Following the recent BBC debut of "The Day of the Doctor," and continuing the 50th anniversary celebration of all things Doctor Who, comes the November 27 launch of the free-to-play Doctor Who: Legacy.

Available exclusively on iOS and Android, Legacy allows players to build a team of their favorite companions and allies from the extensive history of Doctor Who. You'll use this team to battle the series' most famous enemies and relive the Doctor's greatest moments.

While that premise sounds like the sort of thing a Who fan would adore, keep in mind that not all of the game's content will be available at launch. On debut, the game will cover the most recent two seasons of Doctor Who. From there the development team will work backwards in time to add more content to Doctor Who: Legacy.

Today's announcement mentions that content from season five of the modern Doctor Who series will be available for free at some point near the beginning of 2014. It's currently unknown what price points will be attached to further content releases.
