Disco Elysium: The Final Cut is Heading to PC, Consoles in 2021
Developer ZA/UM announced Disco Elysium — The Final Cut during The Game Awards 2020. Final Cut is the definitive edition of Disco Elysium, with new quests and full voice acting. In addition to a PC release on Steam, GoG, and EGS, it's coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Google Staida, and the App Store in March. It will then launch on Xbox Series X|S and Nintendo Switch sometime next summer.
Disco Elysium follows a detective in their attempt to unravel their past after waking up with a killer hangover and no memory. The Final Cut goes further, exploring the detective's political ambitions, letting players turn back time, rebuild their party, or just get rich fast.
The game earned praise when it first released in 2019 for letting players shape nearly every aspect of their experience by focusing on the protagonist's specific stats.
In our review of the game, Ty Arthur said:
Disco Elysium is RPG of the year. Hell, maybe even the decade. I can't think of any other RPG in recent memory that managed to provoke the same level of awe and desire to keep playing.
The Final Cut features full voice acting for every character and new quests that let players shape the world even further than the base game. It will feature 4K, 60fps on PlayStation 5 (other consoles weren't mentioned in the press release we received), and most importantly, it will be a free upgrade to those that already own the game. Otherwise, it will retail for $39.99.
A collector's edition of Disco Elysium: The Final Cut will be available sometime in 2021 for PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch. It will retail for $249.99 and include an "innovative 'Layers of the Id' premium box" and be "region free." Here's what's inside:
Hand-painted ‘Mind Totem’ vinyl sculpture
190+ page hardbound art book feat. oodles of previously unreleased art and stories
Illustrated fabric map of the District of Martinaise
Physical edition of Disco Elysium with reversible cover, housed in an elegant slipcase
Finally, two limited-edition Disco Elysium vinyls are currently up for pre order on iam8bit's website. Both are three LP sets, one coming with a standard jacket and another, limited to 2,000 copies, with "an origami design that unfolds to reveal a larger illustration." You can find both here.
