After nearly two years since it was first revealed at The Game Awards 2020, Krafton and Striking Distance Studios have finally released The Callisto Protocol on PC and consoles worldwide.
This new survival-horror game is helmed by Glen Schofield, the creator of the iconic sci-fi horror game, Dead Space. This new game is sort of a spiritual successor to Dead Space as it also features a terrifying sci-fi horror setting and story.
Though there are some key differences. Aside from being a brand-new IP, the game features a bigger emphasis on melee combat, meaning players are going to have to get up close and personal with horrifying foes.
Callisto also features a cast of popular stars, including Transformers star Josh Duhamel as Jacob Lee, The Boys star Karen Fukuhara as Dani Nakamura, and Sam Witwer as Leon Ferris.
The game’s premise is described as:
“Set on Jupiter’s dead moon Callisto in the year 2320, The Callisto Protocol challenges players to escape the maximum security Black Iron Prison and uncover the terrifying secrets of the United Jupiter Company. Players will need to search their surroundings and adapt their tactics, using a unique blend of shooting and close-quarters combat to survive a mysterious outbreak that has thrown Callisto into chaos.”
The Callisto Protocol is now available on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC (via Steam and the Epic Games Store). For more info on the game, visit the official website.
