Pinball, man. When I was a kid, pinball was the main reason I couldn’t afford any fancy snacks and drinks at the tuck shop. Why spend all those two rands on sustenance when I could be having fun posting killer high scores!? Why indeed.
Anyway, pinball is still very much a thing, and Zen Studios (of Zen Pinball fame) has recently confirmed that they’ve partnered with Bethesda in order to create a pinball pack inspired by some of Bethesda’s most celebrated franchises. More details, teaser trailer, and screenshots below.
The announcement comes straight from Zen Studios’ blog, which serves to give players an idea of what the pack will include when it releases in December. “Bethesda Pinball presents three exciting pinball tables based on Bethesda’s epic gaming universes: Fallout, DOOM, and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim,” reads the blurb.
The post also gives us a more detailed description of each new table:
Fallout: “Explore the secrets of the post-nuclear wasteland in a world decimated by atomic war, join Factions, raid Vaults and collect Bobbleheads on the Fallout pinball table.”
Doom: “fight your way through the UAC research facility while taking on hordes of demons to earn the DOOM Slayer name on the DOOM pinball table.”
Skyrim: “craft weapons, wield magic, equip armor, buy and sell goods, mine materials, find companions and complete side quests before defeating Alduin and fulfilling your destiny as the Dragonborn on The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim pinball table.”
The Bethesda Pinball pack should be out on 6 December and will be headed to PC, PSN, Xbox, MAC, and mobile platforms.
