Having already achieved great popularity in the UK, the BBC's Doctor Who Adventure Games series is to get an international release.
BBC Interactive editor Iain Tweedale confirmed to Digital Spy that City of the Daleks, the first release in the gaming series, will be rolled out on third-party gaming sites” internationally in July. Subsequent games will be released on a monthly basis.
Unlike in the UK where the games are free, overseas players will be required to pay a small fee” to download it.
It was always intended to be a bit later. In the US the series is running a few weeks behind the UK, so that kind of fits nicely,” Tweedale stated.
But there are some key events happening in the US that we will probably launch it around, big gaming events, and so that's sort of the thinking there. But we obviously wanted to have it as close as we could between the two.”
City of the Daleks, was downloaded an impressive 500,000 times in its first two weeks of release. The next instalment, Blood of the Cybermen, will be released following the broadcast of the final show in the current TV series this Saturday, June 26th.
