ZA/UM has announced it has released the Working Class update for Disco Elysium which lowers the minimum specifications to get the game to run on older PCs and Macs. Whats more is that ZA/UM is planning to continue optimising the game until it can run on even more machines. How far they will get is anyone’s guess but more people should be able to play Disco Elysium. The new specs are as follows:
Windows 7 and DirectX 11 compatible video card (integrated or dedicated with min 512MB memory). 2GB RAM, Intel Core 2 Duo, 20GB hard disk space.
- MacBook Pro: from mid 2009
- MacBook Air: from mid 2012
- iMac: from late 2009
- Mac Pro: from late 2008
- Mac mini: from 2009
To mark the changes some patch notes were released alongside the news.
- First – moved to a new version of Unity, which itself has tons of optimizations and goodies.
- Hunted, found and fixed weird cases on some resolutions where the last word of the sentence was missing. Like …
- Corrected some typos and some wordings, to mean things. To say stuff.
- Literally, hundreds of optimizations throughout the game and graphics engine, to streamline the code and to make it less resource hungry. To reach a wider audience.
- Fixed some animations – like fixing out of sync hands.
- Fixed some other animations – running and walking around after consuming various liquids
- Fixed broken menu navigation functionality. All that was accessible is still accessible.
- Updated end-credits. Play it through to see some new names!
In addition to the Working Class update more language support is being worked on with ZA/UM currently prioritising Spanish, Korean, Russian, Portuguese-Brazilian, French, and German. The studio has opened up a survey to find ask the players what other languages should be added to Disco Elysium
