Pinball FX 2 takes the pinball genre to another level with the most advanced ball physics and social features to date, along with a new collection of beautifully designed tables.

When Pinball FX 2 releases, existing Pinball FX owners will simply need to import their original Pinball FX content into the new Pinball FX 2 dashboard system. Pinball FX owners will be stoked to discover that each of these tables have received graphical updates and a new list of Achievements to unlock. In addition to every classic Pinball FX table, Pinball FX 2 will feature four all-new tables available for purchase. Every new table built for Pinball FX 2 will include new Achievements, operator mode and stats tracking.

Now, for the information you have all been waiting for…how much is Pinball FX 2 going to cost? It’s actually a bit of a complicated question, so we’re breaking it down piece by piece. The first thing to understand is that Pinball FX 2 is a FREE platform download for any Xbox Live Arcade user, providing access to the entire library of Pinball FX 2 content. Within the platform, you can demo every table before making a purchase.

The original DLC tables (Nightmare Mansion, Rocky & Bullwinkle, Street Fighter II Tribute Table, and Earth Defense) will each be available for 240 MS points.

Pasha, Rome, BioLab & Secrets of the Deep represent the Pinball FX 2 Core Collection, and will be available for 800 MS points.
