Zen Studios has just announced a sequel to their popular Pinball FX2 video game aptly titled, Pinball FX3 for Xbox One and Windows 10. “Pinball FX and Zen Pinball (as it’s called on PlayStation) have been serving players for years and years, and the time has come to go next-level and take a major step forward in the pinball evolution. Pinball FX3 will now be the Zen supported pinball platform on all console and PC platforms,” the official statement reads. “Pinball FX3 is a massive game packed full of new features designed to turn pinball into a true community experience. Built around multiplayer-matchups, user-generated tournaments and league play, Pinball FX3 is now so much more than just leaderboard rankings – it elevates the competitive pinball spirit that has thrived since the early days of pinball more than a century ago.”
Pinball FX3 is said to come with a new mode for single players that will help introduce them to pinball video games. One of the biggest criticisms of Pinball FX2 was how it hid a lot of the tables’ gameplay elements and goals from the casual player so this should be a welcome addition for many.
The new game is also expected to unlock the majority of the tables gamers had bought in previous versions for free. “We are happy to announce that you will be able to import the majority of your Pinball FX2 purchases to Pinball FX3 for FREE,” says the announcement. “We’re giving you all of the new features and upgrades at no cost – and there are a TON of them, giving you reasons to never stop playing your tables. We like to think that Pinball FX3 is an endless ocean of replayability!”
Pinball FX3 is due for release in summer 2017. A specific release date will likely get announced soon. Are you excited for Pinball FX3? Let us know in the comments below.Further reading: Microsoft, Video Games, Windows 10, Xbox, Xbox One
