The PlayStation Vita launches today, and already Epic Games is announcing the first PS Vita game based on Unreal Engine technology — Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock. BBC Worldwide and Supermassive Games will bring the time-bending action game to the Vita in March. A PS3 and PC version is also in the works.
Developed by Supermassive Games, Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock will follow the Time Lord as he attempts to save the universe yet again. The game will include split-screen and 3D camera support.
“Our aim for ‘Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock’ is to match it as closely as possible in aesthetics, tone and sound to the television series, and also to achieve a new level of quality on Sony’s outstanding platforms,” said Jonathan Amor, chief technology officer at Supermassive Games.
Robert Nashak, executive vice president for BBC Worldwide Digital Entertainment, said, “‘Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock’ is the start of a major new gaming development for the Doctor Who brand. ‘Eternity Clock’ will allow players to experience the action, adventure and madness of Doctor Who for themselves on an exciting new game platform that we hope will raise the bar for future games to come.”
