BBC Studios has announced that the Doctor has landed in the popular online video game Fortnite.

Players will take on new adventures, missions and battles, while exploring iconic locations from the Whoniverse, all on a brand-new Doctor Who island within the game.

When the mysterious Reality Virus causes the TARDIS to appear on the island, players must help repair it by finding the parts to fix the Dynamorphic generators.

 

The game starts on the TARDIS Landing Site where players will find the TARDIS and start their quest to gather the Dynamorphic Generator Crystals from around the hub island in order to repair it. Special rewards and surprises will keep players on their toes along the way. 

From the TARDIS Landing Site, head to one of the remaining four locations. Travel to Kerblam! on the moon of Kandoka to experience box fighting like never before, with the Kerblam Man looking on.

On the Escape Map, players must escape the QuadZone Rescue Space Craft while stopping the destructive Pting, an alien that is causing chaos by eating the ship’s systems. As the self-destruct sequence has been initiated players must find all 10 mechanical parts to repair the Life Pod and escape.

The Reality Virus has caused many realities to coexist on Gallifrey. On the Rumble Map players will choose a team and their weapon loadout to fight for either the Time Lords or the Daleks in an all-out battle.

 

Mat Way, Global Director, Gaming & Interactive at BBC Studios, said: 

Developing an island in Fortnite is new territory for Doctor Who and we’re excited to welcome the game’s established players into the Whoniverse. This is a great opportunity to introduce a gaming audience to Doctor Who and also for the existing community to experience a brand-new adventure. Players can expect a fast-paced, unpredictable journey with familiar friends and foes making appearances along the way.

For those interested in learning more about the Doctor’s world, they can head to the Doctor Who Museum. Here there’s more info about the famous friends and foes of the Doctor, including the Cybermen, Daleks, Weeping Angels, K9 and the TARDIS.

Players can visit the Doctor Who island for free by downloading Fortnite on their preferred device or console. From the main menu, change game mode, select “Island Code” and enter code 3610-1396-4646. The Doctor Who Island is available for Fortnite players to discover and explore.

 CCP Games)<\/a>

CCP Games and BBC Studios have announced an original crossover event between  Doctor Who and the free-to-play deep space-faring MMO EVE Online.

Universes will collide as Capsuleers and Doctor Who fans face the Daleks together in massive space battles in EVE Online x Doctor Who starting 13 January until 1 February.

EVE Online is a free-to-play, community-driven spaceship MMO game where players can choose their own path among the stars from countless options, developed by CCP Games in Reykjavik.

The game first launched in 2003 and has since gained recognition for its scale, complexity, and the world record-breaking exploits of its online community. EVE Online is one of the most critically acclaimed MMORPG intellectual properties (IPs) in time and space, and one of the most extensive works of science fiction in the world.

Bergur Finnbogason, EVE Online’s Creative Director said

2022 will be off to an (inter)stellar start with EVE Online x Doctor Who, We are always pushing the boundaries of what is possible in EVE Online. Collaborating with BBC Studios gives us the opportunity to pay homage to an iconic series that has inspired us at CCP. We hope you’ll join us in New Eden on January 13 to see what happens when galaxies collide!

Kevin Jorge, Senior Producer at BBC Studios added

EVE Online x Doctor Who not only brings two iconic universes together, but also the passionate Whovians with the just-as-passionate pilots of New Eden. By bringing the fanbases together, the already massive battles of EVE Online are sure to become even more explosive. Only time will tell if New Eden’s fiercest pilots have what it takes to challenge the might of the Daleks.

EVE Online x Doctor Who introduces new, Gallifrey-themed space where players will search for artifacts from Doctor Who’s Great Time War. The artifacts will provide players with clues to track down the Daleks and face them in an interstellar battle of the ages. Players who survive the fight will reap unique rewards that they can take back to New Eden. Additionally, a login campaign with skill points and Doctor Who-themed items will be available to all players throughout the duration of the event.

EVE Online can be downloaded for free by visiting eveonline.com<\/a>
