Doctor Who fans can step inside a virtual reality version of the show’s title sequence in a new game from the BBC. Doctor Who Time Vortex VR gives players the chance to pilot the TARDIS through the depths of the space-time vortex in a new VR game.

The game is a VR reboot of the successful Time Vortex 360 mobile game released earlier this year. As they speed through time, players will tackle hazards and obstacles emerging from the future ahead of them, and will need to quickly react by physically turning around to evade threats from the past.

As players progress through the game, they are transported into different time zones from past eras, from the current vortex to re-imagined designs from the 1960s and 1980s. The game is available to play using cardboard headsets, Google Daydream, Samsung Gear VR and HTC Vive via your web browser.

However, those without headsets can play the game with mobiles and tablets running newer versions of Android or iOS and the latest versions of Chrome, Firefox or Safari. A full list of all supported devices is available in the FAQ.

To play, fans simply need to visit bbc.in/TimeVortexVR. Like the 360 game, the VR version is an Endless Runner, which gets more and more difficult the longer people play, taking them on a visually intense journey through the iconic vortex from the show’s opening credits.
