Get your flippers ready, virtual pinball players gaming on the Xbox 360. Tomorrow, you'll be able to download the “Zen Classics” content pack for Pinball FX2, bringing four old-school tables from Zen Studios to your favorite pinball game, complete with updated graphics and physics.
Now, keep in mind that when I say “old-school,” I only mean a few years old. But being the first tables to release for Zen Pinball on the PlayStation 3, said tables are about as “old” as Zen Studios' library gets. While Pinball FX2 on the 360 contains the vast majority of tables from its PS3 counterpart, the original four tables were never added to the mix. That all changes tomorrow when El Eldorado, Shaman, Tesla and V-12 are made available for 800 MSP ($10).
“It is incredible that support from our fans has enabled us to continue making content for Pinball FX2 more than two years after its release,” Zen's Creative Director Neil Sorens. “The Pinball FX2 community is one of the best out there, and we know they have been anxiously awaiting the release of these original designs.”
And now you're getting them, friend-o.
If you're familiar with Zen's more recent offerings like Epic Quest or the Plants vs. Zombies tables, then this batch of original tables will likely seem tame by comparison. More so than any of Zen's tables, these four badboys could likely be created in the real world. The tables' rules are more simple, the layouts more classic and there aren't a lot of instances of CG characters or effects having an impact on the playing field. That's not to say they aren't fun, though. Just a bit more realistic.
Add all four of these classic tables to your Pinball FX2 collection starting tomorrow.
