    Overview

    Pinball FX (not to be confused with the 2007 game of the same name) is a free-to-play virtual pinball collection developed and released by Zen Studios for the PC in Early Access format on the Epic Games Store on March 31, 2022. It will be released for the Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch sometime in 2022.

    The fourth main installment of the Pinball FX series (after Pinball FX3) and a name "reboot", Pinball FX features a new game engine built with Unreal Engine and includes most tables from Pinball FX3 (and its spin-offs) remastered with improved graphics and ball physics. In addition, it introduces a new piecemeal pricing scheme (removing the concept of "table packs"), a subscription system (Pinball FX Pinball Pass), and a customizable virtual room (the "PinHall").

    While most tables from Pinball FX3 and Star Wars Pinball VR are being brought over, players will need to repurchase all tables.

    Gameplay

    With the move to the new Pinball FX "reboot" most of the tables that were available in Pinball FX 3 were carried over, but with players needing to repurchase all tables. The only tables that did not make the move were The Walking Dead Pinball and Portal Pinball.

    This reboot of the series moves the game to the Unreal Engine and upgrades the tables with improved graphics and physics.

    Another change to the series is the move to individual table sales instead of the table packs available in previous titles.

    Pinball Pass

    No Caption Provided

    A new addition to Pinball FX is called the Pinball Pass. The Pinball Pass is a paid monthly/yearly subscription service that allows players to pay a fee each month or year, with access to most of the tables that are released. Not all of the tables are guaranteed to be released for Pinball Pass subscribers due to rules with some licensors.
