'Pinball FX3' (ALL) Celebrates Jurassic Park With New Pinball Pack, Coming Soon - Screens & Trailer

Designed to bring the community together like never before, Pinball FX3 is built around multiplayer match-ups and competitive tournament play.

Zen Studios also placed a strong focus on helping players become more competitive, and have designed new single-player modes featuring special challenges that will help players develop their skills as they connect with the Pinball FX3 community.

Since 2007, Zen Studios has set the standard for video game pinball. The Pinball FX series balances authentic physics and gameplay mechanics with features that fully embrace the unlimited potential of video games, such as spectacular visual sequences and unparalleled competitive features. Just like traditional pinball, table subject matter includes everything from original takes on themes like sci-fi and fantasy to some of pop culture’s most iconic brands, such as Back to the Future, E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, Aliens, The Walking Dead and more.


Zen Studios will soon celebrate the 25th anniversary of Jurassic Park by releasing three all-new tables for its Pinball FX3 service. Themed around the history and lore of the iconic film franchise, Jurassic World Pinball features tables inspired by the events of the Jurassic World and Jurassic Park films.

The Jurassic World Pinball pack will be available for download on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Steam and Windows 10. Jurassic World Pinball will also be available on iOS, Google Play and Mac through the Zen Pinball app. All platforms will launch day and date on February 20, 2018.  

On the Jurassic World Pinball table, film dialogue from your favorite characters accompanies action inspired by iconic film scenes—from training Raptors and neutralizing Pteranodons to escaping the Indominus Rex and feeding the Mosasaurus. One mode even transforms pinballs into Gyrospheres!

Zen Studios has spared no expense to bring you the finest video pinball adventure this side of Isla Nublar with its Jurassic Park Pinball table. Hear from classic film characters as you relive your favorite cinematic moments from the original film in a whole new way. Outrun the T. rex in an iconic Jurassic Park jeep, hunt Velociraptors or outsmart those clever girls in the kitchen.

Return to Isla Nublar on the Jurassic Park Pinball Mayhem table as you keep escaped dinosaurs at bay, deal with emergencies, rescue trapped workers, and help return the park to its former glory. You’ll even assume the role of a Stegosaurus battling a hungry T. rex.

“Just like Jurassic World’s scientists created genetically modified hybrid dinosaurs, so too have Zen’s developers created an amazing hybrid between great pinball simulation and beautiful video game,” says Mel Kirk, VP of Publishing at Zen Studios. “Jurassic Park has a very respectable pinball legacy—we still play the ‘90s arcade table to this day—and we’re honored that Universal has entrusted us to continue that through Pinball FX3 with our Jurassic World Pinball pack. It’s an amazing way to celebrate 25 years of one of our favorite film franchises ever.”

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom releases in U.S. theaters on June 22, 2018.

 

Key Features:

  • Now every table is an RPG. Simply playing a table yields experience points and level advancements that continually unlock the potential for bigger points…and bigger blowouts of your friends’ scores on the leaderboards. Strategic thinking comes into play when determining which power-ups to equip—one table might be best suited for a Skillshot Score Increase and Multiball Score Bonus, while another might better benefit from Combo Time Bonus and Distance Bonus team-up.   
  • Players level up. The more you play, the higher your own personal experience level increases.
  • Anyone can start their own tournament. In addition to tournaments run by Zen (often involving fantastic prizes), Pinball FX3 allows players to create and customize their own tournaments, including access to several modes of play.  
  • Advanced multiplayer features allow for intelligent matching against others based on skill level. This applies to everything from immediate friendly matches to ultracompetitive League Play.
  • Cross-play enables Nintendo Switch players to take on opponents competing on most other platforms where Pinball FX3 is available.
  • New game modes will change the way you play even tables you feel you’ve already mastered. Playing a 1-Ball Challenge, a 5-Minute Challenge or Survival Mode will cause you to completely rethink your approach in order to top the leaderboards.

Pinball FX3 is currently available for Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
