Following up their announcement earlier this month, BBC will be releasing Doctor Who: Legacy this week for Android and iOS devices.
Doctor Who: Legacy celebrates the fiftieth anniversary of the popular sci-fi show and will be free-to-play. The game has been developed by Tiny Rebel Games and Seed Studio, and will feature role-playing, along with puzzel solving aspects.
“The 11th (or is it 12th?) Doctor’s regeneration is approaching fast,” said Tiny Rebel Games creative director and co-founder Lee Cummings in a statement. “With decades of epic adventures to draw from, Doctor Who: Legacy is a loving homage created by loyal Whovians, and is rich in the show’s creative legacy and fun. Combining easy to learn, hard to master mechanics with beloved characters and cunning villains, Doctor Who: Legacy will be a treat for fans, casual players and even the most hard-core gamers alike.”
According to a report by MCV, Doctor Who: Legacy is going to start with content from “episodes and characters” found in seasons six and seven. The game will be available for download on November 27 and is said to go in reverse chronological order, seemingly all the way back to the 1960s.
Additional free content has been promised from Season 5 to be available next year. Additionally, Doctor Who: legacy will also feature a new score by acclaimed video game composer Chris Huelsbeck as well as the iconic theme song from the show as recorded by Murray Gold.
