The original “offensive for the sake of being offensive” top-down shooter Postal is getting a HD remake for current generation platforms.
Postal and its sequel Postal 2 are often regarded in the gameosphere as games that were “offensive for the sake of being offensive”. In Postal 2 for example, there is a weapon slot dedicated to urinating on things. Well the good news for those of you who didn’t get your fill of “unstable nutjob goes on a murder rampage” from Hatred, the original Postal is getting a HD remake for current generation platforms.
Postal Redux will come to Windows, Steam OS and Mac in Spring 2016, and will make its console debut with a PS4 release later in the year. The game is a top-down shooter, putting players in control of “The Postal Dude” as he goes on a destructive killing spree.
In addition to all of the original content, Postal Redux will feature some new goodies, such as 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.
“Even with all the noise surrounding Postal, gamers focused on the experience, playing the game by the millions, giving it great user reviews and helping us not only survive, but flourish. Postal Redux is a love letter to our fans,” said Vince Desi, founder of developer Running With Scissors.
Let’s just hope this doesn’t spur Uwe Boll on to make another movie…
