The masters of Pinball, Zen Studios, have today released a galactic expansion to their stunning ball-flinger, Pinball FX3, and not only does it give you the chance to live the life of Solo ahead of the films home entertainment release, but the bundle that is available delivers a stunning array of tables.
Available right now for Pinball FX3 players to purchase and download is the Pinball FX3 – Star Wars Pinball: Solo Pack for £8.39, and the Pinball FX3 – Star Wars™ Pinball: Season 2 Bundle for a cool £19.99.
Taking the Solo Pack for starters, we find 3 exciting tables that have been inspired by the film. With them you’ll get the opportunity to experience Han’s first meetings with Chewbacca, Beckett and the legend that is Lando Calrissian, before piloting the Millennium Falcon and attempting to make the Kessel run in less than 12 parsecs.
You’ll also get to deploy an Imperial army and help Lando destroy the second Death Star. Full table details as follows:
- Star Wars™ Pinball: Solo – It’s the digital pinball table that—for the first time ever in a video game—makes the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs (if you round down). Exciting 3D character and vehicle models roar to life as you relive all your favorite movie scenes from Solo: A Star Wars Story, from the grand Conveyex shipment heist, the speeder chase and piloting the Millennium Falcon, to meeting familiar faces like Lando Calrissian and Chewbacca.
- Star Wars™ Pinball: Calrissian Chronicles – Hello, what have we here? Live Lando’s life, from smooth-talking smuggler to Rebel hero who helped destroy the second Death Star. Missions in this table not only base themselves on iconic Lando movie moments, but also on his memorable appearances in Star Wars Rebels™ and Marvel’s Star Wars™ Lando (2015) comic book. More than 15 of Lando’s enemies enter the fray, as well, not to be outdone by team-ups with the likes of Lobot and Han Solo. Unless, of course, sabacc cards are involved—then it’s time to compete directly with Han… “fair and square.”
- Star Wars™ Pinball: Battle of Mimban – For the glory of the Empire! Deploy an Imperial army and lead it to victory against the fierce inhabitants of the planet Mimban. There will be no deserters in this rendition of the battle brought to life in Solo: A Star Wars Story where Han Solo met Beckett. And if there are? Feed them to “the beast” in the pit! Then, unleash devastating AT-DT attacks, take on enemy troops on an action-packed mini playfield, dirty things up further with a Mudball Multi-ball and more.
If you like what you are reading but wish to go a bit deeper into the Star Wars world with Pinball FX3, then the Season 2 Bundle is probably your best bet, as it brings no less than 9 awesome tables to the game. That means you’ll get access to everything from the Solo pack as well as the Last Jedi offerings, The Force Awakens tables and some Rogue One goodies.
The Xbox Store will sort us Xbox gamers out, whilst the Solo experience is also available on PS4 and PC, with the Zen Pinball and Star Wars Pinball apps for Android, iOS and Mac hosting them individually.
