Curve Digital is to release a Peaky Blinders video game on PC and console this summer.
UK studio FuturLab and publisher Curve Digital have announced Peaky Blinders: Mastermind, a new stealth puzzle adventure based on the hit TV series.
The game acts as a prelude to the show’s first season, with players assuming the role of criminal mastermind Tommy Shelby, and his gang, as they vie for control over the streets of Birmingham in the early 20th century.
The game aims to evoke Shelby’s talents with a mix of tactical planning, stealth, and strategy. Players can coordinate and synchronise each character’s actions to execute the perfect solution to each increasingly complex scenario. The ability to freely set and rewind each character’s path – and use their unique abilities – lets players refine their approach.
For a closer look at how the game’s mechanics work, take a look at the Peaky Blinders: Mastermind official reveal trailer.
Speaking about Peaky Blinders: Mastermind, FuturLab game director James Marsden says:
“There’s a point in the show where Tommy Shelby explains he has no concern for the past, nor the future; all he cares about is a crucial moment he recalls the soldier’s minute. We designed our game around that idea, allowing the player to plan actions backward and forward in time, choreographing an ensemble cast of characters to synchronise their actions during these crucial moments. The player gets to feel like the smart and sophisticated leader that Tommy is, so we think becoming the mastermind will resonate with fans of the show and gamers alike.”
UK rock band Feverist – whose music is featured in the trailer – is working on the soundtrack to the game. The first single from the soundtrack album, Reveller, is out today.
Peaky Blinders: Mastermind will be released for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC this summer.
