'Pinball FX3' (ALL) Williams Pinball: Volume 4 Announced & Dated - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on May 15, 2019 @ 12:36 p.m. PDT

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 is happy to announce White Water, Red and Ted’s Road Show and Hurricane will release together in Williams Pinball: Volume 4, which will be available on May 28 through Pinball FX3 for PS4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch and through the recently released Williams Pinball for iOS and Google Play.

  • Each Williams Pinball: Volume 4 table will be available as classic simulations of these iconic tables in addition to remastered versions, featuring new and unique interactive moments. Go with the flow! In White Water, navigate down the river, riding the Spine Chiller down Insanity Falls to meet Big Foot. Featuring one of the most satisfying ramps in pinball, this unique fan-favorite pin hits all the right notes.
  • It’s a big country… Someone’s gotta tear it up!  Red and Ted’s Road Show presents a classic wide body design packed full of craziness!  Wreck roads across the U.S. from sea to shining sea as you smash cabs in New York, party at Mardi Gras in New Orleans and meet monsters in California!
  • Hurricaneis blowing into town! Soak up the quirky atmosphere in this Williams classic, set in an amusement park complete with a Ferris wheel and plenty of carnival games.

Zen’s commitment to excellence in pinball gameplay continues with the release of a brand-new flipper physics system releasing with Williams Pinball Volume 4! The focus is entirely on the ball interaction with the flippers and reaction of the ball as it hits the flippers. The addition of flipper physics further perfects Zen’s Pro Physics system which was introduced in September 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.
