Postal 2: Share The Pain offers both an enhanced single-player version of the original Postal 2 as well as four multiplayer options, including a Capture-the-Flag variant dubbed "Snatch" that employs the booty-full Postal Babes. Among the 25 characters who populate the game, which is rapidly becoming a favourite among LAN gamers, is RWS spokesperson Gary Coleman.
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.
A multiplayer patch for Running With Scissors' POSTAL 2 – is now available via download as a very special gift to the POSTAL Community. Co-created by RWS member Jon Merchant and POSTAL mod master Kamek, with support from various members of that storied game community, the patch dubbed 1409X is prepared to prove that the long wait for its arrival was well worth it.
"1409X is a collection and vast improvement of the greatest and most commonly used POSTAL 2 multiplayer updates, game types and fixes, all organized into a nice little patch," explained Merchant. "It also fixes some bugs based on community feedback and adds three new DeathMatch maps, eight arena maps and a Snatch map."
1409X also adds many new features for Mappers to mess with, as well as some new Editor functions. With these updates installed, POSTAL 2 becomes one of the most configurable online games ever produced.
Jon Merchant extended special thanks to Mod Man Kamek for "making all this possible" and to POSTAL Community members that "helped with ideas, testing and feedback, most notably Mr Downerup of www.downerup.com and Rob Myth from the DKT clan."
