It’s been off our screens for 23 years, but the iconic series, GamesMaster is set to make a return to E4 later this year, in partnership with Oculus Quest 2 from Facebook
The series will see celebrities, gaming stars and super fans all take part in challenges, races and epic fights.
Through virtual battles across a range of games, the competitors will try everything in their power to claim a legendary Golden Joystick Trophy. But whilst they play, they’ll be watched over by the all-knowing GamesMaster, famously portrayed in the original by Sir Patrick Moore.
Now, Sir Trevor McDonald has been confirmed to be taking on the iconic role of the GamesMaster. Sir Trevor said: "I am delighted to be taking on this iconic role for a new generation of viewers."
E4 have now confirmed the all-new presenting line-up for the series, led by Robert Florence, who will also serve as creative consultant on the show. His co-hosts will be esports and gaming host, Frankie Ward and newcomer Ty Logan.
Host, Robert Florence said: “I’m hugely honoured that I’ve been trusted with ushering a new generation of challengers to their glory or humiliation, under the unflinching gaze of the GamesMaster. I look forward to finding out how much I can get away with.”
All episodes will premiere on E4’s YouTube, followed by a linear play on E4.
