Postal III is an upcoming third-person shooter video game in development by Running With Scissors. It is the third game in the Postal video game franchise and is scheduled for release in North America in 2011 for Linux,[1] Mac OS X,[2] Microsoft Windows and Xbox 360. A PlayStation 3 port was announced in later stages of development, which will probably be released shortly after the initial release.[3] The game was developed under the working title Postal 3: Catharsis until October 18, 2006, when the finalized title was revealed to be Postal III.[4][5]

Postal III will continue and expand upon the sandbox-style design of its predecessor, Postal 2, as well as include motion captured performances by a wide array of celebrities, including film stars and Playboy Playmates.[6] It has also been stated that Uwe Boll, director of the Postal film, will appear in the game.[7]

In Postal III, The Postal Dude emigrates to Paradise's sister town of Catharsis (he blew up Paradise with a nuclear bomb)[8]. Unlike its predecessor, the game will not be based on the Unreal engine but rather on the Source engine. Also, Postal III will be a third-person shooter, rather than its predecessors Postal 2 which is a first-person shooter and Postal which is isometric.

Early gameplay footage of the game being played at E3 2008 reveals new weapons such as "The Badgersaw", a nail bat, an M60 machine gun and the return of the gas can and matches from Postal 2. A new concept of weapon is a test lab monkey which will react to a laser pointed by the Postal Dude. Product manager Mike Jaret revealed in an interview that there will be "special vehicles" in the game such as Segways.
