Zen Studios announced a partnership with fellow Embracer Group developer Gearbox Software to bring classic game series to life in pinball form with Gearbox Pinball, a three-pack of digital tables based on Borderlands, Brothers in Arms and Homeworld games.

The collection adapts classic Gearbox series with these tables:

Brothers in Arms: Win the War Pinball: Stick close to your brothers as you complete missions and liberate towns within France and the Netherlands – now armed with a silver ball and your skills.
