POSTAL Redux, an HD #remaster of the classic 19-year-old #shooter, will arrive on Steam, May 20th for Windows PC. This is more than just a remaster, the #release will include new levels and a challenging new gameplay mode called Rampage. SteamOS and Mac gamers will be able to enjoy POSTAL Redux soon after the Windows Release.
With the new powerful addition of Rampage, POSTAL fans will go wild. The outrageous single-player game play mode rewards an aggressive style of play by increasing a multiplier for each consecutive kill in a streak. Players will receive a score and letter grade following the completion of each level. Rampage Mode will incentivize gamers to replay levels using different strategies to increase their score. Players will be able to compete with their friends for the highest scores on Steam. Rampage gives gamers endless hours of fun, with its addictive and replayable gameplay.
One of the new levels, The Carnival, will give gamers the opportunity to explore and battle through an amusement park filled with classic rides including a Ferris wheel. A new final level will also be added.
POSTAL Redux takes place in a world gone MAD. Crazed gunmen armed to the teeth and overly-aggressive law enforcement will shoot anyone. Players control The POSTAL Dude, a man who lives by his own rules and is teetering on the brink of sanity, as he fights back with a high-powered arsenal through a kill-or-be-killed psychological thriller.
The core of what made the original POSTAL world-renowned returns as strongly as ever in POSTAL Redux; the tense atmosphere, demonic narrator and unapologetic subject matter is faithfully updated in this modernized version of one of the most iconic symbols for free speech in gaming history.

Postal arguably inspired the more recent controversial game Hatred, which similarly follows the exploits of a mad man mowing down innocent civilians.
Postal Redux will be available on Steam for Windows PC coming May 20th. With Linux, SteamOS and Mac to follow. Hopefully we will see as sale taking place as well.
