maze theorythe studio to which we already owe the very good VR game Dr Who: The Edge of Timehas just unveiled the very first trailer of Peaky Blinders: The King’s Ransom, his second VR game. A priori, the dark and realistic atmosphere of the cult British series will be very present in the game, but we regret a little the absence of the slightest sequence of gameplay. Cillian Murphy will voice the character of Tom Shelby in the game, and we will also find Paul Anderson’s stamp for Arthur Shelby. The player will be put in the virtual skin of Tom during a narrative adventure which will offer its share of encounters, painful choices to be made, and “terrifying situation” to solve. Note that the NPCs will benefit from an integrated AI allowing them to react coherently to the player’s decisions.
Peaky Blinders: The King’s Ransom should be available this year according to Maze Theory, but the studio has not yet specified the media on which the game will be able to run (Meta Quest 2, PCVR, PSVR 2). As a reminder, their previous title Dr Who: The Edge of Time was available on all VR platforms on the market.
