Oculus reveals the first look of the TARDIS in Doctor Who: The Edge of Time. Fans can play the upcoming feature-length VR game, published by PlayStack and developed by Maze Theory under license from BBC Studios, at SDCC this month.

Oculus and BBC Studios are proud to bring a new cinematic, feature-length Doctor Who VR video game to San Diego Comic-Con. Fans will be the first in the US to play Doctor Who: The Edge of Time at the BBC AMERICA Booth (#4129), including a sneak, peek of the iconic TARDIS and brand-new title sequence created just for the game.

Revealed today, the TARDIS showcases the painstaking attention to detail and incredible authenticity that Maze Theory is bringing to the Doctor Who universe, in close collaboration with the production team at BBC Studios. A first for the beloved sci-fi IP, fans will co-pilot the TARDIS with the Doctor (voiced by Jodie Whittaker), exploring every nook and cranny and travelling across space and time to a series of wondrous locations, all within virtual reality.

Visiting the Doctor Who set in Cardiff earlier this year, Maze Theory set out to create the most authentic and lifelike version of the TARDIS in a videogame to date. It required taking hundreds of photographs, using a technique called photogrammetry, to create a hyper-accurate digital reference of the iconic spaceship.

The team’s 3D artists, designers, sound and software engineers brought the TARDIS to life in a process taking over 1200 hours. The precise function of the controls are true to the show, all behaving exactly as they do on screen. To complete the experience – fans can access the infamous custard cream biscuit dispenser.

Published by PlayStack and developed by Maze Theory under license from BBC Studios, Doctor Who: The Edge of Time launches for all high-end VR platforms in September 2019. Explore the TARDIS and universe of Doctor Who without limitations, as the game will also be available on Oculus Quest – the next generation in untethered VR.

Maze Theory’s Creative Director Marcus Moresby said: “The TARDIS is a very important and hugely iconic element of the show and Doctor Who: The Edge of Time offers the chance to experience it like never before. It’s been a huge undertaking to deliver the very best TARDIS experience and is much anticipated by fans of the show. We know they’re going to love it.”
