Disco Elysium – The Final Cut coming to PS4 and PS5 In 2021

The urban RPG arrives with new quests, full voice-acting, and an extra area.

Hello, PlayStation people! This is ZA/UM here to tell you that our award-winning urban RPG Disco Elysium is coming to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 in March 2021. We’re very excited for you all to check it out.

We’ve called the version you’ll be playing Disco Elysium – The Final Cut as we’ve been busy wrapping up everything we wanted to do with the game since releasing it for PC in 2019, and putting a pretty 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 filthy rich, or attempt to turn back time. Expect to see some truly monumental sights along the way, meet new characters, and explore a whole new area. If you’re playing on PlayStation 5, you’ll be able to experience Disco Elysium – The Final Cut in 4K resolution and at 60 frames per second. 

We’re also thrilled to announce that after hundreds of hours in the recording studio, Disco Elysium now has full voice-acting for every character, so you can have the entire game read out loud to you. The number of supported languages has also been increased to include French, German, Russian, Spanish, Brazilian-Portuguese, and Korean so more people around the world can enjoy it.

Disco Elysium is about a detective who wakes up in a rundown coastal district with a banging headache and only a few dregs of memory left. You set out to discover what happened to him inside the unique world we have created. We’ve thrown together disco music, early motor carriages, and post-revolutionary angst for our setting, and brought it all to life with actual oil paintings.

You have the kind of freedom to explore it all that’s only really experienced when playing tabletop role-playing games, like Dungeons & Dragons. In fact, Disco Elysium started out life as a tabletop game with rulebooks and dice rolls. This is why big moments in the game are decided by the roll of dice and why we’ve ensured that failing these rolls is just as fun as succeeding.

Adapting from the tabletop experience has enabled us to engineer a story with an absurd number of possible outcomes. We have written over a million words to accommodate the many, many ways you can approach and tackle each situation — whether it’s solving a murder, singing karaoke, hustling a billionaire, or solving the meaning of life.

But you won’t be alone as you tackle the problems that our world presents. Unlike other RPGs, the 24 skills in Disco Elysium have distinct personalities that talk to you from inside our main character’s head. They come in four overarching categories: Intellect, Psyche, Physique, and Motorics. You can level these skills up to increase your proficiency in them and unlock new solutions.

Put points in Hand/Eye Coordination and you’ll be able to catch a coin flicked through the air at you and look cool doing it. Or really pump up your Physical Instrument skill and you may be able to strong arm your way past a man built like a bulldozer who’s blocking your path. Likewise, if you don’t have a high Perception skill you could miss out on details in the surroundings that may help with your investigation. 

Then there’s the Thought Cabinet. As you interrogate, sweet-talk, or gossip with the citizens of our city block you’ll happen across new thoughts. These are put into your Thought Cabinet, which is an inventory for thoughts, where you can cook them over time to become part of your identity. Doing this gives you more dialogue options that may help you progress, or potentially get you further into trouble.

That covers most of the basics of Disco Elysium – The Final Cut. The rest of it you’ll have to discover yourself. Which just leaves us to thank everyone for the support and to wish you good luck as you set out to become a hero or an absolute disaster of a human being.

  • I’m super excited! Thanks ZA/UM for bringing it to PlayStation. I’ve heard a lot of good things about this game and i can’t wait!!

  • One of the best games of last year. March is loaded now, Returnal coming as well.

  • This is most excellent news I was going to buy on pc and I still might after I get a tastesl on my ps5

  • Fantastic news! Thank you!

  • I’m waiting for this to happen ever since the game was originally released. Day 1 for me. Thanks for bringing it to playstation and also to NS!

  • For anyone reading this. PLEASE, play this game. Yes, it has some original and fun rpg elements, but is one of those narratives that explores the human behavior and psique in such a unique way. One of my favorite games of all time for sure.

  • Eeep, I been waiting, amazed the switch version will come out so much later… but so it goes. Getting it on the ps5

  • Woah I heard good things but this is the first time I’ve read anything about it. I’m super intrigued now. I kind of want to try building a mentalic character inspired by Asimov’s 2nd Foundation and see where it goes from there.

    60fps 4K is already a great incentive for getting it on PS5, but may we expect any dualsense features as well?

  • Was looking at getting this on Switch. Now I have no idea. But DualSense support could sway me. ;)

  • Been waiting for this to come to consoles. So glad it’s coming to PS5 first and not Switch so I don’t have to wait longer. Day 1 buy. Would be cool if you could add some DualSense support to it.

  • So excited! Thank you so much devs for bringing this to Playstation. I can’t wait to jump into the world you created. Been dodging spoilers since its release.

  • First I have ever heard of the game. After watching the preview, it will definitely be added to my list of definite purchases.
