Metallica Fans Vote Two New Songs Into Band’s Signature Pinball Machines
You may have heard about Metallica's own signature pinball machine, and if you're lucky, you may have even manned the flippers on one. Either way, the developers of Metallica Pinball recently polled fans to vote two new songs into the game, with 'Ride the Lightning' and 'Blackened' coming out on top.
Last year, Stern Pinball revealed their first Metallica game, which went over-the-top with Metallica imagery and boasted an impressive list of tracks from the legendary thrash band. 'Metallica Premium' machines (pictured above) may be even more visually stunning, but for the first time, fans were given the opportunity to help develop the machines by voting an additional two songs into the game.
'Ride the Lightning' and 'Blackened' were the two tracks selected by fans, as revealed by Stern earlier today (March 21):
STERN PINBALL, INC. has posted new Metallica code (Version 1.51) for all models of Metallica Pinball. As most of you have heard by now, the voting has closed and the fans have spoken! Stern is thrilled to announce that the new code will include the songs “Ride the Lightning" and "Blackened" for the Metallica Pinball game! This update will also provide enhanced lightshows and other refinements.
This release is in addition to Stern's March 7th Metallica code update that contained numerous game play enhancements including "Crank It Up" modes and the "End Of The Line" wizard mode. Band member feature is coming soon. Stay tuned!
This update can also be found on their website, www.sternpinball.com, in the game code library.
