Developer Announces DLC For 11-Year-Old Game

Running With Scissors' Postal 2, the insane first-person shooter where you rampage through the small town of Paradise in Arizona, was released on April 14, 2003. It's old. You can get it for a few bucks at GOG, it's that old. And yet, over eleven years after it first came out, Postal 2 is getting a new expansion pack.

The existence of a whole new expansion pack for an 11-year-old cult FPS might come as a surprise, but if you look at how many free updates the game's got since its Steam release — new guns and new features, many of them coming from popular mods — it's a bit more understandable. According to Running With Scissors themselves, fans have been requesting a new expansion for quite some time.

"To be honest we never even thought about making an add-on for Postal 2 until it became obvious that the core Postal fans and new blood gamers would love it," RWS told Inside Gaming Daily. "Running With Scissors has always functioned more like a club than a company. Over the years we have survived with fans becoming interns and interns becoming team members... And since the beginning it seems no one wanted to help us out except our fans, real gamers, that's what makes the whole Postal/RWS story so rich."

The Paradise Lost DLC pack for Postal 2, featuring the Postal Dude's return to Paradise after an eleven-year absence, will arrive to PC this Fall.

    What it needs is an update to not give me motion sickness. I'm not sure what causes it but this game is the only game that has ever done it. I tried playing it again a few months back and it still gives me a crippling headache.

    That game was so stupid, also kind of hard. Still it's hard not to be amused by a cheat code that turns your bullets into cats, and then and another one that lets you turn on slow motion, and then firing the cats in an arc into the sky so when they hit the ground in a chain you get this amazing slow-mo gib fountain.

      i think you mean the cat silencer

        No not the cat silencer, although that is still on the end of the gun. The cheat turns your bullets into cats... I believe its "rockincats" or something to that tune.
