I’ve grown tired of the bombardment of Marvel and Star Wars tables, but THIS one looks amazing!!!

Valve and Zen Studios have revealed the fruits of their recent collaboration, taking one of the most beloved game series of the past decade, Portal, and giving it the pinball treatment! Portal Pinball will be available for Zen Pinball 2 on PS3, PS4 and PS Vita on May 26th, 2015.

Crafted in collaboration with Valve and Zen Studios, Aperture Laboratories is proud to reveal the “Aperture Science Heuristic Portal Pinball Device”, proving that persistent experimentation is not only the hallmark of good science for the benefit of mankind, but also incalculably fun!

Guide Chell and Wheatley through test chambers by navigating portals, using aerial faith plates, defeating turrets and facing other obstacles, and battling against GLaDOS as you attempt to escape the facility and reach the surface. Team up with ATLAS and P-Body for their Cooperative Testing Initiative Multiball and wreak havok on the Turret Factory by discovering Ratman’s hidden mini playfield.

That table does have a lot of potential.

I am curious, do you prefer Zen Pinball over Pinball Arcade? I liked the zaniness of Zen and how they don’t follow the rules of the physical world, but something about how Pinball Arcade plays always felt better to me. I haven’t played either for a long time though.

I’ve never played Pinball Arcade, because I tend to lean towards the ridiculousness of Zen’s tables.

Cross-Platform Play
Zen Studios is also excited to share details about Pinball FX3 cross-platform features. Leaderboards, Matchups and Tournaments are all cross-platform enabled between the following communities and devices:

  • PlayStation Network + Steam
  • Xbox One + Windows 10 + Steam.

Please note, players on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 may restrict their gameplay experience to their platform only if so desired, meaning Playstation 4 players can elect to play with others only on PlayStation 4.

Pinball FX3 Table Roster Confirmation

Zen Studios continues to crank away on Pinball FX3, the biggest and most community-driven pinball game ever created. As we race towards launch on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Windows 10 and Steam, we wanted to provide a big update and confirm the Pinball FX3 table roster.

The Pinball FX2 / Zen Pinball 2 library is huge at this point – 65+ tables depending on which platform you play on. Many of these tables are based on brands from other companies, which Zen has “licensed” to create pinball games. There are a lot of business parameters that govern what we can do with this content. Some of our licensed content will not be able to come to Pinball FX3 due to business related challenges.

Further, we have spent a tremendous amount of time updating each Pinball FX3 table with dynamic lighting updates, updated graphics, new modes of play and other exciting features so they look and play better than ever! This has been a MASSIVE undertaking, but Zen remains committed to keeping the community together and providing an amazing value to players as they build their pinball collections.

The following lists confirm tables that will be available as FREE imports from Pinball FX2 / Zen Pinball 2 to Pinball FX3, as well as those tables which will not be available for Pinball FX3.
