BBC Worldwide launches 'Doctor Who' game

MUMBAI: BBC Worldwide‘s division BBC Worldwide Digital Entertainment and Games has announced the official launch of Doctor Who: Worlds in Time, the first browser-based, free-to-play multiplayer online game based on the television series ‘Doctor Who‘.

Created in partnership with Three Rings, the developer of persistent online worlds Puzzle Pirates and Spiral Knights, the game transports fans and gamers alike on a journey throughout the boundless Doctor Who universe.

Doctor Who: Worlds in Time aims to offer something for everyone, including an intriguing narrative for sci-fi followers and serious gamers and stimulating missions for game enthusiasts looking for a quick pick-up-and-play game.

After preparing the Tardis, players travel to various immersive worlds (including Ember, Mars and New New York) and work together to defend civilisation against infamous villains (including the Weeping Angels, Cybermen, Daleks, Autons, Oods and Zygons) bent on creating chaos and destruction in the universe.

Since the open preview launch in December 2011, the BBC and Three Rings have worked to make more Doctor Who environments available, as well as introduce additional virtual items and create deeply engaging communal features.

BBC Worldwide Digital Entertainment and Games executive VP Robert Nashak said, “We’ve developed Worlds in Time with the goal of becoming the largest online community for Doctor Who fans, while also being a fun, compelling and immersive gateway into the world of Doctor Who for all gamers”.

While Doctor Who: Worlds in Time is free-to-play, players can enrich their gameplay and hasten their progress through the purchase of Chronons, which help them to customise their avatars, complete mini-games, build new contraptions and more.

Three Rings Design CEO Daniel James said, "I have been a fan of Doctor Who since I was a child, so developing this game with BBC Worldwide is a dream come true. Like the Doctor, we have our own mission, to provide Doctor Who fans an experience matched only by the wondrous TV series, and casual gamers a warm opportunity to discover the marvelous world for themselves. It‘s exciting to see the Doctor Who universe come to life in such a unique way."
