Zen Pinball 2 hits PS4 this week, import your PS3 and Vita content

Zen Pinball 2 fans can import some of their existing DLC into the PlayStation 4 version of the sim when it arrives in this week’s PSN update.

Zen Studios managed to bring 19 tables from older versions to the PS4 port, which with the all-new Doctor Strange table makes for a total of 20 tables on launch day.

If you own any of these 19 tables on PS3 or Vita, you can import them for free – although this only applies to DLC for Zen Pinball 2, not spin-offs like Marvel Pinball. The cross-buy doesn’t work in reverse; DLC for the PS4 version won’t work with the PS3 original.

Here’s a guide to importing your content:

    PS4 Table Import Walkthrough
  1. Press the square button (Import Tables) on the collection screen to start the import process.
  2. Please wait while the game is searching for tables available for import.
  3. If there are tables available to import, the store will offer the next batch of content it has found. Press the x button (Enter) on each offered content’s download icon to add them to downloads, then press the circle button (Back) to return to the collection screen, and if there are still tables to import, the store will offer them in the next batch. Repeat this process until all content is added to the download queue.
  4. Alternatively, if you want to import just a specific table, you can go to the table’s menu, wait a few seconds while the game checks for availability and press the “Download and play!” button when it appears. As the store comes up, press the x button (Enter) on each offered content’s download icon to add them to downloads, and press the circle button (Back) to return to the game.
  5. Wait until all downloads finish (you can check their progress in the PS4 user interface under Notifications/Downloads), and there you go! You can play your imported tables straight away.

The full list of tables is below. Additionally, Sorcerer’s Lair will be available for free for all players.

Zen Studios noted that the PS4 version of Zen Pinball 2 runs in 1080p at 60FPS, and has “the most responsive flippers that we have ever been able to produce”.
