Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock release date

It's about time.

Time-travelling tie-in Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock launches on PlayStation 3 next Wednesday, 23rd May as a digital download from PlayStation Network.

UK gamers will also be able to buy a boxed version of the game, available the following Friday, 25th May, according to the EU PlayStation blog.

Eternity Clock's digital Vita release won't arrive until 13th June, however. When it does launch the two versions will be able to share saves between platforms.

The game follows the Eleventh Doctor and sometimes-companion River Song on a new adventure independent from the TV series.

Both Matt Smith and Alex Kingston have been recruited to voice their characters, while a menagerie of familiar monsters will appear - the Daleks, Cybermen, Silurians and the Silence.

"All in all it's a smart and thoughtful handling of the source material, and one that's born from a passion for the licence at Supermassive", Martin Robinson wrote in Eurogamer's Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock preview last month. "It's a bit low-budget, its sets a little creaky, but it's got some big ideas and an even bigger heart. A little like the show itself, then."

A PC version is set to follow later this year.
