It seems that Disco Elysium: The Final Cut will not make its way into Australia.

Disco Elysium: The Final Cut will not be released in Australia. According to ScreenHub, the Classification Board of Australia refused classification for the game, effectively banning it. The refusal for classification seems to be due to the use of drugs within the game, which Australia is very strict against. Since players can engage in heavy drug use in Disco Elysium, it would make sense that the game would be banned in the country. The original version of the game is still available in Australia through Steam, as it was not submitted for classification at the time. Since The Final Cut will be coming to consoles, the game had to be submitted. 

Disco Elysium: The Final Cut was officially announced last year at The Game Awards. The Final Cut will be making additions to the game. This includes full voice acting and new quests. The Final Cut will feature full controller support, and allow players to customize so they can play the game with their preferred setup. The PlayStation 5 version of the game will run at 4K with 60 fps. Gamers who already own the original version of Disco Elysium will be able to upgrade to The Final Cut at no cost. 

In Disco Elysium, players take on the role of a detective with an unique skill system at their disposal. Gamers have the freedom to play how they want, and are able to intimidate, sweet-talk, resort to violence, write poetry, sing karaoke, dance, or solve the meaning of life. They can become a hero, or a disaster of a human being. Players can customize their character however they want, and carve their own path in an open world. How the game plays is up to the player. 

Disco Elysium: The Final Cut will release for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Google Stadia on March 30th. The game will make its way over to the Nintendo Switch and Xbox consoles later this year.
