Star Wars Pinball VR launches April 29 with eight amazing tables: The Mandalorian and Star Wars Classic Collectibles – two tables never released anywhere else before – are joined by six remastered favorites, including Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, Star Wars Episode V: The
Empire Strikes Back, Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Star Wars Rebels, and Masters of the Force.

Star Wars Pinball VR upgrades the Star Wars Pinball experience with new features exclusive to this release, like the fully customizable “fan cave,” which houses your pinball table as well as many Star Wars helmets, blasters, lightsabers, and other items earned through successful play. Total Immersion mode allows you to experience everything at table level, and fully 360-degree minigames surround you with iconic Star Wars set pieces.

Pinball is underrated in VR. Not the real thing, but depth perception is great, where you can find subtle angles by moving your head around and getting views to shoot for higher points. It's definitely different than just starring at a flat screen and judging.

I've never played a VR pinball game, but this description makes a lot of sense. In that regard, it probably feels a lot closer to playing an actual pinball machine.

How many times are they going to milk this, bought it on my switch after years ago paying for all the tables on PS4, now they release in VR with limited amount of tables.

If you can just buy the Switch ver

Higher resolution and ray-tracing upgrades will make it even closer - perfect for shiny pinball. Hopefully, we get a new engine making these improvements.

Cool, but I always felt like Zen's original tables are a bit lacking compared to the Williams/Bally stuff.

On one side I'm happy Zen goes the extra mile when adapting the tables to VR, adding animations and flourishes outside the table itself. On the other side this limits the amount of tables we have in VR.

With the newly announced iteration of their Pinball FX platform, I hoped every table would just be playable in VR without having to purchase a separate game, even if it meant ditching the pretty backgrounds and animations. Just put me in a generic room with the table and no frills, so I can play all of my normal tables in VR.
