The BBC has announced on it's 'Doctor Who' website that a new 'Adventure Game' will be released in October. This will be the first release since 'The Shadows of the Vashta Nerada' from last year.

The new game will be based on the story of Guy Fawkes and his gunpowder plot in 1650. The plot was an assassination attempt of James the 1st.

The game will be the first game to work in conjunction with BBC Learning.


For more information about the future release you can see the story here:

As usual the game will be free to the UK while we in the US (and other countries) will have to wait until later.
