    Features, Additions And Improvements Coming In The Near Future


    Backglass Animation : FarSight hopes to carry over their backglass tech, featured on Cirqus Voltaire and Scared Stiff, to the rest of the tables in the near future.

    DirectX 11 Support For PC : FarSight is currently working on DirectX 11 support for the PC version which will bring the real-time lighting/reflections of the PS4 version to the PC during the first half of 2014.

    Dot Matrix Display (DMD) Options : FarSight is looking into adding options to change the filter, size, position and possibly the brightness of the DMD in the future.

    Online Head-To-Head : FarSight is in the process of designing a challenge mode within the game to go head to head with a player of your choice. Opponents scores will be displayed on-screen to let you know if you have fallen behind or how much of a lead you have. The concept is still undergoing design, but FarSight guarantees an intense interactive experience to come in The Pinball Arcade.

    Online Multiplayer : FarSight plans to add online multiplayer in the near future.

    Pinball After Dark : FarSight has announced Pinball After Dark which is slated for release in 2014. Pinball After Dark will be a separate app/game which will feature more mature themed tables that FarSight has previously been unable to bring to The Pinball Arcade because of explicit themes. FarSight hopes to bring Pinball After Dark to every platform and device currently supported by The Pinball Arcade.

    Stereoscopic 3D Support For PS4 : FarSight will be adding 3D support for The Pinball Arcade (which may be included in the Mega Patch) on the PS4 in Q2 2014.

    User Adjustable Camera Settings : This feature will include the ability for the user to set the zoom and angle of each table to their preference and is coming in 2014.

    User Interface Overhaul : FarSight is currently in the preliminary stages of building a new and improved interface that will greatly improve the user experience. The new interface will feature flexible options to customize the UI to the user’s preference while at the same time offer a quick start option which will allow users to jump right into a table with ease. The new UI is set to hit all supported platforms and devices in 2014.

    Virtual Pinball Cabinet Support : FarSight has received their virtual pinball cabinet and preliminary work on the build has reached completion. Cab support is currently on PC.


    This thread will be updated continuously with the latest news and information confirmed by FarSight Studios and contains absolutely NO RUMORS.

    Much sadness on the PS3 release date. Oh well, patience is a virtue. (it has been so far) I am currently #s 4 & 19 on the PS3 Medieval Madness leaderboard and am very anxious to put a hurt on the new ones. I buy very few games but, this one is #1 on my game radar.

    Thanks Pin Wiz!

    Another good tidbit of news for iPad owners:

    "We will be showing off the PS3, Vita, 360, and new iPad versions in Texas and updating release dates as accurately as we can."

    Jeff, thanks for keeping this thread up to date since I can't be on the forum 24/7, even though it looks like I already am.

    The Android dlc will be launched at the same time (if not before) the ios version. (In fact they are showing off Bride and Madness at the Texas show now on an Android transformer Prime!)

    Thanks for the update Ryan...was hoping to have the new tables to keep me busy until the TPA is released on Xbox LIVE.

    I was hoping for an xbla release date too, but nothing as of this post. Hopefully we'll hear something from FarSight by tomorrow.

    For those who are referencing Xbox LIVE as having a March 28th release date for The Pinball Arcade, I wouldn't read too much into it since they still list Crave Games as the publisher which is false. That information is obviously old and hasn't been updated since it was posted.

    The odd thing is that it didn't pop up until after it was released on iOS, if I remember correctly. Telling by posts on facebook, it seems Farsight was trying to shoot for the date, though they haven't confirmed it either.

    Just don't want people to get their hopes up reading outdated information.

    but Farsight never denied the information and even said the date was likely at one point. I rather just wait to hear from Farsight before jumping the gun.

    Here's their latest comment on the 360 release date:

    "We're still scheduled for March 28th on 360, but it's up to Microsoft. They rejected the last build because the game didn't work if a guitar controller was plugged in. Seriously! We'll let you know when we hear for sure. It's as frustrating for us as it is for you!"

    Thanks for this Jeff...I must have just missed it. By the way, who in their right mind would want to play a pinball game with a guitar? Microsoft, get real...that issue has nothing to do with the game and you know it. Approval within the next 24-48 hrs. is crucial in getting TPA released on March 28th...stay tuned!

    I know with the SNES super scope, if you left the adapter for it in when playing non super scope games, it actually caused malfunctions in some games. Stuff like starting on the wrong stage in Super Star Wars. I don't think the issue is playing the game with the guitar, but more with not being able to use the standard controller while the guitar is plugged in. Some like to leave controllers plugged in when not playing a game, so I could see it being an issue.

    Yea, I see your point, but an issue like this could be easily fixed with an update shortly after release.

    Or with a small piece of text on the title screen telling you to unplug your guitar controller or the game won't work!

    I hope that the iPad3 version looks close to the 360 version, the resolution of the playfield on the current iOS release is quiet terrible on the iPad3's retina display

    Russell posted some pictures of the iPad 3 version Friday on Facebook, so you'd have to dig down a bit to find them.

    That's strange. They still work fine for me. Maybe you have to be friends with Russell to see them? I'll reupload them to imageshack or something.
