As you may have noticed in the patch notes for the last big 20th Anniversary Update, one of the features that we've brought back in is the original Santa Patch content. This was a free patch that we released on our website back in 1997 as a holiday gift for our fans, which we have now brought back into the Steam version of the game. It activates automatically from now, until December 31st.
What the patch does is replace the 3D models of the Grenadier enemies to ones of Santa Claus himself, the grenade and molotov models to those of Christmas presents and the ostriches to reindeer. It also replaces some of the enemy voice clips to new ones of Santa Claus chastising The Postal Dude for his naughty behavior.
We hope this retro holiday addition brings some joy to your holiday season, and that your violent video game rampage feels appropriately festive!
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays,
Running With Scissors!
