'Disco Elysium' Announced - Screens & Trailer

Disco Elysium is a blend of isometric RPG and hard-boiled cop show set in a unique urban fantasy world.

What kind of cop are you? Good cop? Bad cop? Utter failure? That is the question explored in Disco Elysium.

You play a disgraced lieutenant detective in Revachol West, a shore town where corruption’s out of control, murders go unsolved, and the kids just wanna dance. Kick in doors, interrogate suspects, or get lost exploring a gorgeously rendered city and unraveling its mysteries. All the while, tensions rise around you as Revachol threatens to explode.

Disco Elysium’s completely original skill system makes your innermost feelings, doubts, and memories an integral part of every conversation. Level up your rational faculties, sharpen your wits, or give in to your basest instincts. What kind of cop you are is up to you.

Game Features:

  • A massive, open-ended case you can solve however you choose.
  • An utterly unique urban fantasy setting where bell-bottoms meet muzzle-loaders.
  • Set-piece combat sequences you can avoid or dive into at your peril.
  • A character system that lets you build your own cop persona with 24 colorful, psychological skills.
  • Ditch your cop uniform for real disco threads to impress, intimidate, or seduce.
  • An inventory of your thoughts where you can research clues and then put them to use in the game.
  • Original score by the rock’n’roll band British Sea Power.

Disco Elysium is being published by Humble Bundle and is releasing the second half of 2018 on Steam. It
