After a three-week delay, Pinball FX2 Xbox One now lives on the Xbox Games Store as a free download. Pinball FX2 was originally supposed to launch on July 29, but it was delayed due to gamers’ call for Xbox 360 tables to transfer over.
As of this morning, that functionality is complete. Anyone who has previously paid for and downloaded tables for Pinball FX2 on Xbox 360 can download and play those tables for free on the Pinball FX2 Xbox One version. Zen Studios had initially indicated gamers would have to re-pay for those downloads on the next-gen version.
Responding to gamers’ cries of injustice (man, that makes it sound like a big deal, doesn’t it?), Zen Studios pushed back the release of Pinball FX2 on Xbox One. The decision was truly last-minute. The delay wasn’t announced until the day the game was initially supposed to go live.
Pinball FX2 on Xbox One runs at a full 1080p resolution and at 60 frames per second. This next-gen version also supports worldwide tournaments, has new Achievements and sports a slick new menu interface.
Pinball FX2 is a free-to-play pinball platform download on Xbox One, offering most of the Pinball FX2 library at launch. Yes, that includes the Star Wars Pinball table packs and a great selection of Marvel Pinball tables, including the recently released Guardians of the Galaxy and Deadpool tables. Also included is Zen’s original roster of tables, all available for purchase.
Pinball FX2 will receive regular content updates, the first of which will be The Walking Dead pinball table. That table is planned to release on Aug. 28.
Prices range between $2.49 and $2.99 for single tables and $9.99 for table packs, and are available from the Xbox Games Store
Any available tables originally purchased on the Xbox 360 will transfer over to the Xbox One version of the game at no additional cost.
