FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Los Angeles, CA – August 31, 2010 – ZEN Studios, the definitive leader in arcade-style pinball videogames, announced today that Pinball FX 2 is blazing its way to Xbox LIVE ® Arcade for the Xbox 360 ® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft on October 13, 2010 as part of “Game Feast” presented by Microsoft Game Studios. The sequel to the smash hit Pinball FX, Pinball FX 2 takes the pinball genre to another level with the most advanced ball physics and social features to date, along with a new collection of beautifully designed tables. Best of all, Pinball FX 2 is a free update for existing Pinball FX owners, while new users can download and try every pinball table for free.
“We have been listening to our fans and building the pinball game that they envisioned,” said Zsolt Kigyossy, Managing Director for ZEN Studios. “It took a little longer than expected, but we have designed a game that unifies the online community, and takes all the social features to the next level.”
When Pinball FX 2 releases, existing Pinball FX owners will simply need to import their original Pinball FX content into the new Pinball FX 2 dashboard system. Pinball FX owners will be stoked to discover that each of these tables have received graphical updates and a new list of Achievements to unlock. In addition to every classic Pinball FX table, Pinball FX 2 will feature four all-new tables available for purchase. Every new table built for Pinball FX 2 will include new Achievements, operator mode and stats tracking.
Pinball FX 2 will be a free download for any Xbox LIVE Arcade user, and will ship with a robust trial system allowing the player to sample each table in the game. “We want gamers who may not have tried Pinball FX to get a taste of what they have been missing,” said Mark Coates, Executive Producer at Microsoft. “Providing robust access to the core game is an open door invitation to check out Pinball FX 2 and become part of the community!”
