BBC interactive has announced that they will finally be releasing the first installment of Doctor Who: The Adventure Games internationally in July. The episodes will be available through third party game sites in exchange for a small fee.
The first game, City of the Daleks, has proven very popular in the UK, with over 500,000 downloads in the first 12 days. Doctor Who: The Adventure Games features the vocal talents of Matt Smith and Karen Gillan as the Doctor and Amy, and Nicholas Briggs as various monsters.
BBC Interactive editor Iain Tweeddale commented:
“It was always intended to be a bit later. So in the US the series is running a few weeks behind the UK, so that kind of fits nicely.
“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.”
The second episode, Blood of the Cybermen, is available to download for free in the UK right now!
