It was only a matter of time before Zen Studios announced a next-gen version of its flagship digital pinball environment Pinball FX, and in what the studio is billing its “most ambitious pinball project to date”, it’s promising a new Pinball Royale mode, inspired by “battle royale-style gameplay”. There’s no word on platforms right now, but PlayStation 5 seems like a very safe bet.
The press release continues: “The game will feature a new career mode, challenge modes, a clan system, enhanced visuals, and more. Leagues, tournaments, and competitive play have been retooled to bring the community together in unique ways, and live events and seasonal content will mean there’s always something new going on.”
Of course, the tables will always be the star of these games, and Zen Studios is promising “original tables featuring brand-new IPs, which will be revealed in the future”. There are no other details beyond that, but the developer is targeting a 2021 release date, so we expect to learn more in the not-too distant future.
