Pinball FX 2 VR (2016), the VR pinball simulator, is getting a host of new tables in a free update, brought over from its flatscreen sequel, Pinball FX 3 (2017). Tables based on E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982), Jaws (1975) and Back to the Future (1985) are now available in the respective versions for Oculus Rift, Oculus Go and Gear VR.

The tables, licensed by Universal, come along with immersive environments including the forest behind Elliot’s house (E.T.), a beach villa looking out to an Amity Island sunset (Jaws), and Hill Valley’s historic town square (Back to the Future).

A few other goodies await too, says developer Zen Studios, including “a curious E.T. peeking at your table to see how you’re doing, a shark fin circling around your Jaws table, and the classic DeLorean flashing across the Back to the Future table.”

“Everyone seemed to really love what we did with the non-VR version of Universal Classics Pinball (we’re especially flattered by the 90 on Metacritic for the Xbox One version). The Pinball FX2 VR version features every bit of film-adapting gameplay that resonated so well with critics and fans alike, from E.T. collecting candy in a cornfield to Marty McFly showcasing his skills at arcade shooting and players braving the open waters in a shark cage for an exciting multi-ball mode.”

There’s no word yet when/if either the Steam version, which supports both Rift and Vive, or the PSVR version, will get the update.

    I really like Pinball FX2 VR and have been waiting for new tables for a long time. I’m going to assume that the SteamVR version will get the tables since Zen has always been pretty good about not doing platform lock-ins for previous versions of FX2 VR.

    Oh wow! This is great news

    I was certain we would never see more Pinball FX 2 VR tables… certainly not as a free update! What a surprise!

      The new DLC is NOT FREE. Just the ‘update’ is free; very poorly worded info IMO. The new tables are $20 USD as a package.

        I just noticed that as well… would have been too good to be true.

          Me too, I was looking forward to that. Not paying that much for that, I’ll get beers instead.
