Initially targeting launch in September, upcoming VR game Doctor Who: The Edge of Time finally has a firm release date.

Developed by Maze Theory, a UK-based studio led by former Activision and PlayStation veterans, the fully interactive VR game is officially launching on November 12th via the PlayStation Store (PSVR), Steam (Vive, Rift), the Oculus Store (Rift, Quest), and Viveport (Cosmos, Rift, Vive).

Here’s how Maze Theory and publisher PlayStack describe it:

The Doctor has been hurled through time to the end of the universe. A virus that threatens to rip apart reality itself has been unleashed. Players can pilot the TARDIS on a journey across worlds both familiar and strange to recover a series of powerful time crystals that can repair spacetime and ultimately, save the universe itself.

Maze Theory reveals in a recent dev vlog that the VR game includes several sections inspired by genres such as adventure, puzzle, and horror, while putting heavy emphasis on object interaction, problem solving, and visual atmosphere.

The game also features the voice of the Thirteenth Doctor (Jodie Whittaker) and Nicholas Briggs as the voice of the Daleks. Digital Producer for Doctor Who and author Gavin Collinson is behind the game’s story.
