FarSight Studios has taken to Facebook to announce The Pinball Arcade players will getting a “bunch more” Bally and Williams tables now that its WMS license has been extended.
The first release will be the 1989 pinball staple The Black Knight 2000 which itself is a sequel to the 1980 table, The Black Knight.
“A bunch more Williams and Bally tables are included in this deal that will let us keep preserving awesome pinball for as long as our sales stay strong,” reads the post on The Pinball Arcade’s Facebook page (via Polygon).
“Kicking us off will be the long awaited Steve Richie masterpiece, Black Knight 2000. The Black Knight rides again in this brilliant sequel to the Steve Ritchie hit from 1980. Players take on the role of good versus evil as they battle the Black Knight in high velocity gameplay.
“The game is all about speed and quick reactions, highlighted by features such as an upper and lower level, repeating U-Turn and Skyway Loop shots rewarding accurate shooters and a Drawbridge that lowers to reveal a ramp. The patented Magna-Save feature from the original game is back. This allows players to activate a ball saving magnet preventing balls from draining.
“Great scores are achieved by collecting Lightning Wheel Awards, scoring Hurry-Up bonuses and playing the three awesome Multi-Ball rounds, including The King’s Ransom Wizard mode. 5,703 units of this table were produced.”
No word on when to expect the release.
The Pinball Arcade is available on Android, iOS, Linux, PC, PlayStation 3, PS4, PS Vita, Xbox 360 and a Wii U version is in the works.
