It finally happened! After wowing PC players and critics last year, Disco Elysium comes to both PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 in March 2021. It'll feature new quests as part of a Final Cut edition. Announced as part of The Game Awards 2020 following a tease earlier this week, developer ZA/UM has taken its sweet time over the course of 2020 to deliver a worthy console port after originally revealing it would happen in November 2019. Of course, PlayStation 5 players will be able to experience the isometric RPG through backwards compatibility.
The reason we're so excited to finally check out Disco Elysium for ourselves is largely down to the critical praise it received on PC. Sitting on a Metacritic rating of 91, there must be something special to this tale told entirely across just a couple of streets. "You’re a detective with a unique skill system at your disposal and a whole city block to carve your path across. Interrogate unforgettable characters, crack murders or take bribes. Become a hero or an absolute disaster of a human being." 24 different skills govern speech checks while clothing items and tools help to shape the character you want to be. Player choice really is at the heart of this one.
Death, sex, taxes and disco – nothing is off the table. Revachol is a real place with real challenges. Solve a massive murder investigation, or relax and kick back with sprawling side-cases. The detective decides, the citizens abide.
Again, we'll be able to play Disco Elysium in March 2021. What sort of character will you role play as? Pass the speech check in the comments below.
