Torchwood game

Torchwood: The Video Game is a video game based off the BBC TV series Torchwood. Torchwood: The Video Game is on the Wii U, Xbox One, PS4 and PC. It is a single or two player third-person game, with puzzle, graphic adventure and action elements.

Torchwood Three

Torchwood: The Video Game's game modes are connected by an overworld. The overworld is Torchwood Three, the torchwood base in Cardiff, built around the Rift.


When you turn on the game, you are sent to the Torchwood Three Hub. You will be spawned by the entrance as the character you were last playing as.

Changing character

Torchwood Three's Holding cells contain every character you have unlocked, minus the character you are playing as. To switch character, you must open a cell and walk into it, and you will change into the character that was in that cell. Once you complete a level, you will unlock both of the playable characters. But, there are some playable characters you need to unlock to play as. To unlock these characters, you must go to Tosh's computer, where characters, alternate costumes and minigames are purchasable through the rift.

Starting gamemodes

Free-play mode is a mode where you can play through any level of Story Mode that you have completed, as any character you have unlocked. Episode mode is a game where you play through every episode of the Torchwood TV series. You can access this mode by reading Ianto's Diary in Jack's office. Story mode is accessed by using the invisible lift.

Story Mode

Story mode is the game's main gamemode containing an all new story. Its' specific place in the Torchwood storyline is unknown, but it is known that the story is set somewhere during season 2, after "Dead Man Walking" and before "Exit Wounds". The game's genre is action shooter, and plays similarly to Dynasty Warriors, with characters facing against waves of monsters, while protecting bases from falling.

The story mode focuses on The Trickster's attack on Torchwood Three, who has fallen through the rift and is now summoning enemies from Torchwood's past and future to destroy Cardiff and the Torchwood Institute.

Playable Characters

You unlock each character after their first playable mission. After they are unlocked, you can play as them in any mission in Free-Play Mode.

Other Game Modes

Free-Play Mode

Free-play mode is a mode where you can play through each level of story mode, as any character you have unlocked, in any skin.

Hoard Mode

A gamemode for up to four players (five on Wii U) where hoards of monsters attack the players. This mode's gameplay is different to Story mode's, as it does not contain bases, and continues until the players die, with score counted by hoards of monsters killed. Every hoard is a group of the same monsters, but the species in each hoard changes after every hoard.


In the Wii U port of the game, the game has compatibility with Amiibo. The game has its' own line of Amiibo, and is compatible with certain Amiibos in the Super Smash Bros. series. Each Amiibo can be used in Story, Hoard and Free-Play modes. When the Amiibo is placed on the gamepad, that character will assist you in battle. They each have two attacks, and will fight on your side until they are killed. After an Amiibo is killed, you cannot use the same specific Amiibo on the gamepad until you have completed the level, or reset to a point in the game before the Amiibo died. You can use another Amiibo of the same character, but not the same exact figure. You cannot place an Amiibo of the character you are playing as.
