Pinball Arcade Packs 1 and 2 Hit the Marketplace

Pinball Arcade Packs 1 and 2 Hit the Marketplace

A new trailer for Pack 3 too

Written by punkyliar on 01 August 12 at 12:57

After months of delays and certification issues, the first two table packs for http://www.trueachievements.com/Pinball-Arcade-xbox-360.htm have finally been released onto the Marketplace. For some reason, both packs have been issued with May release dates, I'm assuming that it's in the hope that you didn't notice the delay.

The first add-on pack includes Medieval Madness and The Machine: Bride of Pin•Bot. Check out the trailer here for footage of both trailers in action. The "Two table add-on pack #1: Medieval Madness™(1997) and The Machine: Bride of Pin•Bot™(1991)" DLC costs 400 MSP and can be downloaded from here.

The second add-on pack includes Cirqus Voltaire and Funhouse. There's a preview video for the former here, while the latter gets a preview video here. The "Two table add-on pack #2: Cirqus Voltaire™ (1997) and Funhouse™ (1990)" DLC costs 400 MSP and can be downloaded from here.

Both of the DLC packs add two achievements to your gamerscore - one for each table in the pack and worth 15G each. Unfortunately, these are yet to be added to Xbox.com. 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. 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.

Those of you who are looking forward to the release of more tables for the game will be glad to know that Farsight Studios are already making plans for two more table packs. We have a new trailer that showcases the two tables arriving in "Table Pack 3": Gorgar and Monster Bash.



"Table Pack 4" will include Creature from the Black Lagoon and Black Knight, although more details on these are yet to be revealed. Tomorrow is due to see the release of a title update that corrects some of the issues found in the original launch tables. We'll let you know when we have more details, including a release date, on DLC packs 3 and 4.

Was about to pick this up immediately until I read the article fully so in the interest of only getting the achievements once I will wait.
I am really REALLY hoping that they release the "Playboy" table at some stage. I wasted so much money on that table in my high school days.

I had completely forgotten I had this game and stumbled across it a few days ago and wondered if it would ever receive more tables. Glad to see it has!

Kind of lame that each pack has a table from the full retail disc, even though paying 400 points for a few of these new tables is totally worth it.

The first pack has Medieval Madness (old) and The Machine: Bride of Pin•Bot (new). The second add-on pack includes Funhouse (old) and Cirqus Voltaire (new).

Table Pack 3 will have Gorgar and Monster Bash. And Table Pack 4 will include Black Knight and Creature from the Black Lagoon.

Also note that the ONLY achievement for the newly released packs are to set a Top 5 local score. The easiest achievement of the originals. FarSight said in hindsight (wink) the achievement should probably have been to beat the wizard goals. And on the future tables will likely be changed to that.

All in all, more pinball is a good thing. smile

Recovered gamertag and new highscore achievement for Bride Of Pinbot is gone and no savegame data lost. Still the update hangs at 99%. The new tables look very good though.

Just a warning guys the title update introduced a bug which can erase your progress make a copy of your save before applying the title update to avoid any troubles.

I found this out the hard way...

It looks like a lot went wrong with this updates and DLC packs. ^^

I just downloaded the packs and got the 4 (ja, only 4) achievements in no time. There was a title update on launch and than the game prompts me to download another update (the table bugfix) that can't be downloaded as it stops at 99%.

Loosing the achievements is no big deal in this case as they are pretty darn easy to get. All you have to do is get into the local TOP5 on each table. They are worth 15p each.

Just bought the game so I declined the update until I know it's fixed. I'll wait for the achievements to show up here before I buy the DLC.

delighted that we are finally getting some new tables - gutted that there is only 1 chevo per table and not even for the wizard goals.............

I just got a PM from TA with the cheevos, does that mean it works now? :)

I think they work. I won them earlier and it says so on my friend feed. Although on the page for the game it still says no tracked gamers have won so maybe not. I was wondering why it seemed so easy to move up on the leaderboards, people probably aren't really playing yet.

The achievements will work - they've been added to Xbox.com - it's just that TA hadn't updated yet this morning.
