You will be able to buy and play the highly-anticipated Peaky Blinders video game before summer is up.

The videogame is titled Peaky Blinders: Mastermind and has been adapted from the popular gangster TV series. The game will feature characters from the show and will be a strategy game.

The game will be available on PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch. Pre-orders will be available from July 30 and the game will be officially released August 20.

The official game description reads: “The game taps directly into Tommy’s talent for planning complex scenarios in his head, with players forming strategies by taking control of key members of the Shelby family down on the ground”.

Game director James Marsden clarifies: “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 calls 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 [Arthur and Polly included] to synchronize their actions during these crucial moments.”
