Postal: Redux kills for the first time on PS4 this year; PC version coming Spring 2016

The Postal Dude is back. And this time, it's personal?


Running with Scissors will be entering the console market for the first time when it releases Postal: Redux.

Postal: Redux was briefly mentioned by Running with Scissors in November 2014, and today, we’re learning the game will be getting a console release on the PlayStation 4 in addition to its original PC, SteamOS, and Mac releases. The PS4 version of Postal: Redux is expected to release after its PC version some time later this year, while the PC version is expected to be released in Spring 2016.

Postal: Redux is being developed in Unreal 4 and will share the same 2D backgrounds with 3D models layered over it as the original game. The game will feature improved graphics and 2-player online co-op. While the option of couch co-op isn’t completely out of the question, the feature is currently up in the air.

As far as its controls, the console version of Postal: Redux will play more like a twin-stick shooter. The PC version will also support twin-stick controls when using a gamepad, but will allow for mouse/keyboard controls as well.

While the core gameplay mechanics of Postal are kept intact, Running With Scissors have included a new Rampage Mode. This new single-player mode is based around a scoring system that encourages an aggressive style of play. Players will need to increase a multiplier by earning consecutive kill streaks, to which players will earn a grade following the completion of each level.
