Peaky Blinders: Mastermind takes place in Birmingham, England after the Great War. Set before the events of the TV show’s first season, Mastermind’s narrative centers on Tommy Shelby and the gang of Shelby family criminals that surround him. In the game, Tommy will learn of plans that mean to permanently halt the family business’ growth. He’ll naturally stop at nothing to thwart such intentions.
Throughout Peaky Blinders: Mastermind, Tommy will showcase his ability to devise complex scenarios. To see this play out, players will assume control of Tommy and several other notable members of the Shelby family, including Polly and Arthur.
Simply planning a scenario won’t be enough to guarantee success, however. Coordination is apparently key as well. This should especially come into play with Mastermind’s time manipulation mechanics, which will allow players to reset, rewind, and fast-forward a character’s movements.
