Disco Elysium: The Final Cut is coming to Xbox in October

The physical version will go up in November

Xbox owners who have been patiently waiting to be the absolute worst disaster of a detective possible will soon get their chance. Disco Elysium: The Final Cut is coming to Xbox in October, and a physical version is following soon after.

Developer ZA/UM confirmed on Twitter today that The Final Cut will digitally launch for Xbox on Oct. 12. The physical edition, meanwhile, will arrive on Nov. 9. Pre-orders for the Collector’s Edition on Xbox, as well as PlayStation 5 and Nintendo Switch, are live over at iam8bit too.

The surreal murder-mystery has been working its way onto various platforms since its launch back in 2019. ZA/UM recently confirmed The Final Cut is coming to Switch on the same date as Xbox, on Oct. 12. Earlier this year, Disco Elysium also made its way onto PlayStation.

Disco Elysium: The Final Cut includes the main game, as well as some additional content including fully voiced dialogue and some brand new quests. And that’s all good, because it basically makes an already good game that much better.

Disco Elysium remains one of the highlights of 2019, and one of my favorite RPGs in recent memory, possibly ever. It’s a brilliant story about a man who just can’t seem to get life right, and how he tries to either put it all back together or let it all fall to pieces. And as nice as the redemption story can be, watching things fall apart because of a bad roll is also pretty fun. If you haven’t yet checked out Disco Elysium and you’ve got an Xbox, I’d recommend you mark the date.

Disco Elysium: The Final Cut hits Xbox consoles on October 12, 2021.
