Two Force Awakens DLC tables are coming to Pinball FX2 [official site] next week, see.

As developers Zen Studios explain on their blog, one table will see Rey and chums travelling around fighting the First Order, while the other has Kylo Ren and pals crushing their enemies, seeing them driven before them, and hearing the lamentations of their women.

The tables are due around the 12th. Two-table packs usually cost £3.99. Here, have a peek in this trailer:
