drawn into a frantic chase, you become the Doctorâ€™s unlikely assistant as she races against time to get Volta home to his parents.”
However, fans might be disappointed to hear that the specific platforms and release date for Doctor Who: The Runaway have not been revealed as of yet. BBC only confirmed that it will premiereÂ at the 2019 Tribeca Film FestivalÂ and that it will be available “on selected VR headsets in the coming months”.
Despite the visuals looking pretty underwhelming (like an unfinished animated short), it’s not every day that fans get to explore the interior of the TARDIS (it’s bigger on the inside!).
The Doctor Who franchise is not known for having good video game adaptations, the most ambitious of which was Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock for the PS3 and PC developed by Supermassive Games (best known for PS4 exclusive Until Dawn). Originally released in 2012, it was poorly received and plans for sequels were immediately scrapped.
