Fifth Adventure Game details released

The BBC have today announced details of the fifth Doctor Who Adventure Game. The game, due out sometime in October will be called 'The Gunpowder Plot.' Here's some info:

It's the most ambitious Adventure Game to date and stars Matt Smith as the Doctor, Karen Gillan as Amy and for the first time, Arthur Darvill as Rory Williams. This new, dazzlingly epic story gives you the chance to battle aliens in London, 1605. But as well as extra-terrestrial monsters, you'll meet Guy Fawkes and really get a feel for what was happening at this incendiary moment in Britain's history. It's your chance to virtually step back in time, chat to famous figures and participate in one of the most notorious plots the world has ever known.

As well as all this the game will also see the return of two old enemies. Included with the info there is an early image of what the Guy Fawkes character may look like (below)

The BBC promise that the game will be:

... the most advanced of the Adventure Games so far. Gamers will be able to play as the Doctor, Amy and Rory, exploring the immersive environments of this historic period. The adventure will feature multi-linear gameplay, even more sophisticated puzzles, and a complex lighting system specifically designed to recreate the atmosphere of 17th Century London. And for the very first time, the introduction of portal technology will enable gamers to experience for themselves that the TARDIS really is bigger on the inside ...

Like all the previous games this one will be free to download in the UK.

You can read the full story on the BBC Doctor Who site.

Personally I love historical stuff, so this sounds really good to me. But what do you think? And who do you think those two old enemies could be?
