‘Peaky Blinders VR’ to Release on Quest 2 and Pico 4 in March 2023


Maze Theory today announced that its long-awaited Peaky Blinders VR game is officially set to launch on March 9th, 2023.

Called Peaky Blinders: The King’s Ransom, the dark action-adventure game is set to release on Meta Quest 2 and Pico 4. The studio is also slated to release the game on SteamVR headsets, however the studio hasn’t mentioned launch timing for PC VR platforms yet.

Peaky Blinders: The King’s Ransom puts you on the gritty streets of 1920s Birmingham and London as you explore iconic locations from the show, including The Garrison pub, Charlie’s Yard and Shelby’s Betting Shop.

“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,” the game’s official website says.

    This looks like it might be good. I kind of wished I had watched the show now.

    What I’m really waiting for is Maze Theory’s next Doctor Who game, Edge of Reality. Hopefully, they use he new-ish Doctor, David Tennant.

      I don’t think David Tennant is PC enough now to be used.

      • Tommy

        He is actually the current doctor. Jodie Whitaker turned into Tennant.

    I’ll wait for the PC version. It looks very interesting, I hope it will be good.

  • NL_VR

    even in early gameplay this game looks good.
    looks like the devs actually tries to make a game that also is polished… looking forward and if i get it i will get it on PC or PSVR2

  • namekuseijin

    it looks good, but the action itself is pretty arcadey, wave-shooter fare…
