The BBC’s flagship sci-fi series Doctor Who will soon stage a crossover with the massively popular multiplayer game EVE Online, the BBC has revealed.
This news comes just as the dust has settled on Doctor Who’s Eve of the Daleks New Year’s Day special – a very different sort of eve that isn’t to be confused with EVE Online!
If you’re not familiar with CCP Games’ EVE Online, it’s described in today’s announcement as a “free-to-play, community-driven spaceship MMO game where players can choose their own path among the stars from countless options. 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.”
The Doctor Who content that is coming to EVE Online will include a “Gallifrey-themed space where players will search for artifacts from Doctor Who’s Great Time War.”
Per the official announcement on the Doctor Who website, these collectables in EVE Online will apparently “provide players with clues to track down the infamous 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.”
Plus, the announcement promises “a login campaign with skill points and Doctor Who-themed items [which] will be available to all players throughout the duration of the event.”
As you can see in the image atop this page, it certainly looks like you’ll be able to dress up your EVE Online avatar in some very Doctor-ish outfits if you take part in this event.
