Peaky Blinders fans might want to grab a VR headset, as a new game set in the show’s world is coming to Steam and Meta-Quest store later this year.
The new virtual reality experience (developed by Maze Theory) is called Peaky Blinders: The King’s Ransom, and it will put players at the heart of the depiction of the 1920s Birmingham series. Check out the trailer below:
In The King’s Ransom, players will take on the role of a new character who has been on the run from the firing squad for over a decade. To continue to evade capture, this unnamed individual turns to the infamous Tommy Shelby (played by Cillian Murphy) for help.
As a result of this encounter, players will find themselves in a new kind of warfare as we delve deep into the criminal underworld and face “harrowing moral choices” in a quest to stay alive.
We don’t have a lot of specific gameplay details right now, but Maze Theory has promised that players will be able to freely explore known locations in the game. hit tv show. This includes The Garrison pub, Charlie’s Yard and Shelby’s Betting Shop.
Players can also look forward to interacting with fan-favorite characters from the show, including Arthur Shelby (voiced by Paul Anderson), as well as new faces created just for this story.
As players get to know these characters, they’ll want to think about how they interact with them, as Maze Theory has plans to implement a new type of AI system. This feature will react to player actions, so you may find NPCs become less friendly if you don’t side with them.
The game’s Steam page also mentions that the title includes “frequent violence” and “visceral combat”. This, as well as what we’ve seen on the show, leads us to believe that we may be getting in on some action-fueled gunfights, though we’ll have to wait for more details on that front.
There is currently no confirmed release date other than a vague promise of sometime in 2022, nor do we have a price for the game yet. But we know that the game will be released on Meta-Quest 2, HTC Viveand valve index thanks to a Metablog post and the Steam Store Page.
