Those of you who unlocked the achievements before they were added to will need to follow the procedure outlined below to be able to unlock them properly.

Original Story

After going through a Marvel phase, Star Wars now seems to be the flavour of the month for Pinball FX2. The last DLC pack brought three Star Wars themed tables to the game and now the "Star Wars Pinball: Balance of the Force" pack adds another three tables to bring the total up to six. The add-on is available for both the Windows 8 and XBLA version of the title:

Feel the disturbance in the Force in Star Wars™ Pinball: Balance of the Force, featuring three brand new Star Wars™ pinball tables. The pack includes Star Wars™: Episode VI Return of the Jedi, Starfighter Assault, and a table dedicated to Darth Vader.
The DLC adds an extra six achievements to the Windows 8 version of the game for a total of 150G. We're currently uncertain as to whether achievements have been added to the XBLA version of the game. If they have, they are not currently showing on If there are achievements that are yet to be added, they will show up as soon as you start the game after downloading the DLC. Those of you who unlock the achievements now will notice that they are not being added to your gamerscore or achievement total. I would advise holding off from playing the DLC until the achievements are added properly. Unfortunately, those of you who unlock the achievements beforehand will have to recover your gamertag and then earn the achievements again for them to be added to your gamerscore.

"Star Wars Pinball™: Balance of the Force" costs US$9.99 / £6.75 / €9.49 / AU$9.95 / ¥1000. The XBLA version can be downloaded from here, with a free trial available from here if you would like to try out the tables before deciding on a purchase. The Windows 8 version can be downloaded here.
