ZA/UM has announced that Disco Elysium will be coming to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and hopefully within the next year (via The Escapist).
The game was met with critical praise and follows the story of a detective who begins their story crumpled up in the clutches of a deathly hangover. They don’t remember how they got there or what they did to deserve the intense pain in their noggin, which permits players to shape their hero to their own design. Exploring the fictional dystopia Revachol, the player will investigate the murder of a man found hanging from a tree… or they’ll be out dancing all night. They’ll reconnect with a lover, or they’ll pervert the course of justice and accept bribes from potential informants.
‘Become a hero or an absolute disaster of a human being,’ ZA/UM said succinctly, and now the console community can get in on the action. The studio wants to deliver Disco Elysium to ‘as many people as possible’, and it’s also working on Chinese and several European language translations. ‘We’re going to port it next year to PlayStation and Xbox. We need to be very hands-on with the design of that. We don’t want to hire a porting company,’ said lead designer Robert Kurvitz. ‘We think it really is going to lend itself very well to console play because you don’t need to go over minute tactics and use a mouse because it’s very narrative in its nature.’
Disco Elysium is out now for PC, and will come to PlayStation and Xbox One in 2020.
