The Final Cut marks the first time the game will come to consoles. This version will have all of the content that was present in the original game plus full English voice acting, additional quests, and a brand new area of the world to explore.

Those who already bought Disco Elysium will not be left out, too. Owners of the original game will get The Final Cut for free in the form of an update.

The Final Cut will also be making its way to Xbox consoles and the Switch sometime this summer.

Disco Elysium – The Final Cut is very much meant to be the definitive way to play. When the developers at ZA/UM started creating the game, they knew that this version was the one they wanted everyone to play.

While speaking to Polygon in February, lead writer Helen Hindpere said “In many ways, [The Final Cut] is the Disco Elysium we dreamt of launching when we started development in 2014.”

Disco Elysium – The Final Cut was announced at The Game Awards last year in the form of a new trailer. The announcement came with a somewhat vague March release date.

With more than half the month already passed, some were sceptical as to whether or not the game would make that window. Those worries should be quelled now with this news.

Disco Elysium originally came out on October 15, 2019, on PC and was almost immediately met with critical praise. It won countless awards from The Game Awards, DICE, GDC, and the BAFTAs, among others.

The top-down RPG has players take control of an alcoholic detective who has to solve a murder. What sets the game apart is that everything is done through dialogue trees, skill checks, and dice rolls. This makes the game more like a pen-and-paper RPG, as opposed to something more akin to the Elder Scrolls series or even Pillars of Eternity.

With Disco Elysium – The Final Cut coming out on PS4 and PS5 on March 30th, hopefully more gamers will be able to get their hands on this critically acclaimed game. However, for those who cannot wait, the base game is currently available on Steam, the Epic Games Store, GOG, and Stadia for PC and macOS.
