BLACK KNIGHT SOR PRO (Stern) Pinball Machine
Stern Pinball, Inc. proudly announces the availability of a new pinball machine 40 years in the making: the iconic pinball character, the Black Knight, returns to entertain a new generation of pinball players with the third game in the BLACK KNIGHT™ franchise, BLACK KNIGHT: SWORD OF RAGE™
For the first time, players will explore, discover, and unlock the secrets of the BLACK KNIGHT universe. Navigating through mysterious and twisted realms, players uncover foes, demons, riches, and secrets in their quest against the Black Knight.
BLACK KNIGHT: SWORD OF RAGE™ pinball machines are available in Pro, Premium, and Limited Edition models. “There’s nothing more iconic in the pinball universe than the Black Knight character,” said Gary Stern, Chairman and CEO of Stern Pinball, Inc.“
Created by game designer Steve “The King” Ritchie, the Black Knight has always taunted and antagonized players to battle him. Now, for the first time, players will fight back.
Stern’s BLACK KNIGHT: SWORD OF RAGE™ Pro, Premium, and Limited Edition models feature stunning, distinctive hand-drawn art created in homage to this pinball icon. Each game features a custom sculpted interactive, and multi-functional Black Knight bash toy. This Black Knight figurine features a bi-directional motorized flail, a glowing LED illuminated RGB helmet with individually controllable expressive lighting. It responds and taunts players with custom speech and a sliding coil-driven shield that bashes and blocks shots.
All models include “Magna-Save”, a player-controlled magnet used to prevent a ball from draining and timed resetting drop targets.
BLACK KNIGHT: SWORD OF RAGE™ features a legacy sound score composed and performed by Scott Ian of Anthrax with Brendon Small. There's an adrenaline rush audio experience for players with custom speech by Ed Robertson of Barenaked Ladies.
The Premium and Limited Edition models both feature transparent upper playfield with a unique 3-ball lock mechanism, providing an opportunity to achieve a 6-ball multiball.
The BLACK KNIGHT SWORD OF RAGE LIMITED Edition – 600 units produced globally – includes additional unique features such as: exclusive mirrored backglass, anti-reflection playfield glass, shaker motor, exclusive custom art blades, custom autographed bottom arch, sequentially numbered plaque, and exclusive battle art custom themed cabinet artwork.
Complementing the immersive theme and exciting game play experience, Stern Pinball’s powerful SPIKE™ electronics hardware system enables high-definition graphics and innovative animations on the color video display. The SPIKE™ platform reduces system complexity and energy usage resulting in enhanced reliability and simplified servicing. The state-of-the-art electronic system also powers a high-fidelity 3-channel audio system that is three times more powerful than audio systems of previous generations.
