About The Callisto Protocol

In this narrative-driven, third-person survival horror game set 300 years in the future, the player will take on the role of Jacob Lee – a victim of fate thrown into Black Iron Prison, a maximum-security penitentiary located on Jupiter’s moon, Callisto. 

When inmates begin to transform into monstrous creatures, the prison is thrown into chaos. To survive, Jacob must battle his way to safety to escape Black Iron Prison, while uncovering the dark and disturbing secrets buried beneath the surface of Callisto. 

Using a unique blend of shooting and close-quarters combat, Jacob will need to adapt his tactics to combat the rapidly evolving creatures while scavenging to unlock new weapons, gear, and abilities to outrun the growing threat and escape the horrors of Jupiter’s Dead Moon.

Considering the ambitious approach of the studio with The Callisto Protocol with high-end visuals and mechanics, the system requirements are on par with that and require a fairly moderate system to run the game on decent settings. However, previously it has been reported that The Callisto Protocol has signed an exclusivity deal with AMD to add FSR 2.0 and much more in the game; other than that, it was also confirmed that the game will feature a 60 FPS performance mode, thanks to its next-gen capabilities.

The Callisto Protocol is now available for pre-order across all major gaming marketplaces. The game will be released on 2nd December for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
