Infiltrate their criminal underworld, earn the Shelbys’ trust, and prove you have what it takes to join one of the most powerful British gangs of all-time in Peaky Blinders: The King’s Ransom, a dark action-adventure coming to the Quest platform later this year.

Peaky Blinders: The King’s Ransom is the first VR game inspired by the award-winning gangster drama starring Cillian Murphy as gang leader Tommy Shelby. Set in the lawless streets of 1920s Birmingham, life in the world of the Peaky Blinders is full of opportunity – and risk.

When The King’s Ransom launches on the Quest Platform, Peaky Blinders fans will come face-to-face with notorious crime boss Tommy Shelby (voiced by Cillian Murphy), and his hot-headed brother Arthur (voiced by Paul Anderson). With loyalties, reputations, and lives on the line, how far will you go to earn your place in their brutal back-street gang? Peaky Blinders: The King’s Ransom promises to be a darkly thrilling and intense experience, just like the show it’s based on.

“For the first time, fans will have access to believable and responsive characters from Peaky Blinders, coming face-to-face with Tommy Shelby and encountering first-hand some terrifying situations,” said Ian Hambleton, CEO at developer Maze Theory. “It’s an intense and thrilling experience. We’re very excited to be giving fans and VR enthusiasts access to the Peaky Blinders’ world, transporting them back to 1920s Birmingham and putting them in iconic locations such as The Garrison and Charlie’s Yard.”
