HTC has partnered with BBC Studios to mark the launch of its new VIVE Cosmos PC-based Virtual Reality system with a preview of the new Doctor Who VR game, The Edge of Time.
Running this weekend (Friday 27th and Saturday 28th September) at the Protein Studios experience in Hackney, the experience allows fans to become fully immersed in the sci-fi show’s world.
Attendees will be amongst the first to try ‘Doctor Who: The Edge of Time’, produced by Maze Theory for BBC Studios, and have the chance to take up the role of the Doctor’s assistant.
After stepping into the TARDIS, players will interact with the Doctor themselves and will try to pilot the spacecraft – which is temperamental at the best of times – before embarking on an epic adventure to solve the mystery behind the ‘Reality Virus’.
During the event, visitors will use HTC’s newly released VR headset, the VIVE Cosmos, which is built to be the highest performance and most versatile headset on the market.
Fans can turn up on the day to secure a walk-in slot (subject to availability). Please note, players must be aged 12+.
