Pinball FX 2 gets new Mars table

And there's more on the way.

Xbox Live Arcade hit Pinball FX 2 gets a new table next week, developer ZEN Studios has announced.

You'll be able to download a Mars-themed stage from 20th April for 240 Microsoft Points.

"Set in the year 2100, the human race has finally managed to set foot on the Red Planet," read the official description.

"Players will uncover hidden secrets which have long eluded life on planet Earth, and open eyes to a world never before discovered.

"Featuring a beautifully crafted landscape, interactive 3D objects and multiple missions and side quests, MARS continues the rich pinball tradition established by ZEN Studios."

Pinball FX 2 was released as a free XBLA download back in October, with a number of additional tables then made available for purchase. Eurogamer's Kristan Reed came away very impressed, awarding the game 9/10.

ZEN has promised that the Mars table is the first of many new additions due this year.

"We apologise for the long wait between table releases, but rest assured, there are a bunch of tables lined up for the rest of 2011," read a post on the game's official site
