Sony have announced that Zen Studios have developed a pinball table based on Marvels upcoming blockbuster Avengers: Age of Ultron, which is set to be released on Zen Pinball 2 for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita.
The Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron table will allow players to relive the struggle of Earth’s mightiest heroes, including Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow, and Hawkeye against Ultron and his seemingly endless army. The table features dedicated game modes for each member of the Avengers team, including a first-person sharpshooting mini-game starring Hawkeye, a spectacular aerial melee combat sequence between Iron Man and Ultron, and selectable difficulty levels (Easy, Medium, or Hard) to cater to each player’s individual skill level.
As Sony said in a blog post on their website about the upcoming pinball game:
“As you know, we have created many other Marvel Pinball tables, but nothing is quite like getting to work on a table that is based on a big blockbuster movie like Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron. It’s both exhilarating and a bit overwhelming to base a pinball table on a film as it is being made! Often times, final decisions about the film (like costumes, lines, etc.) have not even been made while we’re designing the table, so we have to be able to change with the film as needed. It really keeps us on our toes! We also have to stay true to the filmmakers’ vision while still creating something uniquely fun. Piece of cake, right?
“Timing a table release with a film’s release is always a challenge; we have to be careful that there are no leaks, and most of all, no movie spoilers! Marvel’s Avengers is a hulk of a franchise (pun intended!) and we cannot express how proud we are that Marvel trusts us to do the job well. We’re stoked to be a part of this and that we get to share it with all of you. We truly hope you enjoy this table, the film, and more Marvel adventures yet to come.”
The Avengers: Age of Ultron pinball game will be available from April 21.
