Zen Studios and Marvel Entertainment today announced “Marvel Pinball: Avengers Chronicles,” releasing this spring as DLC for “Pinball FX2” on Xbox Live Arcade, “Marvel Pinball” on PlayStation Network, and a standalone download for PlayStation Vita. Each table in this brand new four-table pack chronicles blockbuster events experienced by Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.

“Marvel Pinball: Avengers Chronicles” features four tables designed to tell a more cohesive story from the actual comic or movie material, while incorporating the most dramatic elements as gameplay. Fans of previous “Marvel Pinball” tables will experience a fresh approach to the critically-acclaimed series, including deeper character interactions, more dialogue, and the most explosive action to date.
-“Marvel’s The Avengers” table reflects the events of this summer’s highly anticipated blockbuster, pitting all six Avengers against Loki’s invasion of Earth. Nick Fury commands the team of Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, each character represented by a customized ball that echoes his or her own appearance and power set.

-Hulk Smash! After the Hulk’s banishment to outer space, he returns to Manhattan to seek revenge against the Illuminati and wage war against the X-Men, Iron Man, the Fantastic Four and Doctor Strange in “World War Hulk.”
-The Silver Surfer and Adam Warlock enlist Earth’s Mightiest Heroes–including you–to recover the six Infinity Gems from Thanos and save the universe in “The Infinity Gauntlet.” The intense pinball atmosphere heightens as each Infinity Gem produces a special effect on the table, such as literally flipping the table upside down with the Reality Gem.

-The Avengers must defeat Odin’s long-banished brother, the Serpent, and free the world from the grip of chaos in “Fear Itself.” Featuring a table design unlike any to date, Fear Itself utilizes magnetic energy in ways no one has ever before experienced on a pinball table.
“The collaboration between Zen Studios and Marvel Entertainment is a brilliant display of passion, excitement and energy. “Avengers Chronicles” represents a historic moment in videogame pinball,” said Mel Kirk, Zen Studios’ Vice President of Marketing and Public Relations.
“Marvel Pinball: Avengers Chronicles” will integrate seamlessly into “Pinball FX2” on Xbox LIVE Arcade and “Marvel Pinball” on PlayStation Network, and be a separate, standalone download on PlayStation Vita. The pack will feature Achievements and Trophies, social leaderboard integration including in-game scoring notifications, table guides and hot-seat multiplayer.
