Pinball FX 2 comes to Steam on May 10


11:00 PM on 05.03.2013



Outside the dedicated and nebulously legal emulation scene, PC hasn't received much virtual pinball love lately despite being its birthplace. Zen Studios is changing this by bringing Pinball FX 2 to Steam on May 10. The title previously arrived on the Windows Store in October, but it should hit a larger PC audience on Steam which is admittedly devoid of quality pinball titles.

For those new to Pinball FX 2, it's a free-to-download platform that offers a number of table packs based on Star Wars and Marvel, along with some original creations. The six packs available at launch will go for $9.99 each. Turns out pinball is still expensive.

This is perfect timing for someone who has recently become obsessed with pinball via my Nexus 7 tablet. Here's hoping Pinball Arcade follows suit in time, as I love the sound and look of the original tables. Beggers can't be choosers though, so I'll savor playing Pinball FX 2 in HD with a controller and Steam achievements.

'Sorcerer's Lair' table next for Pinball FX 2

An evil sorcerer, some children, and a slingshot -- what could possibly go wrong? That's the setup for the Zen Studios' next Pinball FX 2 table, "Sorcerer's Lair," due out on Wednesday, October 12 via download. I appreciate the mix of bright aesthetics and gloomy subject matter, and really like the look of the cellar mission. Give the first screenshots a look, if you would.more
