During The Game Awards Striking Distance Studios, the new studio from one of Dead Space’s main creators Glen Schofield, announced The Callisto Protocol. It is a survival horror game set within a prison on the surface in the future where space travel seems regular. Yes, a horror in space, just like Dead Space. The trailer from The Game Awards hinted at suffering the ill-fated prisoner got but did not show detail. Now, Striking Distance Studios has released the red band trailer which does not hold back on the gore. If you fancy seeing blood and a face getting mangled then hit play. Otherwise, do not hit play.
The setting of The Callisto Protocol is below:
Set on Jupiter’s dead moon Callisto in the year 2320, The Callisto Protocol is a next-generation take on survival horror. The game challenges players to escape the maximum security Black Iron Prison and uncover its terrifying secrets. A blend of horror, action, and immersive storytelling, the game aims to set a new bar for horror in interactive entertainment.
“The Callisto Protocol is the culmination of decades of experience building AAA games,” said Glen Schofield, founder and CEO of Striking Distance Studios. “We’ve built a world class studio of passionate developers that is ready to once again tackle one of our all-time favorite genres—survival horror. We’re setting out to make one of the most terrifying games of all time, and we can’t wait to share more about The Callisto Protocol next year.”
Unfortunately we have a bit of a wait, The Callisto Protocol will launch sometime in 2022 with Krafton on publishing duties.
