'Peaky Blinders: Mastermind' (ALL) Gets Release Date, Available For Pre-Order - Trailer

Peaky Blinders: Mastermind is a puzzle-adventure game, based on the multi-award-winning TV show.

Welcome to Birmingham, during the aftermath of the Great War. Set right before the events of Season One, Peaky Blinders: Mastermind lets you join the Shelby family's criminal gang. Follow the rise of Tommy as he successfully uncovers a sinister plot to put the family out of business, proving himself worthy of being the true mastermind of the Peaky Blinders.

Mastermind refers to Tommy's ability to plan complex scenarios in his head. As the player, you get to exercise this power by taking control of key members of the Shelby family including Tommy, Arthur, Polly and more. Players must plan and enact strategies by taking direct control of key members of the Shelby family simultaneously over the same timeline, moving characters into position at exactly the right moment in order to navigate challenging scenarios. 

In Peaky Blinders: Mastermind, players will be able to freely set and rewind each character's path in order to tune all of their actions for perfect coordination, tactically utilizing characters and stealth to solve increasingly complex puzzles. It’s a bold take on the series that suitably impressed the show’s distributor Endemol Shine.

According to James Marsden, Game Director at FuturLab, the game is a creative interpretation of the world the TV show has created, “It's been an honour to be trusted with the Peaky Blinders license,” says Marsden. “our team has created a game that reflects the heart of what makes the show compelling: Tommy Shelby's ability to manipulate friends, family and foes in the pursuit of his master plan.”

Anil Mistry, Director of Gaming & ECommerce, ESG said "We are thrilled to be partnering with Curve and FuturLab in making the first official Peaky Blinders game. Futurlab has faithfully re-created the Peaky Blinders’ universe and having Cillian provide the voiceover adds a real sense of authenticity to this game. Hopefully, fans of the show and gamers alike will be excited to get their thinking caps on and enjoy this compelling puzzle adventure like no other."

Interested fans can pre-order Peaky Blinders: Mastermind on Xbox One and PC (Steam).

Key Features:

  • TRUE TO THE TV SHOW: Take control of Tommy, Arthur, Polly, John, Ada and Finn as they navigate through familiar locations including The Garrison Tavern, Charlie Strong’s Yard, Shelby Parlour and more.
  • THE RISE OF TOMMY: When a Peaky Blinder is implicated in the murder of a Chinese opium dealer, Tommy embarks on a mission to find out the truth, slowly growing into the true Peaky Blinders' Mastermind.
  • BECOME THE MASTERMIND: Exercise Tommy's power to plan complex scenarios in his head, by taking control of each key member of the Shelby family and perform their actions in parallel.
  • MANIPULATE TIME: Each character’s actions are automatically logged in a timeline which you can freely reset, fast-forward and rewind, until the plan is perfectly adjusted.
  • STEALTH AND STRATEGY: Each mission is an increasingly complex puzzle to be solved undetected and on time. Choose the right characters and abilities to coordinate and execute the optimum plan.

FuturLab has collaborated with Feverist, the U.K. art-rock band who were involved in the soundtrack to Peaky Blinders Series 1, to create an original bespoke soundtrack for the game. They are revealing tomorrow the single Reveller from the upcoming soundtrack album, as well as The Secret featured in the reveal trailer.

Peaky Blinders Season 5 is available from today on Netflix in the UK. The season launched on BBC One in autumn 2019 to its highest ratings yet.

Peaky Blinders: Mastermind is in development for Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One and PC (Steam), scheduled for August 20, 2020.
