Postal Redux PC Release Date Announced, PS4 Edition Coming Later

New version of the 1997 shooter coming to Windows PCs this month.


Postal Redux, a new version of 1997's third-person isometric shooter Postal, will come out for Windows PCs on May 20, developer Running With Scissors announced today. SteamOS and Mac versions of the game will arrive "soon" after the Windows launch, though a specific release date was not shared.

The game is also coming to PlayStation 4, but not until Q4 (October-December). When Postal comes to PS4, it will mark the franchise's debut on console. An Xbox One edition of Redux has not been announced.

For Postal Redux, Running With Scissors is adding a Rampage Mode. As its name suggests, this mode rewards you for playing aggressively by upping a multiplier for every consecutive kill in a streak. Once a level is cleared, players will receive a grade, and presumably this can be shared via a leaderboard.

"Postal Redux will maintain the elements that made the original Postal world-renowned," reads a line from the game's description. "The grim art style, frightening ambiance, 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."

Postal sequel Postal 2 was released in 2003, with a new expansion called Paradise Lost landing in 2015.
