'Postal 2: Share The Pain' Coming This Christmas

Notorious game publisher Whiptail Interactive is set to give thousands of twisted POSTAL 2 fans a stab at murdering their mates with the latest incarnation of the "Goriest Game of All Time", a multiplayer version of POSTAL 2. Built by world-renowned game developer Running With Scissors, 'POSTAL 2: Share The Pain' will go on sale in mid-November in all serious gaming outlets across the UK, Europe and North America. The multiplayer upgrade will also be available for existing owners of POSTAL 2 to download for free from the website at the same time as the launch.

"Who said killing hundreds of innocent people had to be a lonely affair? Now serial killers, mass murderers and lovers of blood, violence, death and gore can come together in the collective slaughter of 'POSTAL 2: Share The Pain'," confessed a proud Vince Desi, governor of gore at POSTAL 2
developer, Running With Scissors. "Of course, it's just a game..."

"All my sadistic dreams have now come true," sobbed a spent Chris Warrender, publishing director of POSTAL 2 publisher, Whiptail Interactive. "Players can now choose to play against each other as a variety of characters, including a gun-toting Gary Coleman, a PVC suited S&M gimp, a torturous Taliban terrorist or our very own POSTAL DUDE."

Gary Coleman, governor of California runner-up and celebrity guest star of POSTAL 2, added, "I may have been beaten at the ballot box by Schwarzenegger, but I can still go home and relieve myself by kicking the collective butts of his constituents with some multiplayer POSTAL 2 action."

World-renowned game developer Running With Scissors has taken the concept of multiplayer to disturbing new depths in 'POSTAL 2: Share The Pain'. Playing arenas are richly packed with weapons to maim, burn, gas, shoot and kill your opponents, as well as health bottles that can make you better or can be dropped strategically to callously snare opponents.

Features including super-slick gameplay and even slicker blood-splatteringly gory graphics ensure that 'POSTAL 2: Share The Pain' gives an even more bone crunchingly realistic feel than that experienced in any previous version of the game. Uprated weaponry is balanced so that each weapon offers players a different trade-off between accuracy and ease of use. 'POSTAL 2: Share The Pain' players also get a morbid warning when they are in someone else's gun sights and milliseconds away from death.

Multiplayer games offered include both standard DeathMatch and team DeathMatch tournaments as well as POSTAL 2's own version of Capture the Flag, called SNATCH, in which you fight to capture a POSTAL BABE.

'POSTAL 2: Share The Pain' includes the upgraded POSTAL 2 PC game with shorter transition times between levels and smoother, slicker gameplay in addition to the multiplayer option which can be played against friends and strangers online or over a LAN (local area network).
