Krafton and Striking Distance Studios today announced a release date for their upcoming sci-fi horror game, The Callisto Protocol. The game will be launched on December 2, 2022.
In addition to the launch date, we also got a new look at the gameplay. It looks very Dead Space/System Shock, with the protagonist, Jacob Lee, battling disgusting, deformed monsters. According to a PlayStation blog post, Jacob is imprisoned in the Black Iron Prison on Callisto’s moon. The monsters are his fellow inmates and prison staff transformed by something called the Biophage.
Glen Schofield, CEO of Striking Distance, revealed in the blog post that the combat system “forces players to get up close and personal with our horrifying creatures,” and that they “combine melee combat and gunplay seamlessly with a unique gravity weapon called the GRP.”
The Callisto protocol launches on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, and PC.
