The Messenger by Sabotage has been nominated for "best indie debut game" and "best independent game" at this year's Game Awards, so it's obvious this is a special release. So, how do you make an indie title like this even better? With a free quality of life update, of course.
If you missed the news on the weekend, the next update for The Messenger will include "new mystery" and a New Game Plus mode. There'll also be a jukebox added and the ability to remap controls. In preparation for the release, Game Director Thierry Boulanger has uploaded a video on the official Sabotage YouTube channel showing off all of this new content. The video, which can be viewed above, runs for six minutes and contains spoilers.
Towards the beginning, Thierry also mentions how the team is holding off on a "big announcement" regarding what's next for The Messenger and says it will be revealed at the 'Kinda Funny Games Showcase' on 8th December. The quality of life patch update is expected to arrive "around" 20th November - with the date to be confirmed soon.

Still have this game on my wishlist. Glad it's doing well!
I love this game. I really like the new game plus ideas.
More excited for the big announcement than the update. Wonder if it's a sequel?! Or maybe a dlc with a new campaign of sorts..
Great game, still need to finish it but this damn cowboah game is to good to put down.
@Kalmaro just buy it. It is the third best indie launched on switch this year after Celeste and hollow knight (it is way easier than those even though is challenging and it's only real fault is that right now you can do everything in under 15h or maybe 10h I'd you're really good at this kind of games)
@Balta666 but... My wallet D:
@Kalmaro lol fair point.
P.s:even though I believe is like 10 max 15...
Best Indie game this year for me. The soundtrack is oh so amazing.
@nintendobynature If I had to guess, probably a PS4/Xbox One announcement.
@Ryu_Niiyama - Just wondering where is that gif from in your profile picture?
Perfume x Mercedes Benz commercial. (Next stage with you is the song.)
This is best game people aren’t talking about.
@Balta666 what about Bloodstained?!
@Alto hate the game with my whole soul. Tank controls must die in hell!
And it is coming on Physical Switch...even better to wait.
Look forward to getting back into this.
