Use the Force in Star Wars Pinball VR This April
Love Star Wars and pinball? Well, you’re in luck because Zen Studios has announced its next virtual reality (VR) videogame, Star Wars Pinball VR, and it’s set to hit all major headsets in April.
The original Star Wars Pinball launched back in 2013, with tables based on several of the films from the iconic franchise. Star Wars Pinball VR brings those tables into VR for the first time whilst adding new content to keep the title up to date with the expanding sci-fi universe.
There will be eight tables in total, two of them completely new. First up is The Mandalorian table based on the hit Disney+ TV show. The design focuses on the first season, where you can pick up bounties, rescue the child and meet characters like IG-11 and Moff Gideon. The other new table is called ‘Classic Collectibles’. As missions are completed you’ll collect classic Star Wars action figures which come alive in the process.
Ensuring a full VR fan service, all the mini-games have been upgraded to offer Total Immersion mode. When a mini-game starts you’ll be shrunk down onto the table so sequences like the speeder bike chase are as immersive as possible.
As for the other six tables these are:
- Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope
- Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back
- Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi
- Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
- Star Wars Rebels
- Star Wars: Masters of the Force.
It’s not just exciting interactive tables Star Wars Pinball VR offers. Being a VR title all the tables are housed in a Star Wars fan cave which can be customised with helmets, blasters, lightsabers, and other items collected by playing the tables. Zen Studios has also teased more content for future updates, saying: “the game is built to be expanded upon so the blast doors are certainly open for more content!”
Zen Studios’ Star Wars Pinball VR is set to launch on 29th April 2021 supporting Oculus Quest, PlayStation VR, Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and Valve Index. Check out the trailer below and for any further updates keep reading VRFocus.
