The ongoing saga of a galaxy far, far away continues to expand in Zen Studios’ Star Wars Pinball, as The Balance of the Force table pack arrives on Xbox Live Arcade next Wednesday, October 16. The content pack includes three new tables: Episode VI: The Return of the Jedi, Starfighter Assault and Darth Vader, each themed around their own iconic battles and scenes from the films.
Episode VI: The Return of the Jedi places you back on the forest moon of Endor, as Luke, Leia, Han and the rest of the gang attempt to breach the infamous shield generator. Chase the speeder bike scouts, repel the AT-ST and relive the clash between Luke and Lord Vader.
Here we are once again at the start of what’s sure to be another fantastic year of XBLA releases.

No stranger to downloadable shooters, Zombie Studios’ upcoming Special Forces: Team X capitalizes on its expertise honed crafting Blacklight: Tango Down and Black: Retribution. Don’t be fooled by the colorful cel-shaded visuals; Special Forces targets frenetic third-person team-centric combat with brutal executions and an arsenal of real world weapons. Its dynamic map tile system puts players in control of generating the environment in a pre-round vote, with over a hundred possible combinations of individual tiles to choose. All this coupled with a healthy rank progression and customization system means Special Forces: Team X stands to deliver quite the bang for your buck when it hits XBLA on February 6 for 1200 MSP.
