Great news for Postal fans, as the third part of the series – that is slated for a December 10th release – will also be available through Valve’s distribution service, Steam. Sadly, there is no pre-order available as of yet but this is good news as Postal 3 is a somewhat low-budget title that will be hard to find in launch date at your local retail shops. This digital distribution might also give a boost to the game’s sales, meaning better support and possible patches.
Postal 3 is developed by Running with Scissors and published by Akella. Contrary to its previous parts, Postal 3: Catharsis will be a third-person shooter title and it will continue and expand upon the sandbox-style design of its predecessor, Postal 2. It was also said that it’d include motion captured performances by a wide array of celebrities, including Ron Jeremy, Jennifer Walcott, Randy Jones, and Uwe Boll, director of the Postal film.
The game will be also making its debut to consoles, as it will be released to X360 – and possibly to PS3 – at a later date.

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
