Worlds in Time to be Cross-Platform MMO?
Further details about the upcoming Doctor Who MMORPG (basically an online role playing game similar in style to World of Warcraft) titled Worlds in Time have been released by developers Three Rings!
The game, which will surely prove to be popular for fans and non-fans alike, the game will see the player fully immersed in the Whoniverse and all that that entails.
MMORPG’s basically enable a player to create an avatar to represent them in a game, they then have a free roaming world within which to interact with other players and computer controlled characters as well. Star Wars and Lord of the Rings have had some successful games like this that they have released in the past and it’s about time that Doctor Who joined the gang!
The game is in its early stages and details are being kept under wraps at the moment but this much was announced:
“In the game, players from around the world will be able to follow in the steps of the brilliant Doctor by travelling through time and space, exploring new worlds and encountering many alien races, both friend and foe…the game allows players to enter the TARDIS and be set a challenge by the mysterious Time Lord to help him defend civilized culture against infamous Doctor Who enemies.”
Interestingly, Three Rings are currently listing an Engineer’s role specifically for this game on their website which reveals:
Doctor Who: Worlds in Time is an Adobe Flash-based MMO game being developed in conjunction with BBC Worldwide. The game is based on the successful UK sci-fi series, Doctor Who.
Three Rings engineers have the opportunity to participate across all levels of the game creation process and to work on a wide variety of different types of games, from 3D MMOs to Flash games, from the PC to tablets and phones.
So as you can see, there is a possibility that Worlds in Time will be cross-platform!
Either way, this is going to be a very exciting release and one that all gaming fans and Doctor Who fans are going to want to be involved in; as we know more details we’ll let you know.
