Zen Studios’ Star Wars Pinball VR launched last month for multiple virtual reality (VR) headsets, offering sci-fi fans an entirely customisable cave as well as a pinball machine with some awesome tables on it. If those eight tables we’re enough the studio has just released a new one dedicated to the galaxy’s favourite smugglers, Han Solo and Chewbacca.
Coming from Pinball FX3’s – Star Wars Pinball: Heroes Within pack, this free table offers new gameplay opportunities and unlockables for the fan cave. Set during the Classic Trilogy era, the Han Solo table doesn’t feature any lightsabers or magical trickery, just blasters and proper physics.
The iconic Millennium Falcon sits at the top of the table and plays a part in the challenges, tasking you with placing the ball in secret compartments or fixing the hyperdrive. There’s even a chance to destroy the Death Star. Like the other tables there a VR-enhanced mini-games to find, allowing you to pilot the ship through an asteroid belt, avoiding incoming fire from Tie Fighters.
Getting that far means some big scores which in turn allows you to update you cave with lifesize statues of Han and Chewie – who doesn’t want that next to their AT-AT and Jabba the Hut models?
When reviewing the Oculus Quest version, VRFocus said: Star Wars Pinball VR is an excellent addition to the franchise, another superb showcase of pinball in VR. There’s so much content to discover you’ll be playing for hour after hour trying to finesse those shots to unlock new secrets. Sure, it really helps if you’re a Star Wars fan as all the cave customization options will be lost on anyone else.
Zen Studios’ Star Wars Pinball VR supports Oculus Quest, PlayStation VR, Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and Valve Index. VRFocus will continue its coverage of the videogame, reporting back with further updates.
