Disco Elysium, a critically acclaimed role playing game is set to receive a massively improved Director's Cut edition on March 30th. The Director's Edition will include the base game, new narrative scenarios, and most significantly, full voice acting. 

Developer ZA/UM claimed that the game's script is over 1 million words long. In comparison, Bethesda's Fallout 4 features 110,000 lines of text. Averaging this out, Disco Elysium Director's Cut looks like it'll feature at least as many spoken lines as that particular Bethesda epic, if not more. 

Apart from full voice-acting, Disco Elysium will also a number of value adds, making for a well-rounded experience. These include several new quests that tie into the player character's political choices, expanding text and storylines for existing characters, and adding entirely new ones into the environment (all, presumably with the extra voice acting). 

The Director's Cut is available as a free upgrade for all owners of the base version of Disco Elysium. To sweeten the pot, ZA/UM currently has the original on sale on Steam for a 20 percent discount. Console owners can pick up the game on Xbox Series S/X and the PlayStation 5. If you haven't already dived into Disco Elysium's brilliantly-realized Revachol, this might be the best time to do so.
