There's a Peaky Blinders VR game in the works
Fans of Birmingham, hats, misdeeds, and virtual reality should assume the brace position immediately; BBC 2’s Cillian-Murphy-starring historical crime drama Peaky Blinders is being turned into a VR game, set to release next year.
Peaky Blinders’ transition to the world of gaming is being handled by developer (and “immersive entertainment studio”) Maze Theory, and casts players as a member of the titular street gang. The experience will be built around a “covert and unorthodox mission” to defeat a rival group, and promises to include familiar faces and places from the TV show.
“Come face-to-face with new and well-known characters, explore iconic locations in Small Heath, such as the Shelby’s illegal betting shop, and be able to raise a virtual glass of Irish whiskey in The Garrison Pub”, teases the announcement’s accompanying press release.
