When the Oculus Rift launched on 28th March one of the available titles on day one came from Zen Studios in the form of Pinball FX2 VR. The popular PC title had a virtual reality (VR) makeover which VRFocus reviewed and very highly rated. Now the studio has announced the first expansion pack for the title will be released soon with several new tables.
The Pinball FX2 VR Season One Expansion Pack will add five fan favourite tables from the original 2D videogame. These will be CastleStorm, Wild West Rampage, BioLab, Paranormal and Earth Defense. With each table having its own theme and style players will be able to defeat the enemy soldiers and raze their castles with Sir Gareth on the CastleStorm table, duel it out with a crooked sheriff in a western showdown in Wild West Rampage, create a new alien species in BioLab, investigate a series of supernatural events in Paranormal, or save the planet from invading extraterrestrial forces in Earth Defense.
As with the previous tables the characters in the new ones will be brought to life, creating an immersive pinball experience that can only be found in VR.
One of the tables CastleStorm may sound familiar to regular readers of VRFocus as Zen Studios recently released CastleStorm VR for the Oculus Rift and Samsung Gear VR head-mounted displays (HMDs). Castlestorm VR is a tower defence style action-strategy RPG that mixes up 2D destruction with a vivid and stylish cartoon aesthetic. Players must defend their castle using a legion of pit knights, soldiers, archers, griffins and other characters at their command against their enemies in castle vs. castle combat.
Zen Studios will launch the Pinball FX2 VR Season One Expansion Pack on 23rd August, 2016. VRFocus will continue its coverage of The Pinball FX2 VR, reporting back with any further announcements.
