A fully voiced Disco Elysium is scarier than ever

More On: Disco Elysium

In unexpected ways, Disco Elysium is an assault on the senses. The painted levels are surreal even in their realismEven the skill tree is visceral and frightening. But now, with the March 30 launch of a fully voiced Disco Elysium, this intimidating point-and-clicker adds your ears to its battering of your eyeballs.

Disco Elysium – The Final Cut is the definitive edition of the groundbreaking role playing game. Pursue your political dreams in new vision quests, meet and question more of the city's locals, and explore a whole extra area. Also enjoy full voice-acting, controller support, and expanded language options.

I'm going to admit that this is one of those games I'm always threatening to get back to, but never do. I'm a long ways past my Sierra adventure gaming days, and while Disco Elysium appears to sidestep every expectation I have of the genre, I kept getting that same old stuck feeling I'd always get in a 1980's King's Quest. Also, I appreciate the developer's genre bending by referring to Disco Elysium as an "open world role-playing game," but if you go into this expecting Assassin's Creed or The Witcher or Skyrim, you're going to have a bad time.

Disco Elysium – The Final Cut is a free upgrade for all existing owners of Disco Elysium. But also on March 30, the game is coming to PS5 for the first time.
