Pinball FX2 new tables coming and Xbox 360 update available now
Coming to Pinball FX2 on both Xbox 360 and Xbox One next week is the Iron & Steel Pack. This pack will include two new tables: CastleStorm, based on another popular Zen Studios game, and Wild West Rampage, a completely original table with a (obviously) western theme. Also, in preparation for the release on Xbox 360, Zen Studios has released a massive title update that just might convince current Xbox One players to dust off their 360s for a revisit to a classic game.
Along with bumpers, flippers and balls this table also features fire-breathing dragons, armored trolls and what else but a very charming donkey. Many single and multiball modes will have you teaming up with Sir Gareth and protecting the pinball kingdom from the Vikings and their leader, Chief Ramhorn.
In the Wild West Rampage table you play Cindy, a bounty hunter who has just rolled in to town with a bone to pick with the local Sheriff. From a six-shooter ball locker to duels with the Sheriff’s posse to an actual 3D steam engine rolling down the tracks, the Wild West Rampage table has everything you would expect to see back in the real Old West.
The Iron & Steel Pack will release on Xbox 360 next Wednesday, February 25. The Xbox One will receive the tables the next day, Thursday, February 26. As always, your best bet may be buying the pack on the Xbox 360 first; not only to play the tables a day early, but also because the tables will import to the Xbox One version for free. Whichever console you purchase the Iron & Steel Pack on it will be priced at $4.99.
