Fans of the BBC show can get their fix while waiting for new episodes, as 'Peaky Blinders: Mastermind', the video game based on the series, will be available later this month.

The game will come to PS4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch on August 20 and is priced at £19.99.

It will involve the player solving puzzles while controlling six members of the Shelby family, who each have their own special skill.

Cillian Murphy, who plays Tommy Shelby, has narrated a new trailer for the game, which is set before the events of season one of the show.

Game director at FuturLab, James Marsden, said: "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 to synchronise their actions during these crucial moments."

Series creator Steven Knight added: "You're going to have to be as smart as Tommy, as tough as Arthur, as ruthless as Polly. Good luck and remember, you really are a Peaky Blinder now."
