From today, players can travel across time and space to discover the mystery of the Eternity Clock!
BBC Worldwide Digital Entertainment & Games have now made Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock available for download on PlayStation Network on PlayStation3 globally.
A special game trailer has also been put together, which you can see here:
As regular readers should know by now, the game immerses players in the universe of Doctor Who across 600 years of history and the future. Players take on the roles of the Doctor and River Song as they travel across time and space to save the Earth, and time itself. In order to be successful, they must master the complexities of time travel through exceptional time-based game play – changes made in one time will impact another, creating multiple possibilities and challenging players to solve puzzles across the centuries.
Equipped with the Doctor’s “sonic screwdriver,” River’s “blaster” and other fantastic gadgets, players journey through four London time periods and a number of other-worldly locations in search of answers. With collaborative multiplayer capabilities, players can take part in the game simultaneously across different time periods, facing some of the most fearsome monsters including Silurians, Cybermen, Daleks and the Silence.
Robert Nashak is the EVP Digital Entertainment and Games at BBC Worldwide.
“Doctor Who is such a beloved BBC franchise, and we’re fortunate to work collaboratively with the creative minds behind the TV show, bringing fans an authentic experience in the universe that is Doctor Who.”
The stars of the Doctor Who TV series Matt Smith (the Doctor) and Alex Kingston (River Song) provide voiceovers for the game, and motion capture technology creates in-game character movements to add realism to the ultimate Doctor Who gaming experience.
Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock is available for download on PlayStation Network for the PlayStation 3 in the UK for £13.99, U.S. for $19.99 and across Europe for €17.99, with physical copies available in limited number online. However, here’s the bad news: the PlayStation Vita, like the PC version, will follow later this year – it’s not out today, contrary to what we might have said previously.
(Having tested the PlayStation Vita version already, we can tell you that this is well worth the wait.)
