Zen’s Next Pinball Pack is a Little Bit Fantasy, a Little Bit Wild West

Instead of licensed properties, Zen Studios is putting together a pair of original table themes for the next Zen Pinball 2 / Pinball FX2 update, the Iron & Steel Pack.

The Iron & Steel Pack will contain two tables, including a CastleStorm theme based on Zen’s own Angry Birds-meets-King Arthur’s World action-strategy game hybrid, as well as the not-based-on-any-existing-property Wild West Rampage, a rootin’-tootin’ Wild West shootout with shiny balls instead of bullets.

In CastleStorm pinball, players will team up with the heroic knight Sir Gareth as he returns once more to protect the Kingdom from the relentless hordes of vicious Vikings and their raging leader, Chief Ramhorn. The CastleStorm table features single and multiball game modes set within a Viking stronghold, an enormous fire breathing dragon, an armored troll, and even a charming donkey!

The second table in the pack, Wild West Rampage, stars Cindy, a bold bounty hunter who arrives in the western town of Rackton Point with a bone to pick with the town’s crooked Sheriff Evans. Cindy has her sights aimed on defeating his men and ruining their crooked plans to control the town, but it definitely won’t be easy to loosen Evans’ stranglehold. Hit the trail and experience an exciting Western-inspired playfield complete with a rolling 3D steam engine, swinging saloon doors, a six-shooter ball locker, and duels with members of Sheriff Evans’ posse!
