The collection adapts classic Gearbox series with these tables:
- Borderlands®: Vault Hunter Pinball: One of today’s most popular first-person shooters is now a pinball game full of hootin’, lootin’, and jackpot shootin’! As a Vault Hunter searching for the biggest prize of your life, take out any Psychos, Skags, and Bosses that stand in your way.
- Brothers in Arms®: Win the War Pinball: Stick close to your brothers as you complete missions and liberate towns within France and the Netherlands – now armed with a silver ball and your skills. Help SSgt Matthew Baker and the 101st Airborne in day and nighttime missions and claim your place on the leaderboards.
- Homeworld®: Journey to Hiigara Pinball: Use your skills to strategize, build up your fleet, and carry out missions. Fight in huge space battles inspired by the Homeworld games, and use your armada to great effect as you earn jackpots and the high score.
Gearbox® Pinball will be available for $14.99 as a three-pack or as part of Pinball FX’s monthly Pinball Pass subscription, along with more than 70 other tables at launch. Homeworld: Journey to Hiigara Pinball is the only one of the three tables currently playable via Pinball FX early access through the Epic Games Store.
Pinball FX evolves the world’s leading digital pinball brand with stellar original tables as well as many based on entertainment’s biggest brands, allowing players to customize their own 3D dream game room – the Pin Hall – full of collectibles and rewards unlocked by playing the game.

In the months and years following Pinball FX’s initial release, players can expect exciting new features – most notably Pinball Royale, a frantically exciting multiplayer action mode incorporating battle royale-style gameplay.
