While Kosta already has this on his review radar, it's the first time it's come across my desk and now I'm mad he's shotgunned review duties, because, boy, does this game look like a doozy. Disco Elysium is a *deep breath* "groundbreaking open-world role-playing game with an insane amount of choice and consequence".

Phew.

Here's the official skinny on the game that is now available on Steam and GOG.com right now:
You’re a detective with a unique skill system at your disposal and a whole city block to carve your path across. Interrogate unforgettable characters, crack murders or take bribes. Be a hero, a prophet, a madman and the greatest detective the world has ever seen (impossible as that person is Batman - Ed.).

You’ve never played anything like it.
  • Over 60 hours of game time in a unique urban fantasy setting.
  • An open-world you can approach in any order – the bad part of the bad part of town with unforgettable characters.
  • One massive open-ended case and tons of side investigations.
  • Countless tools for role-playing: 24 mad skills to upgrade, over 80 different clothing items to wear, 12 tools to use, 8 psychoactive substances to discover, more than 50 unique "thoughts" to analyze and so on.
  • A hauntingly beautiful original soundtrack by British Sea Power.
Watch a trailer for the game embedded below.

Bought it, refunded it in 1 minute. No ultra-wide 21:9 support. Surely we're at the point where PC games should have 21:9 support by default these days.

Support is coming post-launch, whatever that means.
