It’s Shotgun Time in Peaky Blinders: The King’s Ransom

In April Maze Theory revealed its Peaky Blinders VR roadmap, detailing monthly content drops. Last month saw the introduction of Shooting Galleries as well as some other gameplay improvements. Today marks the arrival of the next free DLC drop for Meta Quest 2 owners. Introducing the shotgun as well as several combat challenges to Peaky Blinders: The King’s Ransom.

“We are super excited to see how Peaky players take to the next batch of free content,”  said Tim Jones, Game Director at Maze Theory in a statement. “We’ve made a huge effort to respond to player feedback and we look forward to continuing to improve the game and add to the experience in the months ahead.”

The free update adds a Winchester Shotgun to the Peaky Blinders arsenal, providing two barrels of explosive damage. This can be used in the free roam mode once players have completed the main game.

This is supported with a replayable shotgun combat challenge, defeating waves of enemies as quickly as possible. Furthermore, players are being treated to a new headshot challenge for the pistol. Both of these include live NPC opponents rather than the dummy targets featured elsewhere.

In June more weapon challenges and combat missions will be introduced.

Peaky Blinders: The King’s Ransom DLC is available today for Meta Quest 2. PICO owners will be able to get their hands on the new content in the coming days.

In our Peaky Blinders: The King’s Ransom review XR Source found the game: “perfectly encapsulates the TV show, staying true to the universe in every way. From the location detail and narrative to the voicing acting and character models of the main stars, Maze Theory has done a commendable job.”
