Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock Coming To PS3, PC, PS Vita
Today BBC Worldwide Digital Entertainment and Games announced the first in a series of Doctor Who console games. Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock will arrive on the PS3, PlayStation Vita, and PC in early 2012.
In Eternity Clock, players step into the shoes of the Doctor and River Song. They must travel through time and space in order to save the Earth. Your actions in one time will affect another. This allows players to solve puzzles across multiple eras.
The BBC is trying to make the game as authentic as possible. The stars of the television series, Matt Smith (the Doctor) and Alex Kingston (River Song), will provide voiceover for their characters in the game. The characters are all motion-captured, as well. The new storyline is being written in collaboration with the team responsible for the show.
"We’re creating these new games for Playstation 3 and Vita with adaptations that will bring the wonder, adventure and madness of Doctor Who to each platform," said Robert Nashak, EVP of Digital Entertainment at BBC Worldwide. "Working with a top-tier UK development partner like Supermassive Games demonstrates BBC Worldwide’s commitment to create world-class Doctor Who games for fans of the show and gamers alike."
The BBC plans to release at least two additional Doctor Who games. More details will be announced next year.
