Peaky Blinders video game will be released on August 20


Peaky Blinders: Mastermind is set to be released on August 20 and the video game will follow the narrative of the TV show as you adopt the role of boss Tommy Shelby, guiding his crime family and enacting their plots.

Released as a dual effort from Curve Digital and FuturLab, the puzzle-adventure game allows you to control every family member's actions, and move them around like chess pieces.

It will be available on PS4, Xbox One and PC.

Featuring voice-work by Cillian Murphy, who plays Tommy Shelby in the TV show, you have to move the characters into the right positions to prevent a plot which intends to put Tommy out of business. 

"It's been an honour to be trusted with the Peaky Blinders license," said James Marsden, game director at FuturLab, speaking to Push Square

"Our team has created a game that reflects the heart of what makes the show compelling: Tommy Shelby's ability to manipulate friends, family and foes in the pursuit of his master plan.

"We’re inspired by choreography and dance, and we’ve had this idea to ‘choreograph’ characters for a long time.

"The fact that Peaky Blinders has this great ensemble cast and it’s Tommy managing the tasks of his family without them necessarily knowing why or without the audience knowing why — all paying off at the end of each season — it just seemed to fit perfectly with the mechanic we had."

The game is also scored by Feverist, who did the soundtrack for the show's first season. 

Currently it's listed at £19.99, but if you pre-order the game, you're eligible for a significant 20% discount.
