Curve Digital has announced that Peaky Blinders: Mastermind, a game based on the hit TV drama, will be launching on Switch next month. You'll be able to get your hands on it from 20th August.
The game is a puzzle-adventure title developed by FuturLab, which has worked in collaboration with the creative and production teams behind the TV show itself. As we found out when it was first announced back in April, the game's story takes place immediately before the events of the show’s very first season, with players joining the Shelby family's criminal organisation as they discover a sinister plot to put Tommy out of business.
Players must plan and enact strategies by taking control of key members of the Shelby family during the same timeline, moving each character into position at exactly the right moment in order to navigate challenging scenarios. A new trailer for the game has been released today (see above), starring none other than Cillian Murphy who plays Tommy in the show.
You'll find Peaky Blinders: Mastermind available on the Switch eShop for $24.99 / €24.99 / £19.99 when it launches next month.
James Marsden, Game Director at FuturLab, says, "It's been an honour to be trusted with the Peaky Blinders license. 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."
