      The Callisto Protocol key features

      Horror engineering

      The Callisto Protocol is a next-generation take on survival horror from the mind of Glen Schofield, creator of the Dead Space series. 

      Blending atmosphere, tension and brutality with terrifying moments of helplessness and humanity, immerse yourself in a pulse-pounding story where unspeakable horrors lurk around every corner.

      Master brutal, strategic combat

      Master a thrilling blend of hand-to-hand and ranged combat, including a unique gravity weapon once used by Black Iron guards to control the prison population. 

      Get up close and personal with grotesque opponents, hacking off limbs, blasting off legs and getting creative with whatever is at you disposal to survive each life-or-death encounter.

      Experience the isolation of Jupiter's dead moon

      One of the most hostile, isolated environments in the universe, Callisto looms large over Jacob’s desperate struggle to survive. 

      Players must not only contend with the horrors of Black Iron Prison, but also the centuries-old secrets that plague Jupiter’s long-dead moon, both above and below the surface.

      Characters brought to life - to escape certain death

      The Callisto Protocol cast includes Josh Duhamel (Transformers) as Jacob Lee, a cargo ship pilot trapped deep within Black Iron Prison, and Karen Fukuhara (The Boys), who plays a mysterious fellow inmate.
