Join Lee and Clementine in stunning VR as you experience choice-driven gameplay along with original story dialogue from the award-winning cast, in scenarios that include choosing who to save and who to leave behind in a walker attack, solving problems and keeping up morale within the group, searching for food and supplies, acquiring important tools, navigating through the herd amidst an oncoming walker breach, and of course, keeping Clementine safe. As the action unfolds, walkers bear down on you and you fight your way through all five of the table’s episodes to a thrillingly climactic wizard mode. The undead will be so close you can practically smell them!

Already a smash hit on Oculus Rift, Pinball FX2 VR is the premiere way to experience pinball in virtual reality. Pinball FX2 VR replicates the atmosphere of real-life pinball machines in a virtual play space, while presenting gameplay features and effects that you simply cannot recreate on a physical machine, where animated toys spring to life on stunningly active table environments with spectacular depth. Additionally, the game’s scoreboards will track your Pro Score, Team Score, table stats and more to let you compete against players from all over the world! Pinball FX2 VR includes Mars, Secrets of the Deep, and Epic Quest for just $14.99. The Pinball FX2 VR: Season One expansion is also available for $24.99 and adds CastleStorm, Wild West Rampage, Paranormal, BioLab, and Earth Defense to the base game. Even more content is on the way soon!

Pinball FX2 VR hits PlayStation VR in North America and HTC Vive on November 29, 2016 for $14.99, and PlayStation VR in Europe at a later date (we’ll update this blog once we have a date confirmed). The Walking Dead pinball table will be available for Pinball FX2 VR on Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and PlayStation VR for $6.99 on the same day.
