POSTAL 2 and Paradise Lost 5023 Update – Plus GOG.com Release!

p2_2018update

Phew, this has taken a while! As we just recently finished up our long promised update for POSTAL Redux, we then got to work on finishing up some other overdue promises for everyone’s favorite urination simulator POSTAL 2, and today we are proud to announce that those promises have come to pass. We have just rolled out the new 5023 update for POSTAL 2 and Paradise Lost, on Steam and GOG.com!

Starting with POSTAL 2, owners on Steam may have been frustrated for quite a while with a bug making them unable to light gasoline trails – well, no more! Throw those matches and watch that pink fluid erupt in a magnificent flame (just be cool about fire safety). But that’s not the only bug we’ve gone back and fixed – we’ve also patched up a bug that would make the user’s mouse cursor appear over the game after using the voting booth, and we’ve also finally lowered the volume of the Napalm Factory cutscene, so that your eardrums don’t get punished every time you do another playthrough. We’ve also added new language options for Spanish, Portuguese and Turkish, and we’ve rolled out the subtitle and voice over language options for Mac and Linux owners so that more and more people can have easy access to the fun of standing in line for that $5 milk. Meanwhile Paradise Lost is finally getting subtitle options of its own, in English, Chinese and Portuguese, in addition to a whole bunch of bugfixes and adjustments.

We’re also pleased to finally have some good news for GOG.com users – not only are you receiving the latest 5023 patch for POSTAL 2, but you’ve also finally gotten Paradise Lost as well! This is long overdue, and we sincerely wish we could have gotten this done sooner, but it’s finally here for real this time we swear, and we hope that this means that you all can finally enjoy the full P2 experience and the work that we’ve put into it over them many years.

But hey, that’s just a small overview of some of the more notable changes and fixes. Feel free to scroll down and check out the full patch notes for more deets. We love you all, and we thank you for your patience with us! <3 Now go away and leave us alone, while we work on new stuff!
