Retro Platformer ‘The Messenger’ Gets Free Beach DLC

When you’ve got a game about a ninja delivering a scroll to stop a demon army, there’s only one way to truly add to the experience. Beach DLC. Or at least, that’s at least what the developers of retro platforming game ‘The Messenger’, Sabotage, seem to have thought. And you know what?

I think that’s an absolutely fantastic idea. I mean, technically the DLC is more of a tropically themed expansion pack, but you get the idea.

Among the announcements during the Devolver Digital E3 Press conference, 2019 was ‘Picnic Panic’, a free DLC expansion that will arrive on the 11th of July. This expansion is said to come with three new levels that cap off with some appropriately themed boss fights. On top of that, they’ve also brought back the original composer, ‘Rainbowdragoneyes’ to make 18 new music tracks for the content.

You can find the trailer below if you haven’t seen it already.

The Messenger is available now on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and PC, with the DLC dropping on the 11th of June. You can read our own review of the original game over here. Victor absolutely kills it. And he’s going to kill it again when we force him to write about this later.
