Second ‘Doctor Who’ game episode dated
The second episode in the Doctor Who: The Adventure Games series has been given a release date.
It will be available for free on the BBC website from June 26 after the airing of the show’s series finale.
Titled Blood Of The Cybermen, it will follow the Doctor as he travels to an Arctic base that has uncovered a mysterious secret.
“From the intriguing title, through the pre-credits intro to the mystery surrounding the Arctic base, this is everything you expect from a TV episode – only this time you control the action,” explained writer Phil Ford.
“It’s an epic story, and one we could only tell in a computer game. We’ve ambitious sets, a thrill-a-minute narrative, and we reintroduce a Doctor Who adversary not seen since the Tom Baker era.”
The episode has been developed by Sumo Digital in collaboration with Broken Sword developer Charles Cecil.
The first episode has received over half a million download requests in its first 12 days of availability.
