To celebrate, the UK-based studio dropped a freshly cut trailer to showcase the mystery detective title in action. Go ahead and check out the new footage down below:
As you can see, the new video sheds light on the seedy underbelly of the titular world of Elysium, while also giving us a glimpse of the isometric political CRPG’s moment-to-moment gameplay. Its bleak tone and painterly art-style are some of the game’s most unique qualities, but it also offers multiple branching quest-lines and is incredibly well-written, too.
Our very own Zhiqing Wan reviewed the game on PC back in 2019 and loved her time with the title ultimately awarding it a 4.5/5, concluding:
Disco Elysium is gritty and unapologetic, witty and bleak, and forces you to deal with your darkest demons and self-doubt. And I wouldn’t have it any other way.
For those unaware, Disco Elysium originally came to PC in 2019, although a newly-revamped version of the game – titled Disco Elysium: The Final Cut – came to PC, PS4 and PS5 earlier this year. This latest iteration boasts new voice work, new art and animations, new songs and new quests. Acclaimed English indie band, British Sea Power, even helped write the soundtrack.
The award-winning Disco Elysium: The Final Cut is out now on Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5 and PC digitally.
Meanwhile, physical editions release on Nov. 9 for PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, while a Nintendo Switch physical version is penciled in for a 2022 release.
