Hello PlayStation folks! It’s ZA / UM here to let you know that our award-winning urban RPG Disco Elysium is coming to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 in March 2021. We’re delighted you are all seeing it.
We’ve called the version you’ll play Disco Elysium – The Final Cut because we’ve been busy finishing everything we wanted to do with the game since its PC release in 2019, and putting a nice little bow on it.
We’ve added over 150,000 words with new quests that let you explore your character’s political dreams – you’ll set out to rebuild your party, get really rich, or try to turn back time. Expect to see some truly monumental sites along the way, meet new characters, and explore a whole new region. If you’re playing on PlayStation 5, you’ll be able to experience Disco Elysium – The Final Cut in 4K resolution and 60fps.
We’re also excited to announce that after hundreds of hours in the recording studio, Disco Elysium now offers full voice acting for each character, so you can read the entire game aloud. The number of supported languages has also been increased to include French, German, Russian, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese and Korean so that more people around the world can enjoy it.
Disco Elysium tells the story of a detective who wakes up in a dilapidated coastal neighborhood with a headache and only a few remembrances remain. You set out to find out what happened to him in the unique world we have created. We brought together disco music, vintage motor cars, and post-revolutionary angst for our decor, and brought it all to life with real oil paintings.
You have the kind of freedom to explore anything that is only truly experienced when playing tabletop role-playing games like Dungeons & Dragons. In fact, Disco Elysium started life as a table game with rules and dice rolls. That’s why the great moments in the game are decided by the roll of the dice and why we made sure that failing those rolls is just as fun as succeeding.
Adapting the tabletop experience allowed us to create a story with an absurd number of possible outcomes. We’ve written over a million words to account for the many ways to approach and resolve every situation – whether it’s solving a murder, singing karaoke, hustling a billionaire, or solving meaning. of life.
But you won’t be alone when you tackle the challenges our world presents. Unlike other RPGs, all 24 skills in Disco Elysium have distinct personalities that speak to you from inside our main character’s head. They come in four broad categories: intellect, psyche, physics, and motor skills. You can upgrade these skills to increase your skills and unlock new solutions.
Put dots in the hand / eye coordination and you can grab a coin in the air and look cool doing it. Or really increase your physical instrument skills and you might be able to fight your way past a bulldozer-built man blocking your way. Likewise, if you don’t have a high perception skill, you might be missing out on details in the surrounding area that might help you with your investigation.
Then there is the Thought Cabinet. As you ask, chat or chat with the citizens of our block, you will encounter new thoughts. These are placed in your thought cabinet, which is an inventory of thoughts, where you can cook them over time to become part of your identity. This gives you more dialogue options that can help you progress or potentially get you in trouble.
This covers most of the basics of Disco Elysium – The Final Cut. The rest you will have to uncover yourself. Which just leaves us thanking everyone for the support and wishing you well as you set out to become an absolute hero or disaster of a human being.
