POSTAL 2: Paradise Lost DLC Released

Steam now offers POSTAL 2: Paradise Lost, a DLC pack coming just 12 years after the release of POSTAL 2, Running With Scissors' intentionally outrageous first-person shooter. This carries a 15% launch discount, and for those who have been holding off on the commitment to POSTAL 2, Steam also has that on sale for 90% off, making it $0.99, a fraction of the cost of the DLC. Here's word on the new content:
Running With Scissors is thrilled to announce the launch of "POSTAL 2: Paradise Lost" via Steam.

The original POSTAL 2 was released 12 years ago and is more popular than ever. While highly controversial, POSTAL 2 is loved by fans for its crazy humorous gameplay and still played and enjoyed today. POSTAL 2's "overwhelmingly positive" status on Steam (95%+ on over 9000 user reviews) gave reason to birth a larger than life load of new DLC for this game.

Fans of POSTAL 2 will be glad to hear that Paradise Lost brings back The POSTAL Dude's original voice actor, Rick Hunter, along with other lovable and familiar characters. The DLC is set 10 years after the events of POSTAL 2: Apocalypse Weekend presenting the Dude with bigger and more bizarre challenges than ever before. Shoot, kick, fire-bomb and Piss your way through the days errands trying to find......toilet paper! A CLEAN ASS IS A HAPPY ASS!

Paradise Lost features a full week (Monday through Friday) of free roaming, errand based missions PLUS all new weather zones, dual wielding power ups and NEVER BEFORE SEEN BOSS FIGHTS!

The Gimp loves me. I don't know how many t-shirts I won but I won everything that is the original Postal.

T-shirts, the game, a strategy guide and a nice holiday poster that to this day adorns the door to my room.

I've got everybody's signature on it.

I have the EXACT same story. I got a signed poster, strategy guide etc. from them. I can't remember why they sent it to me but I used to have a lame Postal site when I was in high school. Don't judge me.

That's cool man! They really got involved with the community and rewarded us for our dedication.

I still remember that I got my first t-shirt for submitting tons of bugs. The Gimp was disappointed that they weren't the creepy-crawly kind.

DAY 1 Buy for me! Too many serious games these days, Postal is just great fun and a perfect way to release steam after a long and frustrating day at the office.

Still trying to figure out what those gun wielding monkeys keep saying.

It looks like the guy who runs it, Vince Desi, has a day job at a medical equipment company: https://www.linkedin.com/pub/vince-desi/0/118/66
So he probably keeps Running With Scissors open with spare money from his day job.

I've got everybody's signature on it. Though it's a re-print. BUT that's ok because it was a bundled package for winning the grand prize at a HappyPuppy.com essay contest about the fictional or non-fictional time you almost went Postal.

Little did they all know that I was only 15 years old and not legally entitled to be winning that contest, part of the closed beta, on the mailing list etc.

By the way.... When you blow your own brains out in the original Postal they forgot to make the blood stay and I convinced them to do it. Also if you kicked a severed head around in Blood that was my idea too (closed beta participant).

*sigh* Those were the good old days. The days when you could potentially influence the development of a major title if you could get in on the closed beta.

Now who's up for some Battlefield 2142????

Edit: By the way... I hear Postal 3 wasn't made by RWS so you can't really criticize them. The reality is Postal was really fun and Postal 2 DOES have an "overwhelmingly positive" rating on Steam.

Just because there's a new influx of players doesn't mean that rating isn't relevant. I can't quite wrap my mind around that one.... The older the technology (what was this, Quake 2 engine???) the harder it is for a game to maintain relevancy.

ohhh, I remember that HappyPuppy website... it was a game related file hosting site like FilePlanet?

Postal 2 is one of the best shooters I ever played... Open world, freeform, tons of interactivity, funny, one of the first shooters to have a real physics engine, fire physics, etc...

Is the expansion really worth it though? It looked more action oriented rather than exploration oriented like the original.
For a buck? I'd bite.

OK thank you. I purchased the game tonight and my god but the graphics are pretty appreciatable to this day!

Yeah the npc models aren't so hot but some of the environmental textures are pretty damned good! I must say that I am impressed.

And I'll be damned but the dirt in the first level is a shittier version of the amazing photorealistic textures in Battlefield 3/4/Hardline. No joke!!!!!!! It's good.

It's a mishmash of Unreal Engines 1 and 2.

I've always wondered that too. They've only ever put out three games, most of which were critically panned and largely didn't sell and Postal 3 was such a disaster, it basically didn't work and still doesn't. I know at first, you could only buy it in Russia. Either they're a quietly awesome contract developer or there's something really shady going on there.

POSTAL 2's "overwhelmingly positive" status on Steam (95%+ on over 9000 user reviews)

It's been out for ages, virtually everyone buying it will be a fan of the series re-buying a digital copy. Of course people will vote in favour of it.

More Postal 2 for $6.79? Alright, I'll bite. It's such an incredibly stupid game, but stupid can be fun.
