What Is The Callisto Protocol?

The Callisto Protocol Monster The Callisto Protocol Release Date

A space horror title in the vein of Dead Space, directed by the co-creator of Dead Space, Glen Schofield.

It’s a narrative-driven third-person survival horror game, just like Dead Space was. You play as Jacob Lee, an inmate at Black Iron Prison on Jupiter’s Moon, Callisto.

While you’re there, inmates begin to transform into disturbing monsters, and it’s up to you to shoot and fight your way out of there while you attempt to discover what exactly happened here.

The chunk of gameplay that we’ve already seen revealed a series of gory deaths for some of the inmates, followed by an incredibly painful and gory-looking death for your player character, so we can expect that this game will be quite a disturbing experience all around.
