Many years ago Hungary’s Zen Studios absolutely nailed pinball simulation with their Pinball FX /Zen Pinball games. Now Pinball FX3 is set to take it to yet another level.

Finally using the same title for all releases (Xbox had Pinball FX, PlayStation had Zen Pinball), they’ve just let loose a tease of what to expect with Pinball FX3.

Upcoming for PS4, Xbox One and PC, Zen have come up with a bunch of new features to add to their already feature-packed pinball engine. It’s aiming to increase multiplayer competition with custom tournaments and leagues, just for starters. Also, those who aren’t so hot at pinball can be guided in the way of the silver ball with deeper tutorials and hand-holding.

Possibly the best news for those who’ve already been converted is that most of the tables from Pinball FX2 and Zen Pinball 2 that you already have will be able to be imported, and will be subject to all the shiny new stuff that’s been added to the game engine – and at no extra cost.

That’s about it for current news, other than a quick mention of tables based on new properties being planned to hit on day one. With past releases covering everything from Star Wars to Marvel and South Park to Street Fighter, we can only imagine what they could be.

Anyway, here’s a quick look at a little of what’s in store…
