Here at, we can exclusively reveal that Peaky Blinders: The King’s Ransom is getting a lot of DLC – and a roadmap for new content has been revealed for the VR game.


Peaky Blinders: The King’s Ransom initially launched on Meta Quest 2 and PICO 4 on 9th March 2023 to good reviews, including our own four-star review in which we explained that the game “does a fine job of really making you feel what it would actually be like” to be involved in the world of the Shelby family.

The King’s Ransom tells an original story that was written in collaboration with TV series creator Steven Knight and producer/brand owner Caryn Mandabach Productions.

In it, you infiltrate the Peaky Blinders' underground world and come face-to-face with characters both loved and feared from the show. Cillian Murphy even reprises his role as the voice of Tommy Shelby.

Everything has been “designed to enhance and extend the gameplay experience”. Game director at Maze Theory, Tim Jones, explained: “It’s been amazing to see the reactions, feedback, and game clips our players have shared with us since launch day! We are eager and excited to see our Peaky Crew delve into all the new content.”
