It’s about time
With all these games getting remastered and rereleased these days, you’d think I’d be tired of it by now. However, there is one exception to this. Disco Elysium is truly one of my favorite games of the last few years, if not of all time, so I was over the moon to hear we were getting yet another version of the game, it being a physical copy this time around.
That’s right, we’re getting hard copies of the game’s extended edition, Disco Elysium – The Final Cut, just in time for the holiday season, courtesy of ZA/UM and iam8bit, with Skybound Games helping out with the distribution. The game is available now for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and is also compatible with PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X consoles via a free next-gen upgrade. It’ll run you $39.99 wherever games are sold, and each retail copy will also include an 18″ x 24″ foldout poster and a code giving you access to a digital artbook, which features over 190 pages of content.
Maybe you’re a super fan, and this standard physical copy still isn’t filling the Disco Elysium-sized void in your life. Well, they’ve got you covered with the Collector’s Edition that is also available for pre-order exclusively on iam8bit.com. This $249.99 option will come in a “Layers of the Id” premium box, and will include a hand-painted ‘Mid Totem’ vinyl statue, a hardbound version of the previously mentioned artbook, and a physical PS5 edition of the game with a reversible cover. I don’t know about you, but the preview pictures basically have me ready to sell a kidney to get my hands on it.
If you’re still holding out for the physical Switch version of The Final Cut, don’t worry, we have confirmation that it’s coming sometime in 2022.
Disco Elysium – The Final Cut offers fully-voiced dialogue, new quests, areas, and characters, so even if you’ve played it before, it’s definitely worth picking up again. Plus, you’re getting a poster and an artbook along with it — what could be better than that?
