What you need to know
- Disco Elysium first released in 2019 on PC.
- The game is coming to consoles as Disco Elysium: The Final Cut.
- One new feature is the Political Vision Quests, mutually-exclusive quests that explore character alignments.
Disc Elysium: The Final Cut is bringing the acclaimed role-playing title to consoles but not without some interesting new quests. Speaking with Push Square, the developers at ZA/UM discussed the Political Vision Quests, a feature that was originally intended for the original game but wasn't able to make the cut.
These are four mutually exclusive quests, one keyed to each of the game's four major ideological alignments. These quests (or some version of them) have actually been planned for a long time, but unfortunately they didn't make it into the original release, so the Final Cut has been a great chance to revisit some ideas that have been on our minds for a while and really do them right.
Writer Justin Keenan notes that these quests allow players to really explore and look "behind the political posturing" that much of the game's dialogue is based around.
Disco Elysium: The Final Cut is coming to PS5 in March, while it'll arrive on Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S at some point over the summer. It'll run at 4K 60 FPS on PS5 and presumably Xbox Series X, while the game now has full voice-acting for its wide, eclectic cast.
