Pinball Arcade dev details 2014 plans, including season 3 tables

New, 14 comments

The Pinball Arcade developer FarSight Studios has big plans for 2014, and the company provided a full list of them in a post on the Pinball Arcade Fans forum yesterday.

The third season of downloadable pinball tables for The Pinball Arcade will consist of 10 tables, which will all come out between December 2013 and September 2014. Individual table packs will cost $4.99, while the Pro versions will go for $7.99 each.

The full Season Three Table Pack with all 10 tables costs $29.99, and the Pro version is available for $39.99. Its first piece of content, Table Add-On Pack #21, is already available on Android, iOS, Kindle Fire, Mac, Ouya and Windows PC; it is slated for release on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita in March, and FarSight is aiming to keep the PlayStation 4 version's table releases to a similar time frame.

FarSight is beta-testing a Challenge Mode and plans to release it early this year, while a head-to-head online mode is in the design stage. The studio is also working on a new, player-customizable user interface that is set to be available in all versions of The Pinball Arcade this year.

Last month, FarSight announced Pinball After Dark, which will offer a collection of adult-oriented tables with "explicit themes" when it is released later this year; the studio "hopes to bring Pinball After Dark to every platform and device currently supported by The Pinball Arcade," according to the forum post.

Those platforms will eventually include Linux and Wii U, FarSight announced. The Linux version of The Pinball Arcade should arrive on Steam this year, while the Wii U version will be submitted to Nintendo for approval in early 2014. As for the Xbox Live Arcade version, which was delisted last July, FarSight is still hoping to re-release it and all currently available downloadable content. In addition, FarSight is working on adding support for virtual pinball cabinets and DirectX 11 to the PC version of The Pinball Arcade, and 3D support on PS3 and PS4.
