Zen Studios has announced a new series of pinball tables for Pinball FX 2 and Marvel Pinball. The Avengers Chronicles will feature four new tables which will be released individually and later as a DLC pack. Unlike other pinball tables, each of these tables tell their part of a continuing story.
The Avengers table is a tie-in to the live-action movie being released this Summer, as the Avengers deal with an invasion led by Loki, and will feature Nick Fury, Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye - and each character is represented by their own special ball.
The World War Hulk table has Hulk returning from his banishment to outer space, fighting against the X-Men, Iron Man, the Fantastic Four and Doctor Strange in Manhattan.
This will be followed by The Infinity Gauntlet table, in which the Silver Surfer and Adam Warlock enlist the Marvel heroes to recover the six Infinity Gems from Thanos and save the universe in The Infinity Gauntlet. Each Infinity Gem will have an effect on the table, such as literally flipping the table upside down with the Reality Gem.
Finally, the Fear Itself table will feature The Avengers fighting Odin's long-banished brother. The major gimmick of this table is that it utilizes magnetic energy in ways no one has ever before experienced on a pinball table.
The DLC will work with both Pinball FX 2 and Marvel Pinball. It remains to be seen if the tables will also be released for the upcoming PC version of Pinball FX 2.
