"A Phenomenal RPG from start to finish, you can't go wrong with Disco Elysium, it's awesome." - Karak Karak (ACG)




"The Final Cut elevates Disco Elysium from an already phenomenal RPG to a true must-play masterpiece." - (10/10) - IGN



"The Final Cut opens this strange world up to a wave of new superstar detectives on console, and the additions provide a rewarding return trip for the rest of us." - (9/10) - GameInformer



"Disco Elysium: The Final Cut is the definitive version of an already brilliant game. It’s a melding pot of eccentric characters, thought-provoking social commentary, and a staggering sense of world and place within its setting. Its main narrative might fumble in its conclusion, but everything you’ll experience before that is some of the best stuff you can find in this kind of RPG." - (PressStart AU) - 9.5/10

I’m interested but this looks like it may be another game I don’t have time to play through consistently. Currently trying to make my way through Kingdom Come Deliverance in earnest.

You can complete it in around 15 to 20 hours, it's only if you want to do as many sidequests as you can and explore fully that it can take upwards of 30-40 hours, and this is the kind of game that encouraged multiple playthroughs to see everything.

Great job on the OT! Looking forward to this since I have heard so much about it from the original release.
Thank you my friend! I can't wait either, I have friends who adore this game but I have been holding out for full V/A and now it's on PS5 I have no reason to not play this game, it will be a fantastic experience I'm sure!

Oh no, don't think that restraining myself from buying the game is going to be easy for me. :) It's just the type of game I want on my shelf if possible.
I totally get you, it's times like this where I regret getting a PS5 DE, even though I rarely used discs on PS4 there is a certain beauty to having a really nice physical edition on display.

Cool OT.

I heard so many good things about this that i will pick it up at launch on PS5.
The amount of effort that went into the update needs to be praised as much as the good will of the developer.

I hope i can contribute to this thread in the future.

Thank you my friend, was my first effort so means a lot!

I'm in the exact same boat, will be picking it up on launch for PS5 and am very excited to finally see what this game is about! And I totally agree, an amazing update from ZA/UM and deserves the praise it is getting industrywide.

And of course man! Am always happy to collaborate, if you ever think of any cool ideas do not hesitate to send me a private message! Hope you and your loved ones are doing well and are having a good 2021 so far!

Great job Don!

Really looking forward to this. Hopefully it’s available at midnight so we can dive right in. Thread should be fun in the coming weeks.

Thank you brother! Glad you like it.

Same here, have been waiting for this since ZA/UM first discussed Console ports, I would imagine it will drop at midnight, I hope it does anyway as I need to dive into this game! My 17 days off work begin on April 1st so will be great to make this the game I dedicate my time to during the break!

And it will be fun seeing what outcomes people get and the opinions they have on characters they come across in the coming weeks for sure!

Just got it on GOG for $10 (thx GOG regional pricing!!).

Have been wanting to check it out for a while, and between the update and the sale it seems like the perfect time.
