One of last year’s best games, the anti-capitalist detective RPG Disco Elysium, is headed to PS4, PS5, PC and Stadia in March of next year, followed by Xbox Series X/S and Switch in the summer, with new quests and features.
The new version, titled Disco Elysium - The Final Cut, will add full voice acting for every character, additional quests, and be free to everyone who’s already bought the game. On PS5, the game will support 4K graphics at 60 fps.
Are you ready to hate yourself all over again?
The Final Cut’s new content includes an entire new area in the city, new NPCs, and more choices to regret. Few games have married branching storytelling and skill trees the way Disco Elysium has, and it’s long overdue on console.
However, creators ZA/UM didn’t mention Xbox One, Series X/S, or Switch during tonight’s announcement at The Game Awards. The developers had previously announced that the game would eventually come to some of these platforms as well. It’s unclear if those are also still in the works, or if there might be some kind of timed-exclusivity in play for the PlayStation release. [Update - 8:59 p.m. ET, 12/10/20: Per a press release from ZA/UM, the game will come to Xbox Series X/S and Nintendo Switch sometime in summer 2021. An Xbox One version wasn’t mentioned].
Disco Elysium won the most awards of any game at 2019's Game Awards, including best RPG of the year.
[Update - 11:57 p.m. ET, 12/11/20: Stadia has been added to the list of platforms getting Disco Elysium - Final Cut in March.
