'Peaky Blinders: The King's Ransom' Is Coming To PICO 4 Next-Generation VR Headset - Screens

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 will be bringing Peaky Blinders: The King’s Ransom to the newly announced PICO 4 next-generation, all in-one VR headset.

With its launch freshly announced today, PICO 4 aims to make VR accessible to everyone by combining comfort and performance. 

Key Features:

  • Intense and Dramatic Action - Dramatic cinematic moments put players at the heart of a deep and memorable story, where they will navigate tense and dangerous situations. They must make meaningful and complex moral choices to earn their place in the Peaky Blinders, forming bonds with – and making allies of – Thomas and Arthur Shelby to take down rivals. 
  • Reactive and Believable Characters - Players will come face to face with iconic characters, delivering compelling dramatic performances, and will get drawn into encounters that are engaging and believable as they navigate the dangerous and treacherous world of Peaky Blinders.
  • Immersive Peaky Blinders World - Environments from the show are authentically recreated and can be freely explored. This includes iconic locations such as the Garrison Pub, Charlie’s Yard and Shelby’s Betting Shop. With the world of Limehouse 1928 recreated with original spaces, there will be opportunities to unlock easter eggs from the show, discover character histories and unveil a troubled past. 

Peaky Blinders: The King’s Ransom is coming to Oculus Quest, PICO 4 and other unspecified VR headsets in 2022.
