'Peaky Blinders: The King's Ransom' Gets Meta Quest 2 and PICO 4 Release Date - Screens & Trailer

Peaky Blinders: The King's Ransom is a dark action-adventure VR game where you infiltrate their criminal underworld, earn the Shelbys’ trust and prove you have what it takes to join their brutal back-street gang.

Peaky Blinders fans and VR enthusiasts can – for the first time – infiltrate the Peaky Blinders underground world, coming face-to-face with much-loved and much-feared characters such as Tommy Shelby (voiced by Cillian Murphy) and Arthur Shelby (voiced by Paul Anderson), as well as host of other brand-new characters. 

Step into the gritty streets of 1920s Birmingham and London and explore iconic locations from the show, including The Garrison pub, Charlie’s Yard and Shelby’s Betting Shop, as you take down rivals and move up in the world.

The game is an authentic, embodied experience set in an atmospheric 1920s England. Players will choose their path in moments of subversion, wish fulfilment, narrative intrigue, and gripping set pieces, to see how the story will play out. Life in the world of the Peaky Blinders is full of opportunity – and risk. With loyalties, reputations and lives on the line, immerse yourself in dramatic action, engage in thrilling visceral combat and make gut-wrenching moral choices.

On the run from the firing squad, you turn to the infamous Tommy Shelby for help, and soon find yourself at war once again. Your only hope at redemption is to defeat the odds and win at any cost… BY ORDER OF THE PEAKY BLINDERS.


Maze Theory is excited to announce its forthcoming VR narrative adventure game Peaky Blinders: The King’s Ransom will launch on Meta Quest 2 and PICO 4 on 9th March 2023.

The news comes as the studio lifted the lid on the game’s latest cinematic trailer last night at the 40th Golden Joystick Awards in London, with the video spot casting light on the world-famous TV series’ debut on VR, as well as the talents of the show’s stars Cillian Murphy and Paul Anderson reprising their roles as the brothers Thomas and Arthur Shelby. 

“The clock is ticking and the launch of Peaky Blinders’ TV series debut on VR is fast approaching,” says Tim Jones, Game Director at Maze Theory. “For fans of action-adventure and crime drama, Peaky Blinders: The King's Ransom allows players to explore the gritty streets of 1920s Birmingham in an authentic Peaky Blinders virtual reality experience inspired by the hit TV drama series. We think this new trailer will give players an exciting glimpse of what’s to come in March”
