SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. — Sept. 29, 2021 — Zen Studios has announced that Pinball FX, the groundbreaking next-generation installment of its blockbuster pinball franchise, will first release in early access on PC via the Epic Games Store in March 2022.

“Pinball FX is a huge leap forward for us in so many ways. We’re really pushing the boundaries of what we’ve done before, trying a lot of exciting new things,” said Zen Studios COO Mel Kirk. “Early access is a great opportunity for us to experiment with all of these systems in a true live environment alongside our community, which will benefit players wherever they play when the game is fully ready.”

The game will also feature original tables from brand-new IPs, new challenge modes, a clan system, enhanced visuals and more.
