'Postal Redux' (ALL) Adds Co-op, New Maps Coming - Trailer

by Rainier on Aug. 23, 2016 @ 10:58 a.m. PDT

Postal Redux is a twin-stick shooter where players take control of The Postal Dude as he battles to survive in a world gone MAD.

Play as The Postal Dude in his first appearance in a video game. Just good antisocial, psychotic shoot-'em-up action, strategy and government intervention. Crazed gunmen are out for blood and wait around every corner. Players fight back with a destructive arsenal as they make their way through a kill-or-be-killed psychological thriller.

One major addition to Postal Redux  is Rampage Mode, a new single-player mode based around a scoring system, which encourages an aggressive style of play by increasing a multiplier for each consecutive kill in a streak. Players will receive a grade following the completion of each level.

Postal Redux will maintain the elements that made the original Postal world-renowned. The grim art style, frightening ambience, the omnipresent "demonic voice" and the marching band will be faithfully recreated in this modern day take on a title which became a symbol for free speech in gaming.

Running With Scissors' classic 19-year-old twin-stick shooter, will receive a two to four-player online co-op mode via a free update, with six additional maps coming at a later date.

Co-op will allow players to team up with friends or bots to take down relentless gunmen and highly-aggressive law enforcement throughout the game's 17 levels. Finishing  POSTAL Redux with an ally will unlock an all-new ending. The co-op update will also add cheat code support, in case wanton destruction takes precedence over a fair fight. Cheat codes will be revealed through  Running With Scissors' Twitter account, but some codes from the original  POSTAL  will still work.

A second free update launching at a later date, will allow players to fight their way through six newly-remastered levels, including remakes of the maps from the Special Delivery expansion pack released in 1998; EZMart, La Palamino Resort, Earthquake and ShantyTown .

Two additional remastered levels from the Japan-exclusive Super POSTAL will make their Worldwide debut, allowing many players to tear through the Tokyo and Osaka maps for the first time.
