Enter the dark side with ‘The King’s Ransom’: Gangster Drama Peaky Blinders arrives on Meta Quest 2

Maze Theory, who previously released the game Doctor Who: The Edge of Time on the Meta Quest platform, worked closely with the Peaky Blinders production team to faithfully recreate the world and characters from the dark crime drama.

As a player, you enter the world of English crime, where the constant struggle between enemy factions for the valuable box is ongoing. Each group wants it for power, money, and the chance to destroy the country. You must be alert and agile, as tensions between the gangs escalate quickly into intense combat. You’ll work alongside Peaky Blinders boss, Tommy Shelby, his impulsive brother Arthur (Paul Anderson), and other well-known characters, as enemy factions draw near to steal the box themselves. King’s Ransom also includes several iconic locations from the series that you can explore freely during the game.
Peaky Blinders: The King’s Ransom is a game that will certainly attract fans of the series and action game enthusiasts. Players will have the opportunity to feel like gang members and participate in one of the biggest heists in English criminal history. Will they be able to get the Red Box and get out unscathed? You’ll only find out by playing Peaky Blinders: The King’s Ransom.
