British VR specialist Maze Theory has developed immersive games based on TV shows including Peaky Blinders and Doctor Who. But the studio has never released its own, original project. For years the studio has teased Engram for various headsets including Meta Quest and PSVR 2 but it never surfaced. However, the studio has quietly released The Infinite Inside via Quest’s App Lab instead.
October’s new VR games didn’t disappoint and looking at November’s roster there’s even more to look forward to. Once again there are over 20 titles confirmed so far, for PlayStation VR 2, Meta Quest 3 and 2, and PCVR headsets. So let’s dive in and see all the new VR games set to arrive this November.
The hugely popular TV show Peaky Blinders made its way to virtual reality (VR) headsets back in March. Since then, Maze Theory has been hard at work providing players with a continual stream of new content. The latest has arrived today, and it’s the biggest yet, demonstrating that just like the Shelby’s, Peaky Blinders VR means business.
Peaky Blinders: The King’s Ransom has been available for Meta Quest 2 and PICO 4 for several months now. During that time Maze Theory has released several free content updates adding new challenges, weapons and more. Today, the team has revealed that Peaky Blinders VR roadmap has been updated, adding a new timeline and plenty of exciting new content.
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.
The virtual reality (VR) industry went through a stage of releasing movie and TV show tie-ins that were more “interactive experiences” than actual videogames. The Martian for example or Vader Immortal: A Star Wars Story, both fall into that category – although the latter is far better than the former. British VR studio Maze Theory is well versed in skirting this line having previously created Doctor Who: The Edge of Time in 2019 which was more tailored to fans than newcomers. In this Peaky Blinders: The King’s Ransom review I find that similar issues persist, even when wrapped in the glorious atmosphere of 1920s Birmingham.
