What you need to know

  • Peaky Blinders: The King's Ransom has been announced and will be coming to Quest headsets in 2022.
  • The virtual reality title is based on the BBC TV series Peaky Blinders.
  • The game is being developed by a studio behind various Doctor Who games.

Peaky Blinders, the BBC historical fiction and crime drama television series, will be getting its own game set entirely in virtual reality sometime this year.

The VR title will be called Peaky Blinders: The King's Ransom and will be coming to Quest 2 headsets and Quest platform in 2022. It will be a "dark" action adventure game set in the streets of 1920s Birmingham and London with players seeking to join one of the most powerful British gangs.

The game will include iconic locations from the series, such as the Garrison pub, Charlie's Yard, and Shelby's Betting Shop. Titular characters like gang leader Tommy Shelby and his brother Arthur Shelby Jr. will appear in the game and will be voiced by their respective actors, Cillian Murphy and Paul Anderson. According to the official website, players will have to "make gut-wrenching moral choices" in addition to combat.

Peaky Blinders: The King's Ransom is being developed by Maze Theory, which has adapted other BBC television series Doctor Who to video games including Doctor Who: The Edge of Reality, Doctor Who: The Lonely Assassins, and VR title Doctor Who: The Edge of Time. While Peaky Blinders has been critically acclaimed, we will see later this year if the VR game can crack the list of best Quest 2 games.

The hidden cost of food delivery

Noah Lichtenstein Contributor Share on Twitter Noah Lichtenstein is the founder and managing partner of Crossover , a diversified private technology fund backed by institutional investors, technology execs and professional athletes and entertainers. More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Technics EAH-AZ60 review: Contending in stunning fashion

Technics serves notice that everyone should notice these earbuds. Technics ventured into the wireless earbuds category to go after the big dogs in the race. Think of the likes of Sony, Bose, and Sennheiser on sound quality, as well as the best you can find on design and functionality. It's a combination that comes at a price, but if done right, it gets easier to justify spending more. That's the case Technics makes with its EAH-Z60 earbuds. Its newest pair aims to take what the company has done in the past and make it even better. The results are easy to like and are significant enough to consider them as serious contenders.

iOS 14 Favorites Widget: How to Make a Replacement With Shortcuts

In iOS 14 , Apple overhauled widgets and introduced an option for adding ‌widgets‌ to the Home Screen , but in the process, a well-loved Favorites widget that existed in iOS 13 was removed. The Favorites widget let users set certain contacts and contact methods as favorites that were easily accessible, so you could, for example, add a favorite option for messaging Eric or calling Dan, with those actions executed with a tap. Why the Favorites widget was removed is a mystery and it could be a simple oversight with Apple planning to reintroduce it later, but for now, those who relied on the widget can recreate its functionality with Shortcuts. It takes some effort, but it may be worth the time investment if you often relied on your Favorites. Creating a Favorites Shortcut Making a shortcut that replicates the behavior of the Favorites widget isn't too tough, but if you want multiple favorite options, you'll need to create a separate shortcut for each one in the Shortcuts
