In development by Running With Scissors is the third instalment in the slaughter frenzy Postal series, Postal III, a TPS Video game. Unlike its predecessors, Postal III will run on the Source Engine, as seen in the popular Counter Strike: Source and Left 4 Dead. In keeping with new changes, Postal III will also be in third person, but all the talk and controversy will bound to return once more upon its release.
Having blown up Paradise with a nuclear bomb, the Postal Dude returns this time to wreak havoc on the town of Catharsis, slaughtering hapless citizen with his arsenal of outrageous weapons, reminiscent of the Grand Theft Auto series. New in his arsenal this time, comes shiny new weapons such as a ‘Badgersaw’, a nail bat and an M60 machine gun. From Postal II comes the favourite gasoline can and matches, but most excitingly comes a laser guided robotic monkey. Simply point the laser at your target, and watch your robotic primate savage your enemy.
The plot of the game is simple enough. The Postal Dude’s car has broken down in Catharsis, and of course, the garage requires money to repair it. Cue the slaughter of hundreds in order to raise the required amount. This game is not for the politically correct, those with a weak stomach or easily offended. If you don’t fit into any of these categories, and on top of that have a sense of humour, then Postal III will be perfect for you, as you roam the streets wielding your insane weapons and encountering thugs, gangs, Sarah Palin, and at one point, even Al Qaeda!
As the third person shooter video game Postal III is based on Valve’s aging Source Engine, the graphics are not meant to be the most stunning around, but it certainly gets the job done. Postal III is scheduled to be released in the first quarter of 2011 on Xbox 360 and on the PC, Windows, Linux and Mac OSX. A Playstation 3 port will be released shortly after, but no confirmed news for mmo. Being another title in the Postal series, Postal III will most definitely bring you hours of fun and entertainment amongst the controversial hype.
