As the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary celebrations continue, BBC Worldwide, Tiny Rebel Games and Seed Studio have now announced a new, free mobile game called Doctor Who: legacy is all set to be released on Wednesday, November 27th.
The 11th (or is it 12th?) Doctor’s regeneration is approaching fast. 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” says Lee Cummings, Creative Director and Co-Founder of Tiny Rebel Games.
Build a team of your favourite companions and allies drawn from the extensive and illustrious history of the show; face the Doctor’s most notorious enemies; and relive the Doctor’s greatest triumphs. Doctor Who: Legacy will launch with episodes and characters from the most recent two seasons of the show. Season 5 will be released as further free to play content in the New Year as we go backwards through fifty beloved years of Doctor Who lore.
Now, being honest here. There's already a few BBC mobile games out there that exist for Doctor Who and Torchwood but historically, they've never really been that great. Doctor Who: Legacy though, could be the one to change that bit if history as the game promises to be 'Visually striking, with meticulous attention to character detail' and feast for the eyes of any Doctor Who fan, of which there is many.
The game 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. Absolutely fantastic, is all I have to say for now.
