London, June 24th 2003 - Fans of controversial first person adventure game POSTAL 2 are set to enjoy more levels, more weapons, fiercer fighting and better gameplay thanks to a downloadable upgrade pack from world-renowned games developer Running With Scissors. POSTAL 2 is the follow-up to the notorious PC game POSTAL.
"This is POSTAL 2 on rocket fuel. We’ve got Weapons of Mass Destruction, Tora Bora caves and machineguns that fire scissors." Cried a shell shocked Chris Warrender, publishing director of POSTAL 2 publisher Whiptail Interactive.
New additions include the "Obligatory Sewer System" level and the "Tora Bora" level in which you have to find the secret cave hideout of the Taliban. There are also two new difficulty settings "Insane-o" and "They Hate Me" to satisfy those hardcore gamers who thought that POSTAL 2 was too easy as well as enough new and improved weaponry to warm the cockles of all those budding Charlton Heston’s out there.
"This upgrade pack is deadlier than a SAR’s enema. POSTAL 2 now runs faster and hotter than Ben Johnson on steroids." said Vince Desi, CEO, Running With Scissors.
The upgrade contains important gameplay enhancements that dramatically improve the performance of the game. Improved support for joysticks and extra mouse buttons gives greater control while faster transition loading times mean an end to long waits between levels.
The upgrade patch can be downloaded from a number of gaming websites including FileShack.com, FilePlanet.com, GameGossip.com, GamersHell.com, Jucaushii.ro, Pixelrange.ro and WorthPlaying.com.
