Pinball FX2 VR Adds Back to the Future, E.T., Jaws Tables

Enjoy the first-ever movie-based pinball tables in PS VR, featuring Universal Classics Back to the Future, E.T., and Jaws.

Hello pinball and PS VR lovers! Universal Classics Pinball is available now on Pinball FX2 VR for PlayStation VR! Zen Studios is excited to boost our Pinball FX2 VR library with this three-table pinball pack.

As you may know, Pinball FX2 VR is already available with nine awesome tables, including Telltale’s crowd-pleaser The Walking Dead. The release of Universal Classics Pinball is the first movie-based table content Zen has been able to bring to VR – in fact, these are the first movie-based VR pinball tables ever!

That’s right – Universal Classics Pinball is based off three incredible cinema classics featuring Back to the Future, E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, and Jaws.

Back to the Future

With the power of PS VR, you’ll experience some of your favorite moments from the films like never before. I don’t know about you, but Back to the Future Pinball is my favorite of this bunch. I get to travel through time with Doc Brown and Marty on their exciting adventures through the decades.

Oh, and there’s a fully animated DeLorean that flies right off the table and zooms around the virtual pinball cabinet at speeds approaching 88 miles per hour. Yes, Back to the Future is awesome.

E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial

Come to think of it, though, E.T. Pinball is pretty great, too. I love reaching the game mode where I get to collect pieces of candy in the field. And of course, the fully animated E.T. character is so charming, he greets you with a wave at the start of each game and even stretches out his neck over the virtual pinball table to see how your game is going.

And do you remember the iconic moment in the film when E.T. levitates the planets in Elliott’s room? He does that same thing in the game too!

Jaws

But then again, Jaws Pinball is an extremely thrilling table.

Picture this: You’re stranded in the open sea with a dorsal fin circling you, with nothing but your floating virtual pinball cabinet to hold on to. It’s a fully animated great white shark, waiting to show off his terrible teeth and bite into the side of your virtual pinball cabinet.

So, tell me in the comments – which table do you see yourself playing first? Honestly, I can’t seem to make up my mind on which is my favorite. I warn you, it’s not as easy as you think.

Go ahead and try them all! Immerse yourself in these fantastic film-based tables as they come to life in a whole new way with PS VR. You’ll never look at virtual pinball the same way again.

  • These tables are a blast, only setback….not original soundtrack :(

  • Awesome! I told you back when FX3 launched without VR that I could not support the efffort, but I will buy any future VR content you deliver. Today you delivered, and today you get my money.

    For anyone wondering, this is a $19.99 Add On, on the PS Store.

    Thank you so much for bringing, more VR goodness. My money is always ready for more VR Pinball, so don’t stop now. You keep dropping the content, and I will make sure I do my part to support you.

    • Thanks KGB29, this is really nice to read.

      We were so glad we could drop some new content to PSVR you can’t even imagine.

      What would be your next pick for a VR version?

  • New was first posted for PC glad to see they are also on PSVR. Great tables and a must have for my virtual game room along side the other VR tables..

  • Picked these up for Oculus Go on day one.

    For $5 dollars cheaper than PSVR price.

    Excellent tables.

    Side note… every VR game available for both PSVR & Oculus Go is cheaper on Oculus Go. Always.

    I love my PSVR & of course I’ll still be purchasing games (Firewall: Zero Hour!) but Oculus Go has become my go to headset.

    Once Vive Focus & Santa release… PSVR might be in trouble.

    Wireless VR is going to kill it.

    • Santa Cruz I meant to say up there.

    • It’s really interesting to see how VR technology develops. I, personally, am really glad that VR technology looks like it’s here to stay and there is new stuff coming out on both the hardware and software front.

    • They’ll be fine. They’re totally different markets. Most people interested in PSVR already have one by now and they aren’t going to suddenly get rid of them to buy a little phone VR head strap or a whole new gaming PC and twice as expensive VR headset just so they can play the exact same games minus one wire.

      Meanwhile a year after those come out Sony will probably release a new wireless model for half the price again.
