DESPERADOS III–Like PEAKY BLINDERS: MASTERMIND Receives Brand-New Launch Trailer
Mechanic: Bartosz Sobczak
Category: Strategy Games
Fans of BBC's award-winning TV drama Peaky Blinders should be happy to hear that its original adaptation — titled Peaky Blinders: Mastermind — is currently available for PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
Although games based on popular movies, books, and TV series are often half-cooked and rushed into production, the newly released Peaky Blinders: Mastermind seems to be a reasonable alternative to big strategy games with stealth elements such as Mimimi Games' Desperados III and inXile's Wasteland 3.
Currently sitting at a nice 63% score on Metacritic, Peaky Blinders: Mastermind probably won't win any GOTY awards, but those who want to spend more time in the Steven Knight–created world should give it a chance.
As a reminder, Peaky Blinders: Mastermind is a prequel to the fan-favourite TV series. The new title was created by the team at FuturLab, the Hove-based makers of Surge, Tiny Trax, and Mini-Mech Mayhem.
To learn more about the core game mechanics of Peaky Blinders: Mastermind, take a look at its launch trailer:
Welcome to Birmingham, during the aftermath of the Great War. Set right before the events of Season One, Peaky Blinders: Mastermind lets you join the Shelby family's criminal gang. Follow the rise of Tommy as he successfully uncovers a sinister plot to put the family out of business, proving himself worthy of being the true mastermind of the Peaky Blinders.
Peaky Blinders: Mastermind is currently available for PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC (via Steam).
