Zen Studios Outlines Pinball FX 2 Pricing Structure, Reveals Secrets of the Deep Table


On October 13th, Zen Studios relaunches its stellar XBLA pinball game, Pinball FX, as Pinball FX 2 as part of Microsoft’s Game Feast promotion, and, as outlined today, there will be many different ways for players to experience the game.

For starters, Pinball FX 2 will be offered as a free downloadable pinball platform for all Xbox Live users, and once downloaded all of the game’s tables will be available to sample in demo form. Additionally, existing owners of the original Pinball FX will be treated to a free upgrade to the new Pinball FX 2 engine. You will be able to import all of the original tables into the sequel and begin playing them with enhanced graphics and physics, and even new Achievements. Again, the upgrade and import process will be completely free of charge.

For Pinball FX virgins, the three original tables will be sold in a Classic Collection bundle for 800 MS Points and the five previous DLC tables will sell for 240 MS Points apiece. A Core Collection bundle of four new tables built specifically for Pinball FX 2 will also be available at launch for 800 MS Points. Those Core Collection tables will include Pasha, Rome, BioLab and the just-unveiled Secrets of the Deep theme, which you can get an early sneak peek of in the screenshots below.
