Pinball FX2 rolls on Xbox One July 31

Pinball FX2 is ubiquitous across nearly all devices (check your toaster, it's probably on there too!), so consider us flippering surprised when we got an email this morning saying it was coming to Xbox One on July 31. It wasn't there already? Apparently not!

As is standard, Pinball FX2 is a free downloadable platform, with various add-on tables available for a few dollars apiece – though the download on Xbox One does include the Sorcerer's Lair table for free. The game will launch with "nearly the entire Pinball FX2 library," according to developer Zen Studios. This includes all Star Wars Pinball table packs, all Marvel Pinball tables, Plants vs. Zombies (super fun!) and original Zen tables.

"With the release of Pinball FX2 on Xbox One, we have closed the loop and can now offer our fans a complete virtual pinball experience, regardless of their system preference," said Zen Studios VP of Publishing Mel Kirk.

Tables are 1080p at 60 frames per second. Like the goddess intended! Prices for tables range between $2.49 and $2.99, with packs priced at $9.99.
