Pool Nation FX – PS4 Gameplay Video


It only seems like yesterday that we had a Pool game for the PlayStation 4, you can check out the review for Pure Pool here. But the folks over at Cherry Pop Games want to steal the crown from Pure Pool and had it to their game, Pool Nation FX. Check out the gameplay video below, as well as some new screens and information.

The concept:

For us, the next in the Pool Nation series needed to simply be better; we knew we’d set the bar high, but to excel we knew we need to think outside the box (or in it, as the case may be). We needed to dig deep into the roots of what keeps pool current through the generations, find our own relationships with pool and provide that experience to gamers. As you will see, Pool Nation FX is much more than just a pool game – it’s your pool game, developed with you in mind!

An Epic announcement:

We can now, officially confirm that Pool Nation FX was indeed developed using Unreal 4, the engine of choice for Gears of War, Infinity Blade, and many more big titles. We have been extremely excited to unveil this news, It was an amazing opportunity for us which we grabbed with both hands – Unreal4 gave us the chance to create something truly epic, taking the game of pool to uncharted territories and we can’t wait to show you more!
