Pinball FX3 & Universal Classics Pinball roll onto PS4 on 26th September

Try your hand at new E.T, Jaws and Back To The Future-themed tables, plus non-stop tournaments

We are thrilled to announce that Pinball FX3 and the brand new Universal Classics Pinball collection featuring brand new tables based on E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial,
Jaws and Back to the Future will release for PS4 on 26th September.

Videogame pinball has long been a solo experience. Not any more! Pinball FX3 is bringing non-stop tournaments, multiplayer matchups and league play! Check out the new trailer focused on showing what the Pinball FX3 multiplayer experience looks like!

Zen was 100% determined to make the jump from Zen Pinball 2 to Pinball FX3 as smooth and rewarding as possible. The entire pinball team has worked tirelessly to make sure you can import your previous Zen Pinball purchases to Pinball FX3 FREE OF CHARGE (click here for a detailed list of tables coming to Pinball FX3) into the new game and enjoy the new game modes and graphical updates including updated textures, real-time lighting and dynamic shadows!

Importing your tables is very easy. The first time you enter Pinball FX3, you will select “Import” when prompted by the new Pinball FX3 guide. Don’t worry, you can import your tables at any other time by pressing the “Import Tables” button in the main menu. As PlayStation Store locates your previous purchases it will list each with a “Free” price tab. Select the “Order & Pay” button. The selected item will be added to your Download queue, at which point you can wait for its download to complete, select “Return to Application” and continue playing Pinball FX3, or “View Download List” to see your pending downloads. Your tables will become available in-game once their download finishes.

Pinball FX3 is packed to the brim with new features and a brand-new progression system. Tournaments have been completely revamped and we are giving you the tools to create your own Tournaments! There will also be ‘official’ Zen Tournaments hosted by our table designers with prizes, and who knows, maybe the occasional famous face who also loves pinball.

The Pinball FX3 single player experience has also been totally reinvented. Three new Challenge Modes that offer a fresh take on pinball, each offering a unique twist and an opportunity to develop your skills. Earn the highest score with only one ball in the One Ball Challenge. Give everything you have and activate the biggest scoring modes in the 5 Minute Challenge where you’ll have unlimited balls to get to the top in the given time. For the real thrill seekers we have the Survival Challenge, where you have to get ever increasing scores in a very limited time. It’s intense! Classic single player modes are also still included.

Think I might give the BTTF table a go.

1.1

Very fine choice, crazy table with lots of multiballs!

Will Zen Pinball 2 be removed from the PS Store when Pinball FX3 is released, as you did with Zen Pinball 1 when Zen Pinball 2 was released?

And what will happen with Star Wars Pinball and Marvel Pinball? Will they still exist on the PS Store once Pinball FX3 is released?

2.1

Hello Ragowit, you will be able to have both Zen Pinball, Marvel Pinball, Star Wars Pinball and Pinball FX3 on the same system. You will still be able to access them from your library, but they will not remain in the store.

So if you’re a trophy hunter who aims to get 100% completion rate, make sure you buy all the tables before they are being pulled from the PS Store. Check.

Also, I haven’t confirmed this myself, but is “Additional Tables #2” (with Super League and Doctor Strange tables) already pulled from the PS Store? Thus making 100% trophies impossible unless you bought it before it was pulled.

2.3

Hmm, I can’t find Super League on the web store or on the list of supported or unsupported tables. I recognise that the team licences may be hard to transfer over but the ‘generic’ one with Zen Studios employees wouldn’t pose such an issue, surely? In any case, I assume tables will be buyable in-game if they’re supported.

Try this for Doctor Strange: https://store.playstation.com/#!/games/addons/doctor-strange-(unlock)/cid=EP4042-CUSA00186_00-ZP2PS4STR000000K

I guess the store will be refreshed when the new game is released?

Why pull ps3 version of starwars and marvel. Ps3 and vita not gonna have pinball games to play. Sad. It’s about money with Zen.

3.1

Hey dvd4077,

unfortunately, we had to say goodbye to PS3 and Vita since we needed the power of the PS4 to support our graphics updates. You will still be able to play your existing games on PS3 and Vita though!

So it’s like Zen Pinball 2 on PS4 where you have to spend ages manually importing each individual table rather than the game just giving you the option import all of them?

4.1

Hi richtayls,

we are working on a way to make the import quick and easy!

Thanks, I’ve bought pretty much every table for Zen Pinball 2, and bought the VR game too, love the games but the import process was frustrating.

So to summarise the table import list for PlayStation players: the roster is reduced by only FIVE tables? Both South Park tables, Street Fighter, Ninja Gaiden and PvZ… (PS never got Ms Splosion Man so I have that on Steam )

That’s awesome news. Obviously not perfect but I feared it would be worse than that!

3 weeks to go…

5.1

We were bummed about the few we had to leave Zen Pinball only, but a lot of licensing factors are at play with transfers like this and we secured all IP-s we could.

3 weeks, we can’t wait!
