Following its October 15 launch on PC, ZA/UM’s detective RPG Disco Elysium is preparing to make the jump to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One sometime in 2020.
USgamer sat down with designer and writer Robert Kurvitz, who confirmed the in-development console port. “[W]e are going to port the game to consoles so you can play on your PlayStation and Xbox. So, you know, that’s my message to you guys for 2020,” Kurvitz said. “It plays really, really nicely on a controller because […] you don’t need to click around and give specific tactical commands, which the controller isn’t very good at.”
Bringing Disco Elysium to consoles isn’t the only job developer ZA/UM is currently working on. In conjunction with the console port, a Chinese localized version of the game is also in the works. Further, an art book with new behind-the-scenes art is in development, as well as an official release of the game’s soundtrack.
Disco Elysium launched on GOG and PC earlier this month. The game puts you in the shoes of a detective tasked with interrogating characters, cracking murders, and solving mysteries. It allows you to construct your own detective persona. You can be a hero, a prophet, or a madman, with plenty of choices to make and copious mistakes to contend with.
