After landing on the PlayStation, Disco Elysium: The Final Cut is getting a Nintendo Switch and Xbox release.
If you’ve not played Disco Elysium, you might wonder what the fuss is about. True, its art style is absolutely gorgeous, but there’s more to it than that. The writing has been the subject of a great deal of praise but what makes it stand out is the lack of actual combat; it has more in common with a GM-led paper and pen RPG than it does with Baldur’s Gate or any other CRPGs.
The game cast you as a semi-amnesiac detective who, due in part to drug and alcohol abuse, doesn’t know whether he’s coming or going. How do you solve the mysteries that are thrown at you? With great difficulty, that’s how, but by all accounts the journey is well worth taking.
And now Disco Elysium is arriving on Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One. Developers ZA/UM boast that the Xbox version is “not a port but a painstaking re-assembly of the critically acclaimed game”, so it should hopefully be worth the wait. Disco Elysium: The Final Cut, amongst other things, adds voice-acting to the original game and was released on the PlayStation and Stadia in March.
The Xbox and Switch versions will be available digitally for £34.99/$39.99 on the Xbox and £35.99/$39.99 on the Nintendo Switch. There’s also going to be physical versions of the PlayStation, Xbox and Switch versions, which are available to pre-order here. That said, if you’re really flush, or want to show off your love of Disco Elysium, there’s a $249.99 collector’s edition which includes a vinyl statue, a physical, fabric map and more. You can pre-order that version of the game here.
Disco Elysium: The Final Cut will be released digitally on Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S this October 12th, with physical versions, including a PlayStation 4 and 5 boxed copy, arriving this November 9th.
