Twelve years after Postal 2‘s release, developer Running With Scissors has released a new expansion – Postal 2: Paradise Lost.
Set 10 years after the events of Postal 2: Apocalypse Weekend, the ultraviolent first-person shooter puts you back in the shoes of the Postal Dude for some fresh mayhem. Like the original, Paradise Lost sets itself up as an in-game week of free-roaming (Monday to Friday – it seems Postal Dude doesn’t work Weekends), with errand-based missions taking place in new areas such deserts, under ashen skies, in rainy foliage and full-on nuclear war. Original voice actor Rick Hunter reprises his role as the Postal Dude, which is bound to go down well among fans.
“Our fans have given us so much and we proudly honor them with our version of unadulterated fun. We welcome all gamers – old and new – to play and deliver themselves from evil in the new Paradise Lost. We love you,” said Vince Desi, CEO of Running With Scissors.
Whilst taking place in the original game’s hometown of Paradise, full-controller support, new weapons, items and abilities are just some of things featured in this new expansion. Graphics are still the same as the original, and people looking to purchase this expansion will require the original Postal 2 in order to play.
The current price for Paradise Lost usually costs $8.00USD/£5.59, but is currently on 15% discount for $6.80USD/£4.75. You’ll need the base game in order to play it though, which bumps up the price a little if you don’t already own it Mac and Linux versions of Postal 2: Paradise Lost are expected to be released later on in the year.
