POSTAL III is a dark comedic third-person action adventure, currently being designed by Running With Scissors and co-developed with Trash Master Studios.
Celebrating the tenth anniversary of the POSTAL franchise, this new installment in the infamous series will offer the gaming audience more opportunities to go POSTAL than ever before. Once again cast as the nameless “Postal Dude”, the player will now find themselves trying to survive in Catharsis, Arizona. With the help of the Employment Agency, The Dude drifts from job to lousy job and something always goes horribly wrong. As if that wasn’t enough, the town itself is also going horribly wrong, filled with numerous crazed factions such as the Eco-Zealots, Uncle Dave’s gun-toting Nuns and the Taliban to mention only a few! With lunatics like this running loose, the trick is to keep breathing!
But as always, FREE WILL is the core of POSTAL’s design. The player is NEVER forced to kill, and many amusing non-lethal approaches to gameplay are always available. In addition, the player has three paths available at all times The Good, The Bad, and The “Insane”. Depending upon how the player behaves in the game, they will find themselves on one of these paths ranging from being a respectable authority figure to being hunted like a criminal.
The Postal Dude’s arsenal will be enhanced with new outrageous weapons such as The Badger Saw and more. A reactive environment, robust physics engine, complex NPC AI and a multitude of never-before-seen gameplay elements make POSTAL III a true next generation sequel to the cult videogame franchise.
