It’s important to realize that Disco Elysium isn’t an overly demanding title. The majority of the game revolves around talking with people you meet and walking around the world. There are very few animations which typically means little strain on graphics cards.

The one area where any strain might be felt is in the particle effects. The world is filled with rain and snow, making for a lovely setting – or gloomy, depending on your mindset. In saying this, it really shouldn’t prove to be too strenuous a task for most PCs to handle.

For those who have yet to play Disco Elysium, it’s worth noting that the team at ZA/UM are currently working to bring their title to console. Right now, the plan is to launch the game on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in 2020. If it’s looking like your PC isn’t up to the job, it could be worth holding out for the console port.

As Disco Elysium gains more steam, more players will be looking to join in on the action. Before you take the leap, make sure your PC meets the recommended system requirements to run Disco Elysium or at least the minimum. And for more Disco Elysium content, you’re already in the right place.
