We weren’t too enamoured with Doctor Who: The Edge of Time when it released on VR platforms in 2019.
Closing his review, Chris McMullen wrote “Doctor Who: The Edge of Time has flashes of excellence and, if you’re a hardcore Doctor Who fan, you’ll get something out of it. But for a show that’s had this long a run, there’s really nothing remarkable about Doctor Who: The Edge of Time.” Released today for non-VR formats, however, Doctor Who: The Edge of Time has been renamed. The first-person narrative adventure is now Doctor Who: The Edge of Reality.
Aside from the new name, and the fact that it can now be on more formats due to not requiring a VR headset, there’s also new content to be found within Doctor Who: The Edge of Reality. The press release states that it expands upon the thrilling VR experience, featuring new monsters, worlds and gameplay. The story, written by Gavin Collinson, has also been reimagined and expanded.
Doctor Who: The Edge of Reality is available now on PS4, Xbox One and PC. And, thanks to backwards compatibility, also PS5 and Xbox Series X/S. A Switch release is planned as well, but has been delayed to 28th October to allow for more testing.
For those who like their experiences to be a little more definitive, there’s a digital deluxe edition of Doctor Who: The Edge of Reality on offer alongside the bog-standard one. It features a wealth of additional content, including the Sonic Screwdrivers of the ninth to twelfth Doctors, and the gloves of River Song, Cyberman and more. The standard edition is priced at £19.99, and the digital deluxe edition £24.99.
